The White Hart Description

The White Hart is featured in these Guides:

Reputedly first licensed in 1216, Old Bailey archives reveal The White Hart has a colourful and interesting past. It was known as a popular watering hole for London's notorious highwaymen and rogues.

Regular customers included Jack Shephard and Richard (Dick) Turpin just prior to his hanging in 1739. Condemned men also stopped by for a final drink and the comfort of a good (bad) woman before facing the hangman's noose.

It is now owned by Chris and John Scott of The Morton-Scott Pub Company Ltd.

Quick Facts:

* Oldest licenced premises in London (reputedly 1216).

“I love this bar! I've spent many a night in the White Hart with work colleagues and it's always been a pleasure. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is always both lively and relaxing. A great venue for a quick pre-theatre drink or a lunch snack.”

Chris Parker, London (11 years 11 months 7 days ago)

“A lively family owned pub smack-bang in the middle of London's Theatreland, and has become a favoured haunt of cast and crew of many of the nearby Westend shows. Good staff, who are both friendly on the eye, and to speak to. The food & drinks are averagedly priced for the area, the food always of a high standard, with daily specials. The venue now has a late licence on Friday and Saturday nights, and they have just added a TV in the back of the pub for the World Cup.”

"Hi guys, I come here with my friends and have very good time. I like your place very much and is very good times. I come back when I can soon. Thank you very much." Which venue is this?

Hated

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
