White Hart

  • Bars and pubs
Southbank

The conviviality seeps through the wraparound windows on approach to this solid backstreet pub, a single-room Edwardian rebuild among Dickensian workers’ terraces. Drinking in the precincts of the great stations is often a desperate act of necessity, rather than a choice, but it’s nice to find such a homely place so close to Waterloo. The pub’s sparse, traditional countenance is welcome in an age of OTT gastro makeovers.

It’s big on real ales (with a Cask Marque acceditation for quality of keeping and serving) and craft beer. The menu offers mostly modern pub standards – fish and chips, burger – and there is a Saturday brunch menu as well as a Sunday menu with the option of several roasts. 

So go for the fine drinks and the merry chatter; try it on a Sunday, when I imagine it would be a great spot for an afternoon’s lounging.

Very disappointing. Food was average to terrible for the price, staff made you feel as if they're prefer you left, and were completely unphased / unapologetic at having messed up a booking. The only redeeming factor was the choice of beer, but there are probably a dozen better places within a short walk. Avoid.

Quite simply put; the White Hart is the best pub in Stokey - FACT! There are plenty of chairs and tables (perfectly sized for different groups) to accommodate different sizes of groups, plenty of screens to watch the footie and the biggest you are likely to see this side of Timbuktu. I've made it into my and my mates local because of the great beer on offer and it's so close to my house (don't tell them that though ;-)) If I could give more than five stars I would. See you tonight guys!!

It's a shame I'm not able to give a ZERO stars rating, this place is abysmal. The staff were exceedingly rude, the menu was wrong, we were only informed of this fact after we'd spent ages deciding on our meals, and in fact all the menus on all the tables were wrong, we were handed a scrap of paper with a rubbish little list of foods to choose from, and the bar man made it out as if it was our fault?! Rude RUDE man!!!
