Old White Hart Now Open

During lockdown we have been busy cooking for the NHS in Kettering, 17,040 meals in total. Also sprucing up the Pub and garden.
Please reserve tables by phone or email so we can manage the flow of our customers. We can also offer take away meals.
We are lucky that we have a spacious layout with 3 bars, 2 restaurants, a large patio and garden.

The health and wellbeing of our guests is important to us and we will be following strict hygiene routines and social distancing following government guidelines. We will clean and sanitise all bedrooms, bathrooms, and communal areas thoroughly.
We are introducing a one-way flow where possible for with ‘in’ and ‘out ‘doors clearly marked.
The opening up of the economy following the COVID-19 outbreak is being supported by NHS Test and Trace. We are assisting this service by keeping a temporary record of our customers and visitors for 21 days to assist NHS Test and Trace with requests for that data if needed. This could help contain clusters or outbreaks.
We are looking forward to the return of our fabulous team and opening our whole pub and welcoming you all back again.

Old White Hart Inn

A traditional pub in the heart of the community as well as superb dining, wine and real ales. We have high quality accommodation in our 14 rooms adjoining the pub and 6 in our annex further along the village. We have built an enviable reputation providing attentive, friendly service to our customers. Why not come on a sunny evening and play boules on our 6 piste or listen to the church bell ringing practice on a Thursday evening.

We are also open from 8th March for dinner on Sunday evenings 6.00 – 8.00pm.  The bar is open 6.00 – 10.00pm (Sunday).  Our south facing garden and patio is a wonderful place to sit on a sunny day.

We are sorry but we do not allow dogs.
