I’ve added another star because all the other pubs in the area are going all gentrification white middle class. White Hart is now ‘more pov’ looking so I won’t feel like such a big girl drinking here like the Sparrowfart.

I agree with the majority of reviews thus far. The White Hart is a definite on the Crystal Palace Triangle. Warm, Friendly and inviting. The beer garden is great, especially in the Summer (Although there are Heaters that actually WORK).
I agree the food is a bit pricey but if you buy certain meals, you def get your money’s worth. Compared to The Grape & Grain, Alma and the old Hollybush, the White Hart gets my vote every time!!!!
I love the Roasts on Sunday. Its the main reason I go to this pub. It has a great vibe and a small but good Ale range that changes all the time. I have been in after work during the week for a pint but its all about that Chicken Roast on a Sunday. The staff are friendly, but tend to serve the regulars first. The food during the week is ok, nothing to shout home about, just good pub food. If you want a nice relaxed drink then this is a great place. If you want to sit and stuff yourself with half a roast chicken on a sunday then this is your place!
It’s a pub but charges alot for food that is frankly crap. I had a veg burger but for 7.50 I’d expect more than two tiny bits of lettuce and a crappy deep fried from frozen pattie. also the Guinness tastes like the lines have never been cleaned. the bar lady was nice enough but very in efficient cold way. I think change of management has made this pub actually worse! The only reason that this pub managed 3 stars is because the postal order around the corner is so much worse.

Lovely pub. Great to drop into for a quick drink after dinner or a lazy afternoon with the papers (or indeed with the stash of Mills & Boon we found there the other day). Looking forward to the cider festival, if a little bit apprehensive...
I love the white hart for drinks and atmosphere. It is our local so we do go there quite a bit. They sometimes have live music, but not the kind that forces you to shout in the face of your companions. Although vie never been to it, they even have a stitch and bitch kitting night which sounds kooky but fun. I would recommend the white hart for a great few drinks, I just wish they would improve the food...
This is my most local local being a mere 10 mins from my doorstep, I think it was probably the first of the many pubs in Crystal Palace to upgrade from a locals only, old man’s boozer to something a bit more modern, crowds generally eclectic and atmosphere's usually pretty good.
Pros: Good selection of booze, well executed modern vintage style decor, lots of cosy seating indoors and fair size outside area.
Cons: quality and price of food can be hit and miss and the level of service goes from average to dreadful in my experience.
Nice pub in the Crystal Palace area. Good selection of foods, but you'd mainly come here for the great selection of beers and happy crowd. A safe bet to have a great night out.

Yup, i like this place. Try the sunday roast next time you're here. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Sounds good. I wish there would be a feature that allowed me to put this in my to-do list with a single click!.

First pub i've been to with a clothes shop in it!!
The White Hart is a cracking pub and, even though i don't know Crystal Palace that well, i'm assuming it's one of the finest boozers in the area.
What makes it so good then?
Beers - Cracking selection of real ale (including locally sourced wandle and junction + classics like doom bar). The also stock German wheat beer Franziskaner which is always nice to see!
Roast - My roast dinner yesterday was outrageously big (but still very, very tasty). If you're coming here for your sunday dinner, i'd recommend skipping breakfast.
Quiz Machine - It wasn't switched on, but i'm sure it works. You score extra points in my book if you have a quiz machine ;)
Staff - Everyone seemed very friendly and our meals arrived relatively quickly given that they were quite busy.
I'll be back for the monday night pub quiz!
This is a nice pub (part of a chain I think) with great decor and good range of drinks including guest ales. Food can be really good and inexpensive for pub grub. Nice beer garden and the benches at the front are great for watching the world pass by.
However... the problem is the size of the bar/number of staff to the number of patrons. At busy times it can take twenty mins to get served at the bar. I also dislike it when there are a number of people waiting to be served and one of the barmen starts emptying the dishwasher! I have lost count of the number of times we have given up and gone to one of the other pubs in the triangle.
This is my favourite local pub.
It's had its detractors, as service hasn't always been great but my experience has always been positive.
I'm not a beer expert but the wine choice isn't bad. And they had a cider festival on this summer too.
Food is good, not amazing, but not bad either.
But it's the atmosphere, and cosy nooks and crannies, that I really love. It's easy going and friendly. I've ended up having random conversations with 'neighbours' here!
And there are a selection of things on during the week. Plus a little beer garden to while away summer evenings.
Worth a visit.
Has more temporary staff than dixons. Nobody knows you and nobody cares. If it was not a chain it may have a pride of ownership but it’s not so I only give it 2 stars. Foods not bad but bad layout and often crammed.

At the top of the incredibly steep hill that is Belvedere Road but the ascent is definitely worth it.
The staff are friendly, the food is good and the selection of beers (both on tap and out of the fridge) are excellent, if you’re the type of person who likes to sample a new beer from a different country every tiem you visit the bar then you need to visit the White Heart (personally I’m a big fan of the Budwar Dark).
The Sunday dinners are very good if you can’t be bothered with all that cooking and washing up (I defy you finish the toad in the hole), and there’s a decent quiz on Monday night.
Lovely pub, family friendly and well situated in the heart of CP where decent pubs are making a slow but sure appearance.
Food portions are super-generous, and the garden has been nicely done up. Quirky furniture makes for a more interesting night out than your average local boozer, and there’s a good selection of continental beers, too.
The menu here was exactly the same as that in the Edinboro Castle & considering the taps all looked to have the same range of beverages at the end of them I think it’s safe to say they’re run by the same company.
Can’t really compare the service as visited on a Wednesday afternoon but the interior was much comfier & the decor much homlier. Whilst my burger could have done with a bit of a longer cook it couldn’t be faulted for size or value.
A good range of boardgames, some books & I think even dvds were in evidence for use or loan I suppose which further enhances the service provided.
