Reputedly first licensed in 1216, Old Bailey archives reveal The White Hart has a colourful and interesting past.
It was known as a popular watering hole for London's notorious highwaymen and rogues.
Regular customers included Jack Shepard and Richard (Dick) Turpin just prior to his hanging in 1739. Condemned men also stopped by for a final drink and the comfort of a good (bad) woman before facing the hangman's noose.
It is now owned by Chris and John Scott of The Morton-Scott Pub Company Ltd. We would love to return it to it's former glory but the law won't allow us, so all we ask is for you to...
