A month or so ago, on the way to Snetterton, I stopped, because of its spacious car park, to have a drink at the “White Hart,” Great Yeldham, and on entering I discovered miraculous and exciting changes, for gone was the dull appearance. A drink in the welcoming atmosphere of the Oak Bar led to dinner in the oak-beamed dining hall, and I remarked, “Someone has copied Dick Gough’s effort when manager of the ‘Bull’ at Long Melford.”
Hall-way through dinner, there appeared the large genial figure of Dick Gough, and I was soon to learn that the improvements at the “White Hart” were by the master himself.
Dick Gough and his wife Mary, mine host and hostess of the “White Hart,” Great Yeldham, have modernised, by the personal touch, this three centuries-old inn without destroying any of its ancient heritage (Samuel Pepys endorsed the first application for a licence to sell beer).
Mine host, an ardent reader of Motor Sport for many years, offers you the opportunity to relax in happy, peaceful surroundings, to dine on beautifully cooked food by candlelight, and then to take coffee in the lounge by a blazing log fire, and all at reasonable prices.
