The White Hart, South Harting

This Sussex/Hants border pub is stacked to the roof with original features, delicious food and the South Downs to explore on its doorstep.

Right on the Hants/West Sussex border, near the town of Petersfield, is The White Hart. Located in the beautiful green and leafy countryside, it’s also within easy reach of Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton, making it the ideal spot for a South Downs jaunt.

This historic pub is full of wooden beams, roaring fires and other old school characteristics, with a good dash of sleek modernity thrown in for good measure.

The food here is eclectic without being too “out there”, with country pub faves such as Roast Rump of Lamb featuring alongside Thai Style Mussels. They also do some cracking sharers such as the Ramblers Board which requires only a hearty appetite for good food rather than full hiking attire to enjoy.

If you want to make a few days of it, you can choose to stay in one of the pub’s rooms complete with wooden feature walls, antler chandeliers and even a few rustic handmade bunk beds in the family room.

So, whether you fancy a restorative G&T after scaling the local countryside or need a cosy nook to hunker down with a glass of red, you’ll be able to find a little spot to do just that here.
