"…with the emphasis on hearty fare and classic British dishes… Specialities here are the homemade steak and kidney pudding and the steak and ale pie." – Jamie Oliver on the White Hart

"We stopped here after a drive around the beautiful Essex countryside. An adorable little traditional pub with antique styled split log interior cosied up a little with tartan drapes, two fireplaces, an assortment of paintings and bits and pieces, with a ceiling full of hanging dried hops. I loved it.”

"I tried the steak and ale pie after reading Jamie Oliver's comment and it was fantastic. Gary had to help me eat it though it's definitely not for the slightly peckish. No wonder they call it the Pig & Whistle."

Rating 5/5
