about us

The White Hart is run by The Local Pub Trading Company who bought it in 2006 to prevent the site being turned into houses. After hands on management for the first two years, it was passed to tenants until May 2013, when we came back to once again take the helm.

Whilst Lynda does most of the cooking, and Calum tends the bar, we are ably supported by lots of local talented chaps and chapesses, who will quickly get to know your favourite tipple. Ava and Stinky Stan are the original house dogs, and now we have Bella the puppy too. Ava was picked up on our travels through France, came with us to Rio and is now very much enjoying the Suffolk countryside. Stan was found dumped on the road not far from the pub but quickly decided this was a good place to be and is chief meeter and greeter. We are a very, very dog friendly pub as Stinky, Ava and Bella love meeting new friends... and we love children who love dogs too!

The White Hart is not part of any chain and is a Free House independent of tie. Any suggestions as to new dishes, beers, wines or an activity you would like to try, or a group you would like to bring in, then come and talk to us. We are very friendly...
