The White Hart, Westerham, has undergone a significant investment that has given the much-loved eating and drinking spot a spectacular new look and ultra-stylish feel. 

The menu features a variety of pub classics with a modern twist, as well as exciting new flavours inspired by modern world-food trends. The elegant menu also boasts an assortment of seasonal specials which change daily. Paired with an extensive wine list and hand-crafted cocktails, a visit to The White Hart promises to be an exciting social dining and drinking experience.

Leading the charge is Head Chef, Christophe Pierrard who has been with the pub for ten years.

Whether you fancy something from the grill, such as Rotisserie Pork Belly or expertly aged Steaks, there’s something to suit all tastes, plus a dedicated Vegan Menu. A range of exciting small plates designed for sharing, make the perfect start to your dining experience; with dishes such as Pan-Fried King Prawns with Chill & Feta, Whipped Goats Cheese with Beetroot and Pear, and Chipotle Sticky Chicken, all freshly prepared by their expert team of chefs using the very best ingredients. 

On reopening, the “all new” White Hart in Westerham will provide a premium feel after undergoing a stylish overhaul. Established in 1885, the longstanding pub proudly features two open fireplaces, strategically placed in each dining area, casting a warm and inviting glow perfect for those chilly days and evenings. Alongside the new warm and cozy interiors, the pub has a spacious patio, seamlessly connected to a stunning large garden that’s adorned with vibrant plants and leafy trees.


In addition, The White Hart holds a significant connection to World War II and has incorporated this into some of its décor. During the Battle of Britain, pilots of Biggin Hill frequented the pub. The White Hart has paid tribute to this with a blackout board bearing the signatures of ‘the few’ pilots that were regulars here back in the day. This is complemented by a cherished collection of photographs of the pilots who left their mark on the historic site.

The beautiful new décor also extends to the bar area which has undergone a transformation that includes captivating feature wallpaper complemented by stylish over-bar pendant lighting. Unveiling new dividing curtains and adaptable seating arrangements, the Munition Room offers an intimate setting for private dining experiences whilst the Map Room, designed for casual dining, boasts charming bay window seating, accompanied by sofas around the fireplace for maximum elegance and comfort.

Externally, The White Hart features new picnic benches illuminated by festoon lighting and umbrellas to provide shelter for outdoor seating and sofa sets, so that guests can enjoy the surroundings.

The new and improved décor has left no stone unturned, taking inspiration from the UK’s most glamorous dining and drinking hotspots. Styled with sophisticated patterns, a colour palette featuring rich golds, decadent teals and deep caramel, alongside expertly crafted comfy furniture and eye-catching artwork, the pub is truly one-of-a-kind.

General Manager, Daniel Husk comments: “There are no words to describe the excitement and joy the entire team feels for The White Hart’s amazing makeover. We can’t wait to welcome our guests back, serving them our brilliant dishes, delicious cocktails, refreshing beers and the very best wines. We’re certain visitors will enjoy the new look as much as we do.” 

To make the weekends extra special, guests will be able to indulge in the Wine & Dine Experience, comprising three courses featuring scallops, steak and the devilish chocolate bomb dessert and a luxury bottle of wine priced at only £100 for the couple. Roast dinners at The White Hart are not to be missed – on Sundays, diners can enjoy a hearty roast with all the trimmings with family and friends. There’s also plenty of delectable deserts to choose from; including the Cheesecake Trio and the Mini Dessert & Cocktail option, where you can select your favourite of the minature desserts and pair it with a classic after-dinner cocktail. 

Still offering fantastic value, the lunch menu includes dishes under 600 calories, handstretched stone baked pizzas and freshly prepared sandwiches. 

The extensive cocktail menu includes classics with a twist, such as a Yuzu & Lime Margarita, everyone’s favourite Martinis and a selection of Spritz.
