TAKE TWO – AS HART HOUSE REOPENS

With renovations now complete, the Hart House bar and restaurant has finally opened to the public, just in time for the Christmas rush. If you find yourself a bit confused don’t worry, you’re not alone. Hart House has kept the name of the previous business that did indeed close down back in June 2019 after only a year of business.

The new version of Hart House picks up where one of its predecessors left off, with plans for an outside pergola area including extended use into the evening. This was first seen on plans for “The Village at Fleet” pub, which was the least successful of the occupants, backing out of the project before it even began.

Hart House (version two), features a new logo and a fresh interior with it’s self-styled description of a “stylish bar/restaurant, serving fresh, seasonal food.” Deb Shaw, who was invited to sample two free courses on their soft opening night on Tuesday said: “The new layout is great, nice atmosphere and food was good. We had Potted Salmon and Spiced Tacos to start, Steak for main and a Portobello Punch cocktail. Will be back to check out the garden next time!”, “They’ve done away with the separate coffee area and opened it all up to be more pub-like”.

The current menus are clearly aiming for a higher end restaurant feel, with prices that are above the usual pub grub standard, but the food shown certainly looks appetising and well presented.

Only time will tell if Hart House version two will succeed where others have failed. Have you visited the new venue yet? Let us know what you think!
