Our Pub

1b782f210fe28cbe194d26d4475fab23One of the oldest pubs in St Albans, the White Hart Tap is situated a short walk from the town centre and ten minutes from St Albans mainline station.

We are a friendly local pub which attracts an eclectic mix of people creating a pleasant and fun atmosphere.                                      

In summer the large garden has plenty of space & tables to enjoy a meal from the lunchtime or evening menu.

In the winter the woodburning fire creates a warm and cosy place to enjoy a glass of mulled wine together with the pub cat Paddy who can be seen stretched out in front of it.

We have a wide range of food & drink available which is available to view on this site.

We are recommended in the CAMRA Pub Guide (and featured on the front cover of the front copy of the 2014 edition) and won ‘Best Pub in St Albans’ at the first ever St. Albans food & drink festival

    WHT is indeed a very special place, probably the only pub (in the world) where live piano music is played on a sloping ironing board. The landlord seems to have a passion and amazing talent in mastering the most challenging engineering projects.

    Went to the WHT for Sunday lunch yesterday and all five of us (some of whom are very picky about eating out) thought it was excellent. Not only was the food delicious – between us, we had the roast beef, roast chicken and lamb cutlets with Dauphinoise potatoes to die for – but the service was personal, efficient and cheerfully given. One member of our party arrived and ordered later than us but all the food arrived at the table at the same time and without a noticeable delay. Despite being busy, the staff also took time to make a friend’s birthday very special. I’ll definitely be taking visitors there again.
    And, by the way, the homemade Scotch eggs are fabulous!
