Out of 6 posts in the past 4 years, just one negative one - which I disagree with. A no frills, no food pub - with TV sports, newspapers, pool table, internet (rare!) and a friendly owner/manager (Andy), with good natured customers. Not posh - a real old syle boozer; the last poster is spot on.

I popped in here after walking out of the pretentious Red Bar and found a very friendly local pub with good beer (although a very unadventurous choice of beer, Bombardier and Courage Best). Some of the other comments here show that people just do not appreciae a good honest pub. There are no frills here, but it is full of genuine friendly people.

At the suggestion of BITE we went there and it was awful, we couldn't wait to leave. The staff were very unfriendly, the interior shabby, all the clientel completey wasted by 7pm and awful music played too loud. Only postive was a good pint of bombadier, the other option was courage best but we did not hang about to try it. Unless you are a local, and a certain kind at that, leave it to them.

A-ha; a genuine local here and no mistake! No pretense, no illusions of grandeur, just a basic, working class boozer which doesn't flinch from down-to-earth, friendly banter, and generally allowing folk to have a ripsnorting good time. A rare pub in that it has (wisely) retained the traditional 2-bar layout and this works nicely, as there is a hatch allowing either area to be seen and heard but they remain two separate areas; one for drinking and the other more of a games area.
Not especially a pub for the beer connoisseur, although the ales seemed to be on song on my last visit (new barrel of Bombardier just installed). Some local chaps were indulging in a Chas 'n' Dave singalong (courtesy of one of those new-fangled jukeboxes that is digital and has access to every hit single since 1952) - okay so it's not for everyone and sometimes this would be too much, but in the White Hart it works and doesn't grate at all.
I absolutely concur with the previous commentator; this is a place where the wee wife would never find you. Don't rule out slipping down this side-street and stepping in for a spot of sneeky suppage!

Grand little pub 'off the beaten track' - in the centre of the town. Only pub in Dorking with free internet access. Well kept beers and family run. Good place to be when wife is shopping; she'll never find you !
