The White Hart is believed to probably date back to around 1771, it was a well established inn with a thatched main building, good stabling, other outhouses, a large garden and yard. With the High Street being one of the main routes to Salisbury and turnpike, it resulted in Burbage becoming a coaching stop and, by the end of the 18th century boasted 3 prosperous coaching inns. In the late 1800’s The White Hart was also very well known for brewing its own beers.
Sadly, in 1928 there was a fire that destroyed the original building and a lot had to be rebuilt to make it the pub that it is today.
The high street was also the main route from Marlborough to Andover, however the bypass was built in 1991 to re-direct the traffic away from the village.
In its hey day, Burbage boasted five pubs in total in our little village, over the years the others have shut, and the White Hart is the last remaining in this popular, sought after village which lies within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
It was once part of a pub chain but was bought as a freehouse in the early 2000’s and remains so to this day.
The White Hart is a great pub and a genuine part of the Burbage community and could not be more welcoming
