To celebrate the re-opening of the White Hart in Hamstead Marshall, we’re delighted to be able to offer one lucky reader a wonderful prize in the latest Penny Post Quiz: answering six questions followed by a bit of re-arranging is all that stands between you and a meal for two, a bottle of house wine, a room for the night and and breakfast the following morning at The White Hart.
Many thanks to owner Stella Coulhurst for donating this generous prize.
The White Hart Inn offers everything a proper English pub should – good food (traditional, rather than nouvelle or fusion), great beers (some brewed on the premises), smashing wine, log fires, a pretty garden, a warm welcome and nine delightful guest rooms. For more information, click here.
