Part of our Best Pubs in London microsite. See if we've included your local.
We can't claim that the White Hart is remarkable, or even in Southwark's top 10 pubs, but it does have several features that make it worthy of inclusion in our 'best pubs' catalogue.
First and foremost, it's a handsome little devil, with its ubiquitous glazed tiles and dark wooden panelling. None are original — all installed in a recent Fuller's refurb — but there's no denying the character of the place.
The second reason to visit is the location. It's within a five minute walk of Tate Modern, yet just about distant enough to avoid much of a tourist deluge (unless they've learned the old trick of following the orange lamp posts from Southwark station). The White Hart is, then, a splendid place to relax after a hard day's art-gazing.
Otherwise, this is a typical Fuller's house, with superior pub food (additional restaurant seating upstairs) and the usual range of ales and wines.
Last updated November 2018. Images borrowed from the Fuller's website, as our own photographs were taken on a crappy, wet Tuesday when the place looked less gleamy.
