About the hotel
Since the reign of Richard II, the Whyte Harte has offered fine foods, real ales and comfort to travellers. Situated in the beautiful historic village of Bletchingley, the Whyte Harte is one of the few surviving Medieval Inns in Britain today, and is steeped in history. Said to date back to 1388, it possesses wooden beams, which are believed to be from ships of the time.
Bletchingly, was mentioned in the Dooms Day book and therefore evidence of it’s existence can be traced back to Saxon times. St. Mary’s church opposite the Whyte Harte dates back to 1100. Many of the original features of the pub can be seen today. The original fire grate dates back to 1613, and there is even a bakers oven in a recess. The site has also had more practical uses, in the 18th century it was used for what was called at the time as ‘rotten’ parliamentary elections and it’s hard to believe that Bletchingley returned two members of parliament while the somewhat larger city of Manchester returned none! In the 1950s the landlord of the time was well known for serving Jugged Hare, Mulled wine and clay pipes from the main fireplace. Today these fireplaces are still working. There are 3 in total, with the main one being the focal point in the bar. Nowadays you can sit and relax on our sofas and wile away the hours while we look after you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Whyte Harte Hotel
Very good recommend it.
Website does not include pictures of bedrooms-I wonder why?
The website pictures-quite faithfully-a very attractive inn.
Unfortunately, the bedrooms are less attractive.lots of chipped walls, old tissues behind the bed on both sides, a kettle that didn't work and a towel with black stains. All of these discovered very late evening, too late to complain or relocate. A great shame, as staff so pleasant & breakfast very good quality(once the omissions were added to our plate....)
Very sorry to be so negative, but apart from the need for a repaint, most of the other issues were avoidable if due attention had been paid. It should be impossible to miss big black stains on a white towel.
