The White Hart is an independent Traditional Pub & Steakhouse set in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside within easy reach of many local tourist attractions such as Buxted Park and The Ashdown Forest. The recently refurbished restaurant and bar combines clean open plan design with some of the traditional features of an old English Public House, creating a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere.
Along with the classic British pub bar & restaurant there is the conservatory restaurant, perfectly suited for both social and business gatherings. In the warmer months, the country garden is open for diners, drinkers and events.
We strongly believe that the food should speak for itself.
Here at The White Hart all the simple, classic dishes that you know and love are created using the best quality, locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and presented to you 'perfectly' all for a reasonable price. What more can you ask?

Our Forest Function Room is a conservatory restaurant that is perfectly suited to any occasion. From standing parties of around 60 people with a vast selection of buffet dishes to choose from, to a more sophisticated dining experience for around 40 people we can tailor our services to your exact requirements. With many years of experience in catering for both small ‘boutique’ events and large corporate functions our kitchen team will work with you to ensure an appropriate and delicious menu.
The decor in the Forest Function Room is very flexible which allows us the ability to customise the space to your specific event.
The Forest Function Room backs on to the garden which means in the warmer months you have the added benefit of being able to ‘extend’ the usable area into an al fresco dining situation.
