This is such a famous pub as it was the favourite for WWII pilots during the Battle of Britain. Sadly the refurbishment has destroyed any real feeling of a connection to its past - just take a look at the pub's website. It looks like any bar anywhere in the UK with bland and 'bad taste' decor. Go see the original blackout board with the famous pilots' signatures in the Shoreham Aircraft Museum and have a pint in the Crown instead.

This isn't a pub in the traditional sense, it's a restaurant with a bar area. My wife and I popped in yesterday on our way back from a nice country walk and all we wanted was a sandwich. Was told they didn't do sandwiches but we could have a drink by the bar if we wanted as long as we didn't sit at a table.
Full of pretentious "I have a range Rover therefore I can park as I like" kind of people.

We used to come here for family birthday celebrations but have not been since October 2009. Why did it change hands or have a re fit it lost its charm.
Wish I had not bothered, I work in the restaurant business and I was extremely disappointed with the abrupt service, and food. We came for Sunday lunch we had not even got our coats off nor seated before asking what we wanted to drink, we obviously had not seen the menu at this point food or wine list so felt under pressure, I know you have to get orders in but please give us 5 minutes. Once the drinks came back we were then told various items not available which for a chain pub on a Sunday lunch was disappointing to here, obviously the head chef is not up to speed on his orders. Unfortunately the waitress who lacked in some English just mumbled and pointed at the menu, we then deduced that meant they were not on that day. With the long list of food and the Sunday specials we had a lot to check before deciding our choices, it seemed every few minutes we were being hassled for our order. Some chairs are really hard to sit on and have fake animal fur covers on which omit hair fibers in the air which end up not only on your clothes but in your food, well you hope its from there. Once we had the main course after the entrees 2 of the roast dinners were cold, then came the vegetables, I asked that these went back as these would get cold whilst we waited for the roasts to come back. The waitress (a different one from our order taker) did not understand my request to take it back, so they sat there. When the 2 roasts came back we suffered with tepid vegetables that sat on the table as it was easier. Then 3 of us had finished eating one had not, cutlery was not in the finished position but this did not stop the waitress trying to remove the plates, of which we had to tell her we had not finished. Food portions were very small in comparison to places I have been locally, much more over priced, please look locally and you will get better service and much better food. Bring back the family run and feel of the White Hart the corporate overtake is a shame. Will not go there again after going there since 1981!!

First visit since the refurb and was very pleasantly surprised at how well it's turned out. This pub contrasts very well with others in the area now and definitely provides an up market feel. Yes it is a shame that the past is lost but there are numerous country pubs in the immediate area and the white hart now stands out once again.
Perfectly good choice of beers and an excellent cocktail range.

This has to go down as one of the worst 'Pubs' in Kent. I spent a few days in Kent revisiting the towns and villages. I remebered this pub as one of the best. What have the renovators done. It is terrible and has lost all it's old world charm. But worse. The food was a disgrace. My steak overcooked and tough. The fruit crumble had no fruit and was all toasted crumble. My partner's food was a dry chicken leg and a bought cheesecake. Beer was just about OK but wine expensive and a poor selection. We were sat in the conservatory that was so cold we kept our coats on. We asked if we could move and were told there was no other table available.
What have they done top a well loved pub. All the history of Biggin Hill pilots has been lost. I wish I had not returned as my memory of a once loved pub has been destroyed. The satff were just not interested in our complaints and the manager was not available..

I will never return and suggest that this pub is given a wide birth. Crockham Hill pub where we wnt the next night has still retained it's charm and the food was great. Restored our faith in Kentish pubs.
