Nowhere near as good as a couple of years ago.....
We hadn't been to Il Romana for probably around two years, for various reasons....after ringing and booking a table I was assured by the sound of a familiar voice that all was the same. I'm not sure if we caught a bad night, but Il Romana used to have a great atmosphere, varied menu, great service, and very good food indeed, with a mix of European/italian/English dishes
. Given it was 8pm on a Saturday, there were two other couples in the restaurant, and we were given a very limited midweek menu. We asked for the al la Carte menu, but were told by the barman that the menu was virtually the same. We ordered from this menu in the end, and ordered prawns, panfried in garlic butter - imagining large, succulent prawns, fried in garlic butter. In reality, the prawns were no bigger than my partners thumbnail - and portion probably a couple of tablespoons, with very little garlick tast, presented with a couple of lettuce leaves, pepper rings and a grape....we were so dissappointed. Our main courses were better - my partner had sirloin steak @ 10.95 which was about right, but my sea bass fillets @ 17.95, although cooked well, were really not worth the money. They were cooked with sunblush tomatoes, in butter, and served with average pub veg in side dishes, and were very small - not how I recall Il Romana from times past. This was meant to be a special meal for a romantic occasion and I have to say, we felt very let down. There was no reason to complain as what we ate was cooked well, and the lady serving was very polite and professional, but, the quality of food was poor - two starters and two mains, for 47....the starters I would not expect even in a budget pub in terms of quality and display of the ingredients. It is such a shame as we have bought friends and business acquaintances here in the past, but could not do so based on this experience.

Back on track
Since the Landlord Steve has made his return to the pub in July it trully has been brought back to its original status, with the derbyshire food awards. New Ala Carte Menus available with a cheaper mid week alternative. Sunday lunches are terrific, but sometimes very busy. Makesure you book if you want a brilliant dining experience.

county pub come back!!!
I've been going to this pub for many years, seen many new owners, and many thing change over the years,
The food is still good, could do with a bit more of a country feel to it, bar meals and good old chips cobs, ideal for walkers and horses riders.
Flower beds around the pub would make a big differance if they had a good weeding but over all it's still worth a visit,
Ideal for holding local events, already has a vintage car night first Tuesday in the month :-),
Good bridleways for horse riders, also has it's own mountain block in the car park.....

Anne and I moved to Sutton just over a year ago and enjoy eating out and have tried several restaurants in the area,some good some okey!
From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left the experience was 10/10.
Fantastic food and service one of the best without question and the attention to detail was simply of the highest quality.
Well done!

Excellent, 5*+
We went to the White Hart/La Romana after hearing about it from a number of friends who had recently visited. We live in Derby so it was a bit of a drive, but absolutely worth it. Im not sure what Mr Peter Renolds is talking about. We honestly couldnt complain about a single aspect. The bar and restaurant staff were great all night, really friendly, I suppose you get out what you put in... And it was a nice suprise to learn that the new owners, owned a previous favourite, the bulls head in belper. Food was excellent, atmosphere great. With the planning of the restaurant it was easy to talk with the people sat near by and overall it was a great decision to visit - all round. Well done white hart/la romana!!

Christmas Lunch
We booked a late lunch and were a little aprehensive. The Food was very nice and well presented, good value for money. The service was a little reserved but they were friendly enough.

A fantastic job has been done on the refurbishment. We had a lunchtime meal and will be going back for dinner one night.

Paolo is brill. Steve a bit cold.
Paolo and his food are brilliant. Steve is a bit cold and needs to interact a bit more. More choice of beer would improve things alot.

Close Friend
Great Place
Neil, the Landlord, is very kind, he like to come and have a chat with us!

The only bad thing with The White Hart, is Angie, Neils wife, she is very ignorant!

Excellent Refurbed Pub
This place just gets better and better - the luchtime snacks - if you can call them that - are exceptional - they kill you with kindness...and you can even tie up your horse outside whilst you drop in for a drink
