The Hotel

The White Hart is in the perfect location situated at the centre of this bustling market town with fine views over the River Witham and the nearby 700 year old “Boston Stump”. This delightful former coaching inn has been sensitively refurbished and our Courtyard Bar, Eatery & Coffee House provides the perfect spot for enjoying an informal brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

If you prefer a more formal setting then the Riverside restaurant is the ideal place to sit back and enjoy some of the finest food found in the area.
