Situated on the bank of the River Trent, the White Hart’s history can be traced back to 1844 when it was one of nine public houses in West Stockwith listed in Kelly’s Directory for Nottinghamshire. It is now the only pub in the village which retains its original name.
The White Hart has been the home of the Idle Brewery since the brewery’s launch in 2007.
It is now a popular stopping off point for walkers and boaters alike, exploring the north eastern edge of Nottinghamshire.
The pub was taken over and refurbished in September 2012 by the Head Brewer, Brian Cooper and his wife, Elaine.
The White Hart Inn has become one of the popular pubs in the area, not only catering for the village of West Stockwith but attracting customers from miles around; not just for the superb beers and ales from The Idle Brewery next door but for the inexpensive and quality meals on offer. The majority of the meals are homemade using local resources where available.
Live music on Friday nights brings the crowds in and during the summer months the beer garden is packed with regulars and visitors alike.
