2. A C17 timber-framed and plastered building, probably built on an L-shaped plan but with many C18 and later alterations and additions. The original part is the block at the north end with a west front effectively closing the vista along Rayne Street. An C18 gault brick wing, now painted, extends east with a front to Coggeshall Road and a farther late C18 or early C19 white gault brick wing extends at the east end. 2 storeys and cellars. The west front now has sham timber-framing on the exterior. 4 window range, double-hung sashes with glazing bars, in flush cased frames with moulded architraves. (The 1st storey windows have glazing bars in the upper sashes only.) The window ranges on either side of a central entrance way are 3-light bays rising through 2 storeys. The centre part, between the bays rises to a modillioned pediment with a late C19 or early C20 tiled inn sign. Originally an elliptical headed carriageway opened into a courtyard at the rear, now it has a recessed C20 doorway within the archway.

The C18 wing on the south side has 4 window range, double-hung sashes with glazing bars in plain reveals. The wing at the east end has 5 window range, with a higher storey heights (this contains the dining room), double-hung sashes with glazing bars, the 1st storey windows have stucco architraves, alternate windows (3) have cornices on console brackets. The ground storey windows have semi-circular heads and plain reveals. A stucco band runs between the storeys and there is a brick plinth. Roofs slate. The interior of the main block has exposed timber- framing and ceiling beams. RCHM(56).

The White Hart Hotel and No 2 form a group with Nos 2 to 8 (even) Rayne Road and Nos 1, 3, 9 and 11 Bank Street, Braintree.
