A celebration of food and drink will take place at a North Somerset pub later this year – and tickets have just gone on sale.

The White Hart, in Weston-in-Gordano, will host a festival full of West Country ciders and beers, and speciality gins and prosecco.

The event, which will have live music, is called the White Hart Fest.

Manager Myles Angell said: “Our wonderful all-weather garden complete with its fantastic, cosy tepee, which has a central fire pit, will be the backdrop for this fabulous, fun event.

“Our fest includes a cider bar with lots of different ciders, live music on both days from various well-established, different bands and acoustic performances too, as well as a photo prop area to add to the fun of it all.

“During the weekend, we will have three bars open including a prosecco one, a speciality gin bar and a wine stall.

“Food-wise we’ll be serving up hot dogs and a hog roast.

“Our famous, authentic open-air pizzeria will be open too, serving delicious, traditional Italian pizzas.”

The pub’s new tap room will be warmed with a wood burner, and there will be a large selection of South West beers available for people to try.

The team will also have a bus serving fresh coffee on site.

Throughout the festival, a bus will be running free of charge to and from the pub, in Clevedon Road, and to its sister restaurant, Venga in High Street, Portishead.

It will also run to and from Clevedon to allow people to sample the alcohol without worrying about how to get home.

Chris and Mike Yeatman took over the White Hart in 2015, following a two-year closure and have invested in the business.

Chris said earlier this year: “We took the site on as a wreck in 2015 and have since invested significantly in the building and the business and have now created a ‘destination’ or ‘go-to’ food pub.”

The White Hart Fest will take place from October 19-20.

Tickets, priced £10, can be bought from the pub or Venga, or from with a small transaction fee.
