Enjoyed a lovely weekend at the White Hart, Newenden. A building steeped in history, with low beams and oozing with character in a very historic village. We stayed in room 2, Waterfields. Our photographs probably don't do it justice but it is a huge room with modern decor and furnishing balanced with the traditional beams and quirky layout of a building some 400 years old. Loads and I mean loads of storage of storage space, extremely comfortable bed and a huge bath just make the stay even more memorable. And at this unique challenging time, we were impressed with their Covid cleanliness measures. Very hearty breakfast served, promptly served by very welcoming hosts. Though we didn't spend an evening in the bar due to other plans it looked very cosy with the log fire ablaze and warm friendly atmosphere generated by the staff and patrons. We would definitely return and especially consider this in the next two months as we noticed they are offering a stay for 2 and get an additional night for free offer during October and November, on a very reasonably priced room anyway. Thank you again all at the White Hart.

My Mrs and I took two different friends of ours to meet for the first over a nice afternoon dinner in the Kent countryside. Due to the ongoing situation with the pandemic etc everyone at the pub was sat outside in little booths - which were lovely and made extra special with little heaters!
The food and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend the cheesy garlic bread for starter and the beef burger as a main ! They were delicious! The outside bar was a nice touch also. We were served by a lovely young lady on her first day and she was really nice and helpful!
Location is brilliant with plenty of parking available - or if you don’t fancy driving there is a bus stop right outside on a regular bus route (service 2 - Hastings > Ashford / Ashford > Hastings)!
We will definitely be returning one day once the whole world is back to normal, maybe even have a ride on a steam train!

Hubby and I stayed at this lovely pub for a couple of nights whilst visiting East Sussex & Kent. We were welcomed to the pub and shown to our room, which was Vinson (room 1), it's a large open room with a beamed ceiling and the old fireplace utilised for the tea/coffee/kettle etc. The room looked out onto the neighbouring Oast house, fields and the car park, a couple of chairs and a table placed at the window was pleasant to sit at. There is a lovely en suite bathroom with a vanity table which was a lovely touch. There was a slight problem with the bathroom door not closing as the latch was bent, this was sorted efficiently by the staff. We ate here both nights , sat in the lovely garden first evening with spaced benches for social distancing and the 'stables' looked cosy. The food was very good and the staff friendly, food service was quick . We would both recommend the Banoffee Sundae if you like a dessert. The real ale on tap is from local breweries and the usual lagers etc. Breakfast in the morning was served in the restaurant by the landlord, it was a good breakfast with cereal/yogurts/fruit, juices/tea & coffee and various options of cooked breakfast, served efficiently and quickly. The atmosphere in the pub was friendly and the staff very helpful. The whole place was very clean and tables washed down regularly. The White Hart is a good base for visiting local areas such as Rye, Bodiam, Dungeness etc. it was lovely to go back to after a day of visiting places.

I almost never write negative reviews as I don't want to carelessly hurt someone's business but where the public is being ripped off and given a bad experience I think it's fair.

The pub was cosy and the mac and cheese was excellent so I was optimistic about staying there overnight. Unfortunately the room (a small one at the end of a corridor near the fire escae) was very poky and grotty. Opening the cupboard in the room I found it actually a plumbing cupboard, a dirty mess of grumbling pipes and equipment. The fact that no one thought to seal off this cupboard from guests or at the very least clean it, is a clear sign of the careless attitude shown to customers.

In the morning I came back down the stairs hoping to sit for a while or stroll through the village before breakfast and found that I'd been locked into the hotel section and no amount of knocking on the door or calling brought anyone to free me. The only way out was to 'escape' through the fire exit past a filthy, dilapidated bin area. It must have been about 8.30 when I finally left and still nobody had turned up to open the doors and 'free' (let alone welcome) the overnight guests, serve breakfast or even take payment (I had to phone them later for the latter and of course I had no breakfast.)
When i mentioned this to the management on the phone afterwards they seemed quite baffled by my objection explaining that it was my fault as I had requested a later breakfast. It was almost funny how little idea of customer service or hotel management they had. Except it's really not funny to treat people like this when they are shelling out their cash.

What makes it so galling is that they charge nearly as much as the various really excellent places in the area where the rooms are immaculate and the service and comfort superlative. (Queens Inn in Hawkhurt comes to mind.) Seeing other reviews here I'm guessing some of the rooms are better than others, but please do inspect the rooms before committing.

A difficult place to review, as its a bit like the curates egg (good in parts), which is probably a little unfair as it was actually good in many areas. On arrival, from outside the premises looked a little unkept, but the interior belied the first impressions, being nicely decorated and laid out, with a roaring woodfire adding to the ambience. The bedroom was quirky with sloping floors (not a criticism, just an observation) although the decor needed tidying up in the window bay. The bed was comfy and the bathroom nicely appointed with lashings of hot water. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful, as was the landlord. The evening meals were well cooked and tasty and reasonably priced and the beer was good. Its a good location for a number of National Trust properties (Batemans, Scotney Castle, Smallhythe and others, as well as the heritage railway at Tenterden. NB if you want the room made over, please put the hanger outside the door or advise the staff

We always drive down quiet roads when returning home, to find ourselves the more remote pubs/restaurants and the quieter villages.
We found this pub/restaurant on the way through on our Sunday coming back and stopped in.
We have 2 dogs and we’re allowed inside in a smaller niche area. Ordered a couple of drinks and presented with a menu allowing us to choose 1, 2 or 3 courses for a set price. Whether it be a Sunday menu or daily menu, the main courses were orientated around the roast dinner. There were variations of starters and deserts but we were here for the mains.

I had the slow belly pork and partner the chicken roast.
The quality of the meats were A1 both in taste and presentation served with trimmings, veg and Yorkshire. There was plenty to eat to which neither of us finished ourselves.

The staff were attentive and polite, not only to us but also the dogs. Well worth a stop.
Although we passed through on a cold winters day, there is a decent size garden looking over a field with plenty of seating

We stayed overnight at the White Hart, enjoyed drinks in the beer garden and also had a fantastic dinner in the dining room.

The pub is beautiful, so much history and the open fire place is fantastic. Every member of staff that we met was extremely friendly and welcoming.

Dinner in the dining room was delicious and great value. The pizzas are amazing and the salad I had was huge!

The room we had overnight was a very good size with a gorgeous bathroom. The only things to be aware of is that due to the historical nature of the building, noise does travel up from the pub to the rooms above. We could literally hear word for word the conversations down below! Also if you are taller in height,be prepared to duck in the bathroom especially!

I would definitely recommend for a drink, dinner or overnight stay.

Attended with a group of friends for a drink and a bite to eat. We got our drinks and sat down to study the bar menu. I chose the ham, egg and chips at £12.99 and went to the bar to order. The staff member punched my order into the till, and said “that will be £14.28 please”.

When I queried the price difference, I was told that this due to the 10% service charge. I asked why this was being charged this amount and was told “it was standard in the hospitality industry now”. It isn’t. Was also told the service charge was mentioned on the menu. It wasn’t.

I don’t mind tipping or paying a service charge if someone has waited on our table and genuinely delivered good service, but to be forced to pay it for someone to walk a plate from the kitchen to table is a bit much.

A great short break. A friendly country pub, excellant real ales and a welcoming log fire.
Really good value for money with a modernised bedroom and bathroom with a large walkin shower.
Food was good quality pub fare at a reasonable price, a first class English breakfast is included.

Have been a customer of the White Hart for over 20 years and never had a bad meal, however recently I visited with family and 3 of us had the White Hart Posh Dog, I would not recommend this dish as I could only manage half of it and for all 3 of us it was like the BBC - many repeats throughout the night.
The service was a bit slow, but that is down to the experience of the staff on the day we visited.

David.

Cant remember the menu, but they definitely do roasts - we had an amazing roast (and there were 17 of us!) - all came out hot and plentiful.
