With a spacious beer garden for open-air dining, The White Hart – Otley is a refurbished gastro pub serving a selection of modern British dishes. Inside, guests can warm themselves by roaring log fireplaces as they enjoy a refreshing drink or tuck into a traditional Sunday roast.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The White Hart menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The White Hart bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The White Hart – Otley is just a 5-minute drive from Weeton Rail Station.

    Rather poor experience. Tables very close together. Seemed to be run by young inexperienced people. Asked the barman to wipe the sticky counter and his response was "I'll do it later"! Asked for gluten free menu. There wasn't one just a folder containing the ingredients of every dish - not something I want to wade through on an evening out. The food was pretty poor and not much of it for 3 of us and then the gluten free gammon was huge and topped with two eggs which were over cooked and pineapple and chips. No vegetables for any one apart from small salads. Not much finesse or decent cooking here. Disappointing in what is an attractively presented venue with nice outdoor space.

    Food and atmosphere good. Used to have Timothy Taylor's Landlord (since I first visited in 1993) but have removed it for poor second rate beers - now like Wetherspoons!
    Nice place but I only went there for the beer and it had disappeared

    Lovely menu with some interesting choices. Very well presented. Good choice of wines and pleasant atmosphere in a rustic surrounding including outside tables in good weather.

    Only concerns were the service; too few staff on duty - had to wait 30 mins for 1st drink at our (pre booked) table which was disappointing as it was a birthday celebration and we had to keep asking. No wine menu offered until asked twice. Drinks took a while to appear as did our bottle of wine - we had an apology but the reason being " we are busy" is not good enough really?. Staff worked really hard - and with a smile on their face- so no criticism of their efforts but this place, when full, needs much more waiting and bar staff. It was a mid week evening so cannot imagine how Fridays/weekends are managed.

    Five stars for everything from the five of us who dined here.
    Every waiter/waitress we saw and came into contact with were young student types. So helpful, polite and it soon became obvious they had been trained to a very high standard.
    The food was first class and an excellent choice to suit all tastes.
    We will return.

    Very nice experience. Always enjoy it. Only criticism was that my wife's lamb rump was a bit chewy and she says she would not order gain.

    The staff are really nice and very friendly.
