The White Hart Inn Mersea – Case Study

A once derelict pub, The White Hart Inn on Mersea Island, reopened its doors to the public for the first time since 2013 on 15th June 2022.

The pub hotel has been brought back to life by Essex pub group Baker Hospitality; following a £1 million investment. It has undergone a major refurbishment and a partial rebuild so that it can once again welcome customers.

Work began in November 2021 and since then the venue has been completely transformed, now showcasing a bar and dining rooms with a vaulted ceiling and open kitchen, a lounge with an open fire and outdoor seating in the terraced garden.

The White Hart Inn is Baker Hospitality’s third site. They also operate Dedham’s The Sun Inn and Colchester bar and restaurant Church Street Tavern. Owner and Managing Director of the company Piers Baker said “it is great to have a pub that has been shut for over ten years open again filled with people”. He went on to speak about the pub’s relaunch saying that the opening week “went fantastically with lots of excellent feedback”.

Back in April, Servaclean installed the brand-new bar for the pub. Working alongside main contractor H&R Strood Contracts Ltd and Piers Baker, we were able to design, manufacture and install a bar that met the ideas of the pub and provide them with a quality, long-lasting bar that helps them serve customers as efficiently as possible. Project Coordinator from Servaclean, Neil Britton, took the lead on this project working closely with the clients and other companies to ensure that everything went to plan and we were able to provide the best service possible.
