COVID 19 (corona virus update)
Dear customers and friends
In line with the Government’s recent announcement our pubs will now be fully closed for the short term to protect lives.
To serve our local communities we had tried to keep many of our pubs open for takeaway and for the hotel users and some of our pubs even served groceries in their villages. But to protect the health and safety of our teams and our customers we will now close our business in its entirety until advised that we are able to re-open. We’re all hoping it won’t be for too long.
If you need to contact us in the meantime please use our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible. We all wish you good health and spirits in these difficult times until we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to your local.

The wonderful old The White Hart has been restored, retaining its glorious character and charm, but enriched by a few quirky and luxurious touches. Set in the quaint Hampshire village of Overton for over five centuries, The White Hart now offers fabulous food and drink and luxurious, comfortable rooms in the stylish surroundings of this historic inn.
Enjoy a drink on our sun trapped garden patio or head inside to our warm and cosy snug or village bar. Or for a leisurely meal with friends, our beautiful main dining room is the perfect place to enjoy a meal from our classic yet modern menu of delicious dishes. Our 12 stylish, individually designed en-suite bedrooms also offer the ideal base for those travelling through on business in nearby Basingstoke or looking for a weekend stopover to explore Overton and beyond.
“Loved it. Our room in the converted stable block was beautiful and very comfortable, the food in the restaurant was sublime and great atmosphere in the bar. The service from the moment we entered till we left was 1st class. You must visit this place!!! We will be returning for a longer visit.” Review, Tripadvisor
“Fantastic service, so friendly and nothing too much bother. Food was excellent and the room was beautiful, massive bathroom with a lovely freestanding bath. Such a cosy place with a fire going in the snug area of the bar, perfect for a weekend away. It was the first time I've taken my boyfriend away for his birthday, thank you to The White Hart for earning me extra brownie points! I don't normally go back to hotels as I like trying new places but I would definitely come back here.
The rooms of the hotel are beautifully decorated and serviced to a high standard. Beds are very comfortable and offer a great night’s sleep...We arrived back from our business day for a few drinks in the bar and the staff on duty were an absolute credit to The White Hart, very friendly. Following morning breakfast was a great start to the day...A truly delightful old coaching inn well worth a visit. l would fully recommend a stay here.
I recently stayed and ate at the White Hart. My room was well appointed and spotlessly clean! I was served at the bar by a very friendly and professional barman called Alex who had a thorough knowledge of the well-cellared real ales brewed by the pubs owners, the Upham brewery. My food order was taken by Becky who had a thorough knowledge of the menu and confidently recommended dishes for me from a varied menu. The food was excellent and I'll definitely stay here again!
Thank the Lord for Upham Brewery for realising what a Gem this place could be. From the time we entered the main bar, early on a Friday afternoon, to registering for our one nights' stay we were met by smiling and helpful staff and a very acceptable pint of fine ale and a beautifully prepared light(ish) lunch. We were able to book straight into our room in the "Stable Yard" and were very pleased with the excellent fixtures and fittings, comfortable bed, tea and coffee making facilities and, THEN, the en-suite!!! Blimey!!! What an excellent room! Big enough to hold a small dance with a lovely free-standing bath, good sized basin and a wet room type shower that would grace any five star establishment.

Following the Government announcement, we have had to close until we are advised that we can re-open. We know how important the role of the village pub is to each community, and we kept open for as long as possible to serve you. We truly hope we can welcome you back in before too long!
We would sincerely like to thank you for your past and ongoing support and hope you and your families keep safe and well in these difficult times. We really look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back before too long.
