My wife and I managed a day off work without kids, so were doing a spot of shopping in nearby Abingdon and decided to grab some lunch. Checked on Tripadvisor and the the White Hart looked reasonably close and had great reviews. We both had one of the best value meals we have ever had. £20 each for 3 courses... More

Sunday lunch with children. Slightly frosty reception from (senior?) bar person but other staff were very charming. Short but well balanced menu. Starters were very pretty. I felt the smoke on the smoked salmon dish a little too strong. Liver parfait good. Roast rib eye of beef excellent quality extra gravy requested and given Spiced monkfish good Vegetables ok Kids...

A first rate dining experience, apart from the "dauphinois" potatoes that weren't. Nice ambience. Interesting history of chantry building. Superb desserts

This is a lovely pub. Great beers, delicious wine list. Our lunch was scrumptious. This restaurant lives up to its reputation and is well worth a visit.

My father in law to be has just treated us to dinner at The White Hart and we could not fault it. Service was perfect and food was beyond expectations and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. We would definitely return.

A very good set lunch selected from a good range of options. Lovely room with a medieval hammer beam ceiling to eat lunch in. Nicely busy and good service. The dishes we chose were all well prepared and full of flavour.

This is one of the best restaurants we have visited. The service was attentive and subdued, the food was top notch and the atmosphere calm and cosy. We had been shopping nearby and spontaneously decided to try a pub in the local area. We had heard about a place called the white something and made our way to the little... More

Having expected a fantastic dinner following reviews on TripAdvisor, I was disappointed with the quality of the meal when attending with a large (12) family group. Portion sizes were questionable and the cheese and biscuits was an absolute joke (especially incurring the extra charge on the fixed price menu). Starters were cold and main meals missed various items (Yorkshire puddings,... More

Thank you for your feedback. However, we were quite surprised to read the content of your review because the gentleman who paid the bill at the end complimented us on what a lovely meal and experience everyone had had. My restaurant supervisor took care of your party and I have never known another member of staff care so much about... More

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!
