“ The White Hart offers the potential to be developed into a great local pub business for showing live sport. The pub has a mezzanine floor offering a separate area for people to eat, drink and socialise away from the main bar area. There is an outside patio area that has the potential to be developed further into a quality outside drinking area. ”
