The following information from the 1970s was kindly provided by Pete Yeates:
Graham & Louise Adams (were at the White Hart for some 14 years) Graham now deceased.
Roger Seward (Manager for 11 months, aftwards taking on the Talbot Inn at Keynsham after it was refurbished with the Restaurant being added) Roger now deceased – his last pub was the Spreadeagle on the Stourhead estate.
John Williams (Trained at the White Hart under Roger Seward. Afterwards moving to the Rose & Crown at Limpley Stoke, the Hop Pole at Limpley Stoke and eventually the Inn at Freshford) After John Williams left the White Hart, the managers were Les & Kerry (surnames unknown) who eventually left to take over the Griffin at Monmouth Street in Bath. ( I worked in an office opposite the Griffin, finding them by accident!)
Since John Williams, there have been various managers, none of which staying for more than a few years.
