Welcome to www.worthingpubs.com, dedicated to researching the history of our local pubs.

This study is ongoing and we welcome contributions, stories, pictures etc that will expand our knowledge and bring back memories of times past.

Up until 2013, this was the  only known surviving picture of the White Hart, conveniently positioned next to a fish & chip shop. It was situated at the north end of New Street. The site was rebuilt and is now a modern retail unit. No trace of the original building remains.




Yes, that is Kenny Ball from Kenny Ball and the Jazzmen, pictured here with Ken and Joyce Frampton, the Landlord and Landlady.

Below, two pictures of the 'Inland Revenue Boys' enjoying a pint or two. Are you there, can you name anyone? (sorry no prize, just happy memories)

Special thanks to David Frampton for these pictures.


On October 2013, we received a kind donation of 23 photographs from a private collection by Derek Reeves, featuring the inside of the pub and the people who frequented it.
