The pub is set within the idyllic rural community of Wood Street Village, adjacent to the famous village green which hosts the only surviving Maypole in Surrey! The original building dates back to the 15th Century.
We invite you to come and experience our exciting and extensive new menu in this delightful village pub which has long been a focus of village life and has always had a fabulous reputation for great food, wine and beer. We are keen to carry on and grow this tradition and hope that you will come and try us out – we’re certain you won’t be disappointed.
Please take some time to browse our website, we look forward to welcoming you to The White Hart soon!
A brief history
Henry Herrett bought the house and land in 1827 from the executors of the insolvent James Mills. Mill’s daughter Mille had married a Yorkshire innkeeper. The 1827 sale transaction mentions additional structures: cottages and buildings which had possibly been built much earlier. It is likely that the successful Cobbett blacksmith family of the eighteenth century enlarged the house. The ground plan from the 1841 tithe map shows that there has been substantially little change until very recently. There is no mention of a beerhouse on the site: Herrett himself was a carpenter, and he had sublet to wheelwrights. Learn more about our history...
