Staying at The White Hart, Stow on the Wold, Cotswolds
If you are intending to stay overnight, there are five rooms to choose from, ranging from the stunning “Stag”, with a free standing bath in the bedroom, to the snug “Fallow”. All rooms have been recently re-furbished, blending ancient stone and woodwork, with contemporary style and sophistication.
Some come back hoping to meet The White Hart Hotel’s non-paying guest, a friendly ghost whom the locals have nicknamed ‘George’. He sometimes manifests as a vertical white light after closing time in the bar, but only rarely appears as a figure – and then apparently for a reason.
History of White Hart Boutique Pub & Restaurant
It could also fill a whole chapter of a book on architecture. Parts of it date back to the 12th Century, it was a coaching inn from the 14th Century and there are two Tudor priest holes upstairs. The front of the building is relatively recent – merely Georgian!
There is a front bar which is popular with locals, a small side lounge which visitors find irresistible and a large back bar, which includes the oldest part of the building. The White Hart also offers a large restaurant and an extensive al-fresco dining area, with an extensive, locally sourced menu served throughout the hotel.
