In the idyllic hamlet of Ford, near Chippenham, The White Hart is a quintessential English country pub, delivering well-loved British classics made using fresh, seasonal ingredients. The refurbished 16-century pub boasts a spacious terrace for al fresco summer dining; inside, cosy décor includes some of the building’s original features, with clashing tartan upholstery, exposed brick walls & painted wall panels painted in fresh tones of sea-blue and mint green, as well as distressed-look tables & benches.
The White Hart specialises in juicy Black Angus steaks, cooked to perfection in the charcoal oven. Other favourites on the menu include tea-smoked duck with wild mushrooms, mixed leaves & pine nuts, slow-cooked pork with sage, apple, creamed potato & kale, and Gloucester sausages with mash, topped with rich bacon & onion gravy.
For something different, try a sharing platter with friends, such as the baked box Camembert with sourdough toast & sticky onion jam. The menu also features sandwiches & ciabattas, a selection of vegetarian & kids’ dishes, and a list of tempting desserts. Traditional roast is served on Sundays, and the pub also boasts a large selection of lagers, ales & cider, as well as a list of wine wines and refreshing cocktails mixed by the skilled bar team.
The White Hart in Chippenham is a 10-minute drive from Chippenham Rail Station.

Proper country pub - a couple of decent veggie options

Food was nice although no mention on website that they don't offer the lunch menu at weekends, so cost us a bit more than planned. The pork sharing platter could have done with some chilli jam (rather than the two creamy accompaniments) to cut through the richness. Also could do with a bit of tidy up decoration wise. I imagine in summer it's really nice to sit outside.

Atmosphere, table request all good. Starter choice poor so we opted for olives and hummus to share. Generally food was good but my wife ordered a ribeye steak cooked medium. I would be very surprised if it was a ribeye as it was grisly and had a fat band along one edge like a sirloin. It was also overcooked and dry. It was awkward to complain due to dining with new friends but when the waitress collected the plates, my wife mentioned it to her but although she said sorry, there was no response from the kitchen. Will be reluctant to return although previously we have enjoyed a meal in the summer last year.
