Join us for our next Local Dining Out Evening at The White Hart, Bishopstone, Salisbury
on Wednesday 24th February 2016

Location:   The White Hart at Bishopstone, Salisbury
The White Hart is situated in the Heart of Bishopstone near Salisbury Racecourse, just a quick journey turning off the A354 Salisbury to Blandford at Coombe Bissett. It is a traditional 18th century family pub and restaurant run by Greg, Tom & Zara. It has a lovely large beer garden and children’s play area. During the winter there are three real fires to keep you cosy while you dine.

Dining: .   Restaurant
Most of the main floor area inside The White Hart is given over to a very comfortable restaurant. We found this restaurant very cosy with a lovely atmosphere on our last Local Dining Out Dinner there in February 2015. The service provided by the owners was really good and we were made extremely welcome, hence our return this year. That's without talking about the marvellous home-cooked food!!

Travel: .  

Herrington's Coach Door to Door
We have arranged pick up points as near as possible to where you live, more can be added. Our coach will be from Herrington's Coaches, the coach size will depend upon ticket sales. Our first pick up point is in Sandleheath then through to
Downton. (picture is not of the exact coach expected)

Drinks: .   Buy your drinks at the bar on arrival
The White Hart will normally have Doombar and Long Blonde beers, also Shasrps Atlantic may be available. The bar is strategically placed as you enter the building, walking through to the dining area. Wine, cider, spirits and soft drinks are available, also tea/coffee later on in the evening. Please remember to pay for your drinks as you go during the evening. Wine List.

We continue to raise money for the Shelter Box charity which supports emergency aid to places in the World which have been suddenly struck by natural disaster.
