Situated in the picturesque village of Newenden in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The White Hart freehouse oozes character and charm. It has served the local community and surrounding area since the 16th Century and if walls had ears it would, we know, have lots of interesting tales to tell - over a decent pint of fine cask ale, naturally! Our menus are thoughtfully created and our food homemade using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
