General History

The White Hart is the only Inn, of many, in Yetminster to have survived until today. Eight pubs were listed in the Ale House Recognisances held at Sherborne on the 5th September 1753 (the equivalent of our current licensing process); The 5 Bells, Half Moon, Flower Deluce, New Inn, Bell, Swan and Blackimores Head. It stands opposite an ancient thoroughfare, formerly known as Church Lane, at the lower end of which was a public well. Beside that, it is believed, stood the stocks. The Court house only being a couple of houses up.
