Opened in 1882, the White Hart, has retained the tradition of a comfortable, relaxed and friendly place to catch up with friends for a meal, wine or cold drink. It is so easy to find and pop in right in the centre of the CBD and is a favourite for locals and visitors who enjoy a quiet chat.
During the last 12 months the White Hart and 2 staff members have earned rewards in the local WOW rewards for excellence in customer service.
Visit us at lunch time to enjoy a tasty “light lunch” from the special Bistro light lunch menu or alternatively select from the Main Bistro menu for lunch or for dinner in the evening. Our Chef’s pride themselves on their predominantly “housemade” selections, offering something for everyone including Gluten free and vegetarian options.
Our relaxed lounge bar features local and boutique wines by the glass, spirits and a selection of cold beers on tap.....perfect for that staff wind down, pre-dinner drink or after-dinner nightcap.
For those who are planning a celebration, our separate function room is available and seats up to 50 people, however if standing with finger food and drinks it has a larger capacity.
Our Function room is also available for groups organising day or evening meetings and trainings. Prices are on application, depending on requirements for your event.
