Wonderful evening at The White Hart. The food was superb, I can recommend the goats cheese ravioli starter followed by the fillet of beef. The service was excellent, the staff were very attentive, understanding perfectly the balance of being just there when you need them but not interupting every minute. One of party was gluten free. Not only were dietary... More

The fixed price lunch menu here is good value with innovative food. You will have to book and the dining area is not at all intimate with very high ceilings and rather bland tables. This ambiance may change in the evening. Also it was slightly cooler than comfortable but the food more than made up for this. Certainly to be... More

Thank you for your 5 star review and compliments! The set lunch menu is excellent value and runs Tuesday to Friday lunchtimes. The White Hart is a converted 15th century Chantry, so oozes character and history. The main part of the restaurant is three storeys high with vaulted ceiling and chandeliers and is our most popular area to dine. However,... More

Have just come back from having the most amazing meal for our anniversary. We had a card on the table which was a lovely touch and a couple of truffles to finish. The food, the service and ambience was all fantastic.

We were looking for a restaurant for my partner's 40th birthday lunch and a return to The White Hart was the obvious choice. Our 4th visit and doubtless not our last. Quite by chance the choices made by both of us were all on the fixed menu which was a bargain at £20 for three courses and worth far more.... More

This is a place to visit for an amazing lunch on Sunday. The menu was not extensive but what was on offer was superior. I had the miso tuna with tempura prawas what a treat. The roast beef and all the trimmings was heavenly. When I thought it could not get any better the blueberry ice cream served with the... More

Thank you so much for the amazing review! We put a huge effort into the produce we grow and the dishes we create, so it is always lovely to hear our customers appreciate and enjoy our food. The White Hart is a beautiful 15th century Chantry and grade II listed, which means we are limited to make structural changes to... More

Perhaps getting lost in Fyfield for 20 seconds, was worth it. The village is lovely to drive through - albeit the sign pointing to the pub ought to be straightened. We went there for lunch with our team and it was an excellent choice. The food (Ravioli starter for me and pork as main course) were both delightful. The presentation... More

Thank you very much for your lovely comments! The set lunch menu is excellent value at £20 for 3 courses and there are always super dishes to choose from. The lemon and goat's cheese ravioli with pink peppercorns, basil and rapeseed oil dressing is one of my all time favourites! Our menu changes daily depending on what is fresh, seasonal... More

We came here on Sunday after our son's confirmation with all of the godparents and friends. We had the set such and all of the food was delicious. One of the starters and one of the main course choices were not available, but they offered an excellent alternative and we were all extremely happy with the food. Apparently all of... More

In the heart of the country, this restaurant/gastro pub is worth trekking to. Excellent food - tasty and good portions. Lovely atmosphere in this 15th century inn. Every one of the staff was charming. Took me an hour to get there and will be going again as it is so good. Not bad value either. 2 courses on Sunday lunch... More

Excellent food, most imaginatively presented and incredible value for money. Weekdays, three courses for £20. One of the most attractive wooden-beamed dining rooms and faultless service with just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. I most certainly will go back again and recommend it to friends without reservation.

Description
A mere seven miles from the centre of Oxford, in the picturesque village of Fyfield, The White Hart is the ultimate country pub and restaurant. It is a stunning former chantry house dating back to the 15th century, boasting many original features. With soaring eaves in the Great Hall and Minstrel's Gallery, a roaring log fire in winter and pretty terrace bursting with flowers and aromatic herbs in summer, The White Hart is not only cosily beautiful but offers a warm, village welcome too. With a passion for provenance, the kitchen grows much of the restaurant's fruit and vegetables in a large kitchen garden and also sources food from the very best local suppliers. Even bread, pasta and ice cream is homemade fresh on site. Frequently changing, the menus rely purely on what is fresh and available, ensuring food which delivers on every level. No wonder they hold 2 AA Rosettes for culinary excellence!
