Dating from the 17th century, the White Hart has proven to be a popular retreat for those appreciating good food, fine wine, real ales and comfortable cottage-style accommodation.

On arrival, why not sample some of the real ales or fine wines available in the comfort of our warm and friendly bar and lounge?

A little bit of history...
Elizabeth I was Queen of England when The White Hart first opened its doors and it has always been the principal inn at Cricklade, a town which calls itself "the threshold of the Cotswolds" All 14 rooms are en-suite and well appointed with all the conveniences expected by the modern traveller - including wi-fi.

The inn had to wait over 250 years before its heyday which came after the Vale of White Horse hunt split into two 'counties'. The year was 1886 and when the hunt built new kennels on the edge of town, Cricklade became a major centre for hunting in the area. The White Hart was rebuilt in 1890 to provide suitable accommodation for hunting people who would stay for part of the season. Even today, it still oozes late Victorian comfort whether you are staying overnight or just visiting the large, plush lounge. Just to underline its position as the town's leading licensed premises, The White Hart has a unique and splendid canopy which spans the pavement. John & Sam are relatively new to The White Hart, having bought the pub & hotel in 2009, and intend to ensure that The White Hart's proud traditions are carried on for years to come.
