We love real ale and real cider. Just before our time, The White Hart achieved the accolade of the West Dorset Pub of the Year in 2019. We intend to preserve and maintain the highest standards for the provision of both real ale and real cider. Both are available in great variety in a twenty miles radius within Dorset and also South Somerset. There is a remarkable choice from which to choose.
SHERBORNE CASTLE WINE
We support multi-award-winning local wines and spirits because of their excellent quality.
SPECIAL RESERVE - WHITE
A blend of four grape varieties; Schonburger, Seyval, Bacchus & Reichensteiner. A crisp, dry, fruity wine. Excellent as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to food.
This wine was awarded a Gold Medal in The Taste of the West Awards 2021.
SHERBORNE CASTLE ROSÉ
Made from the Early Pinot & Seyval Blanc grapes. A delicate, juicy, summery aroma with a dry, fresh and clean finish. Lovely as a picnic wine, compliments fish and shellfish dishes.
This wine won a Silver Medal in the Taste of the West Awards 2022
Small batch premium quality Dorset-based distillery. International award winner. “This gin is ace in a martini and delicious with tonic in a very British way” John Tarode Master Chef Presenter.
BLACK COW VODKA
The world's first pure milk vodka made in West Dorset, near Beaminster, is distilled at the dairy farm of Jason Barber, bottled by hand and created from a 250-head dairy heard. Smooth and delicious.
Dorsets finest premium gin at 45% ABV with a twist of extra juniper and blood oranges - a truly original gentle and distinctive flavour.
SHERBORNE CASTLE BRANDY
Distilled from the Castle vineyard wines and barrel-aged for at least eight years. Probably the very best ‘non-cognac’ brandy we have tasted. A must for the connoisseur.
Aside from our range of real ales together with the lager and ciders, we offer a comprehensive range of non/low alcohol beers, lagers and cider all personally tested by us for taste.
How things have moved on from the original non-alcohol beer which was that ghastly ‘non-taste’ of Kaliber.
The present range tastes so good you will want to come back for another and still be able to drive home safely.
