A bit of history

Kelly’s directory for Nottinghamshire of 1844 lists nine public houses in West Stockwith. There are no records of the White Hart prior to this date but it may have been one of the two beer/ale houses listed in 1832.

The public houses named were….

The Black Swan 

The Friendship Inn

The Hope and Anchor

The Newcastle Arms

The Ship Inn

The Vine

The White Swan

The White Hart Inn

The Crown Tavern …… re-named the Waterfront Inn in the late 1980s/early 1990s.

Of the above list only the White Hart Inn and the re-named Crown ( Waterfront Inn )  remain open and serving regulars and visitors alike.
