About The White Hart

The White Hart is a fine old village pub full of character and charm where you’ll be assured of a friendly welcome, whether you join us for a quick drink, one of our delicious home-cooked meals or an overnight stay in our superb guest rooms.

We also have a separate function room ideal for a small private party or corporate events.

Located in the picturesque South Downs village of South Harting, West Sussex, we’re near Petersfield and just a few minutes from the A3, within easy reach of Chichester and Portsmouth. Our pub is an ideal watering hole for anyone walking the South Downs Way.

Close by is the The National Trust property Uppark, where H.G. Wells sometimes lived as a young man when his mother worked as a lady’s maid there. And we have another literary link – the Victorian writer Anthony Trollope spent the last years of his life in South Harting.

The White Hart is now part of the Upham Group, which owns Upham Brewery as well as several other local pubs in the South of England which have been sensitively upgraded in a way the locals and visitors really appreciate.

Don't just take our word for it

Had lunch with friends this week and could not have been better: interesting menu, beautifully prepared and presented food, good wine list, great ambience, service as attentive as can be. A wonderful day out!

Brilliant atmosphere, fantastic food and open fires all sewn up with great service. After a brisk walk along the South Downs there is nothing better than a swift pint or a delicious meal in front of an open fire in a charming village pub. Families, dogs, everyone's welcome. We love the place!

This pub is in great walking country near the South Downs Way. There is also a nearby National Trust property (Uppark House).The pub is very old but has been sympathetically restored. The food was some of the best pub food I have tasted in a long while. They were advertising breakfast with unlimited tea and coffee - would be very tempted on another visit!

Stayed at the white Hart for one night while in the area on business and WOW what a fabulous place. The room was spacious and modern but had a rustic charm. Absolutely spotlessly clean an extremely comfortable. Well appointed rooms with lovely toiletries and even a complimentary chocolate bar. All this for less than a budget hotel chain. I'm hooked I will be using this every time I'm in the area. I would also be thrilled to come here for a romantic weekend. A wonderful wee place...5 stars!!

Affordable luxury! The rooms have a spacious feel, and are very tastefully decorated with great character. The bed itself was extremely comfortable, offering a great night’s sleep. The surrounding area is very peaceful and our room looked out across the countryside, it was just perfect. The staff we met were all friendly and extremely helpful, nothing appeared to be too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bed & breakfast, just lovely!!

This pub has got everything right. Full of character with lots of oak beams and fireplaces and comfortable places to sit and eat. A nice varied menu, lovely food, good beer and attentive friendly staff. The icing on the cake was our room, which was easily the nicest room we have ever stayed in. We have stayed here twice now and will definitely return! An absolute delight!
