Food and Drink
William Verrel the celebrated 18th century chef originally owned the White Hart from 1737 to 1760 and he introduced French Cuisine to the British public, his recipe book is still in print today.
Whilst his dishes may not sit comfortably with today’s tastes we are proud to uphold the traditions of excellent food, drink and hospitality. Our oak panelled dining room and conservatory with spectacular views of the South Downs is open daily for lunch and dinner featuring freshly prepared dishes. Morning coffee and afternoon tea, light lunches and snacks are served in the bar and lounges, where on winter days roaring log fires add to the atmosphere of this historic inn. On Sundays the White Hart hotel offers a carvery where selections of roast joints are always available.
Of course we can also cater for private parties and pride ourselves on the facilities we can offer for family celebrations, private dinners, informal ‘get-togethers’. The sheriff’s room and County suite are both available for private hire and our banqueting team will be pleased to advise you on the most suitable menus for specific occasions.
