Dear Customers

It is with a mixture of happiness and sadness that as of this Friday, 31st July 2020, we will be leaving and passing over the care of the White Hart – Wimbish to Luke and Dionne.

We would like to say a heartfelt farewell and thank you all for your support, love, and kindness over the last 15 years.  As you know we said farewell before, but circumstances changed, and we stayed on a little longer. It is now finally time for us to head off to Europe to follow our dreams and pass the White Hart over to a new family to look after.

Luke, Dionne and their two girls; Senna and Isla are extremely excited to become a part of the Wimbish community.  Luke has served in the army for 5 years and felt now was the right time to follow the passion he’s had since childhood for cooking. Alongside Dionne who has previously managed a hotel, they are sure to succeed at creating the family restaurant with a community feel that they have always dreamt of and we want to be the first to wish them every success.

We have great memories of all of you and the ones we lost along the way and we wish you all a safe, healthy, and happy life.

Much love,
Leigh & Philip Todd
Custodians of the White Hart 2005 – 2020


PS Luke and Dionne will close for couple of weeks but plan to be open very soon - watch this space!
