Our Story

The historical White Hart Henfield dates from the 16th century and is a classic oak-beamed pub with a wealth of detail that will delight lovers of genuine English architecture.

A large inglenook fireplace crackles gently through winter evenings, giving an instant welcome and the low beams and candlelit dining rooms lend a real warmth to this friendly and relaxed ‘local’ on Henfield’s attractive High Street and only a few miles from the stunning South Downs. On sunnier days you can enjoy eating and drinking al fresco in the pretty walled garden.

Landlord Gyles Culver & his wife Mo and their family welcome you to this ancient haven of award winning ales, fine wines and locally sourced seasonal dishes inspired from around the world, making the White Hart the perfect choice for eating out in West Sussex.

Local Gem

Good food, good selection of drinks and prices are perfect. Also you can get lite bites and snacks on a Sunday which isn’t the case for quite a few other Henfield hostelries.

Excellent food and service

If there’s one thing better than the food here, it’s the staff!!! Come for the pan haggerty (it’s basically potatoes baked in egg and onion – but is nice) and stay for the people who work here. So helpful and always smiling.


Visited twice during my stay in the UK

This was a very nice older pub with excellent food. Tried several dishes and was a apprehensive about ordering fish and chips away from the coast but was pleasantly suprised with the quality and quantity. Service was excellent from a very nice waitress who was very busy. Highly recommend this pub to have lunch or dinner.
