About Us

Old White Hart Inn

This charming and attractive Country Inn is set amongst the sandstone cottages of Lyddington, a rural conservation village surrounded by the slopes of the Welland Valley.

This 17th Century building has retained its original beamed ceilings, stone walls and open fires with a great pub garden and patio area. The owners Stuart and Holly East have been running the Pub for 22 years.

Whether sampling the real ales or dining in our Bar or Restaurant, a warm welcome always awaits. Private Hire is available in Antlers Restaurant for Celebrations or Conferences. We also offer the highest quality bed and breakfast accommodation in our 20 refurbished bedrooms with competitive rates, either above the pub or in pretty cottages.

We are sorry but we do not allow dogs.
