This is a traditional stone cottage style Cumbrian pub, serving Barnsley Bitter, Black Sheep Best and a selection of Jennings beers. Situated on the edge of the South Lakes near Windermere, you can easily go on the lake via boat or walk the nearby fells and relax back here to end the day's exertions.
The frontage of the pub is unassuming, but there is a large car park to the rear which is overlooked by a huge picture window in the multi-level pub.
Inside the traditional décor is supported by old photographs and paintings of Lakeland life all over the walls. There are also hunting trophies and some brewery memorabilia to keep your attention and add to the cosy atmosphere you find at the White Hart. This is partly from the real fire which warms the cold winter nights in the lakes.
Sometimes closed in the winter, it is always best to check that it is open at New Year before you travel.
Food (children's menu available) is served lunch and evenings (Mon & Tue 6-8.45pm, Wed-Sun 12-2.30 & 6-8.45) and varies from the traditional to the something special - though so do the prices. However, the food was excellent and the service came with a smile.
The accommodation is well kept, clean and tidy and the views from the windows stunning first thing in the morning.
Traditional pub games are also played here.
There is disabled access and toilet facilities.
