Situated in the centre of the well regarded and picturesque village of Bishops Caundle, The White Hart is a well presented Grade II Listed character village freehouse with origins reputedly dating back around 450 years. This well-appointed village inn retains many attractive character features which include a character main bar area and 40 cover restaurant, skittle alley/function room with a capacity of 100, and a commercial catering kitchen with ancillary facilities. There is also a family sized 3 double bedroomed owner’s accommodation with sitting room and bathroom.

The White Hart is a popular and well regarded business with an excellent reputation which benefits from impressive levels of regular year round repeat trade, not only from the village, but also from the surrounding villages and towns. The landmark trading position also ensures that there is a regular passing trade from those using the busy Dorset cross country road. The pub benefits from its own website which provides further background on the business.
