The White Harte
22456 Ventura Boulevard, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, 818.224.3822
On the left hand side coming from Los Angeles, Cafe Bellisimo is the first store passed it. Wrought iron front eating court is your key (and, of course, the red British phone box) but it’s easy to miss. Open 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Sister to The Fox and Hounds in Sherman Oaks, The White Harte has more of a bar feel. Pleasant and friendly bar staff. Diverse menu served all day; take-out menu, too. Good selection of draught beers plus two ciders. Bar full of friendly locals even at three on a Tuesday afternoon. Three plasma screens tuned to football (yeah, yeah, soccer) over the bar and a larger plasma in the back room. Good, welcoming atmosphere.
Two dart boards: one to the left as you come in the door, a second with better lighting in the rock walled room on the left beyond the bar.
