White Hart

Melton Mowbray, LE13 1RB

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


Located in the Leicestershire market town of Melton Mowbray the White Hart is located on one of the main roads into the town and is ideally located for access to the town centres main shopping areas and the famous market square. Melton Mowbray, usually referred to locally as just Melton, is famous for the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie and as the centre of Stilton Cheese production. Melton Mowbray is also recognised as the “Rural Capital of Food” with foodies from near and far going to visit making lots of custom in for local businesses.

Pub Layout

The White Hart has a traditional feel to it but has been decorated tastefully making a welcoming space inside. It is a large open plan operation, split on two levels. The lower level to the front of the premises is currently laid out for casual drinking and sports viewing with the upper section towards the rear being geared for entertainment such as pool, darts, pub team games, sports viewing and vertical drinking.

The trading area has a long well laid out bar servery to cater for both draught beers, lagers, ciders, wines, spirits and minerals. Out to the rear is a small but well used flagged drinking patio for customers wanting to enjoy the warmer weather outside. Adjacent to the bar servery is a compliant catering kitchen which is not currently in use.

Currently trading as a wet only sports pub, it majors on a well presented draught range and a good offering of bottled beers, ciders and a good range of spirits, soft drinks and wines. There is no food on offer at present but there is the opportunity to develop a simple hot and cold snack food menu from the catering kitchen. Retaining current and increasing the number of pub teams (pool, darts, crib etc) would be key to mid week trade.

Large accommodation split over two levels. The first floor has two large reception rooms and a kitchen, on the second floor is three bedrooms and a large bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, sink and toilet.

Listen to our CEO, Chris Jowsey give his views […]
