UPDATE: 8TH JULY, 2020
Welcoming you back to the Hart of the community once more…
We are re-opening with a Summer long garden party and are implementing a new booking system. Bookings will be available from midday onwards on Friday July 17th here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-white-hart-tickets-110861293112
Landlady Sharon Elliott, who took over 17 months ago and refurbished the public and lounge bars, has used lockdown in a positive way to remodel the garden with a bespoke dining area for up to 60 guests with improved seating and shelter.
“The booking system we are using is Eventbrite, which you can find via the website or our Facebook page.” Said Sharon.
“Customers seeking food, drink or attending an event will have to book ahead and produce a ticket on arrival. There is no charge, but it allows us to monitor numbers. Guests need to arrive within 10 minutes of their booking slot.
“All food and drink will be table service only, with up to 60 guests each time. Regulations may alter as we near re-opening and we ask guests to be aware we may have to adapt accordingly to adhere to social distancing.”
Sharon said: “We want to make the most of our spacious garden to run events and welcome both locals and visitors as people end lockdown, plan holiday breaks or enjoy reunions with their family and friends.
“Outdoor events such as cinema nights, our popular quiz nights, live music and screenings can be organised on our lawn, but they all have to adhere to safety guidance.
Located in the Corn Market, the Grade II listed White Hart is one of Wimborne’s oldest buildings and dates back to 1648, when it was originally used as stabling for Wimborne Minster.
The team will serve a menu of salads, steaks, burgers and pizza in the garden as well a daily special. Payments will be taken through cards with contactless up to £45. All customers need to enter and exit from the rear because there is no parking on site, and there is parking at King Street and other car parks locally.
The revised outside seating area is modelled around a bespoke Cook Out Cabin, featuring a wood fired pizza oven and Big Green Egg BBQ and smoker, offering versatility in fresh cooked pub classics.
Chef Al Boudreaux will be outside barbecuing, preparing salads, baked potatoes and daily specials.
Sharon concludes: “The ethos is keep it simple, keep it safe, build confidence and go from there. We are proud to be part of this wonderful local community and we’re excited to welcome customers once again.”
