A word from The White Hart at Fyfield
A mere seven miles from the centre of Oxford, The White Hart is nonetheless the ultimate country pub. In a former chantry house dating back to the 15th century, its setting – in the picturesque village of Fyfield - is stunning. With its soaring Great Hall and intimate Minstrel’s Gallery, roaring log fire and pretty terrace bursting with aromatic herbs, The White Hart is not only cosily beautiful but offers a warm, village welcome too. With a passion for provenance, the kitchen not only sources food from the very best suppliers but grows much of the fruit and vegetables used on site while even bread, pasta and ice cream is handmade fresh on site. Frequently changing, the menus rely purely on what is fresh and available, ensuring food which delivers above and beyond typical pub grub. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Oxfordhshire is not short of pubs which do meals. Some of them are very good but few can match the White Hart for quality, service and value. The fairly short menu (always a good sign in my book) offers both the familiar and the unusual. Whatever you choose it will be well cooked and beautifully presented. Prices are similar to those in the area but represent much better value. The service is always relaxed and welcoming."

  • "We got lost on the way and the staff called us to make sure we were on our way .When we arrived we were served immediately by a very smiling lady who made us feel very welcome .I am not a meat person but I thought I would try the Sunday roast which was delicious . I highly recommend this place which has the most delightful garden area and is in a lovely little village outside Oxford plus the food was traditional but inventive too with lots of flavours ! we shall come back and this time we will make sure we do not get lost in Abingdon !"

  • "Second visit to the White Hart. Set in a nice looking village but easy to find and with good parking. Seems reasonably popular although not packed. Good lunch menu at a reasonable price. Friendly staff. Have to drive to get there so didn't try out the wine list."

  • "I occasionally meet a friend for lunch and we recently discovered the White Hart as it is equidistant from our two homes. Once again this week it proved a good choice. Both courses were well cooked and presented despite the narwhale piece of cracking on my belly pork almost not making it to the table. And the slated caramel ice-cream was a dream, especially for my guest who managed to consume some of mine with his meringue confection. The wine was served at a perfect temperature and the tap water had no taste of chlorine common to much Thames Water product. The staff were as quietly efficient and attentive as usual and our table in the 'Bishop's Parlour' was perfect. In fact I couldn't fault anything"

  • "A really lovely restaurant. Service was fabulous and the food was amazing, with good sized portions. Definitely value for money. No complaints to make. Looking forward to visiting again soon."

  • "The food here is outstanding, albeit the menu is a little confusion, and prices are at the high end for what it is. We were served up on the balcony, all on our own, which is the place to be, if the staff remember you are there! It really niggles when sides are overpriced, and four half slices of bread at £3 is just having a laugh. Shame these aspects detract from a great chef at work."

  • "Have eaten here often. As a pub it is good. It has great character, pretty good food (for a pub), casual Aussie bar staff and you put up with the outdoor gents. But the prices are very high indeed - even by London restaurant standards. A main course with a couple of sides (which you'll need) can easily be £25. So it's beginning to feel like its prices have become too ambitious for the pub that it is. It's a shame because its a good pub. But at these prices there's a lot better on offer elsewhere and they have better loos."

  • "Over the period of 3 years have now eaten at the White Hart four times and it just continues to excel. Given there was six of us we tried a variety of dishes and the standard of cooking and presentation was excellent. Also a good choice of local draught beers that are also well kept."

  • "we have been to the white hart before and once again we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and service very good. Nice friendly ambiance not stuffy or pretentious. Not a cheap option but great for a special occasion."

  • "Found this place last year. Wanted somewhere to meet friends who live in Lemington and this was about half way for us. Had a very good meal, the beer is well presented and were more than eager to meet up again at the white Hart,"
    dined on 21/02/2013
  • "Booked at very short notice for an early meal for 3. From the moment we arrived we were treated wonderfully - an excellent balance between privacy and attention followed throughout the evening. The starters were exceptional and the main meals equally so; of particular note was the presentation - first class. The local ale from the Loose Cannon Brewery in Abingdon was excellent. All in all, a great evening at a wonderful restaurant."

  • "Greeted by the warmth of a wood burning stove and the impressive high ceilings and exposed old timber, the White Hart set up the occasion for this business lunch with a long-standing client. In the past, we were used to venues in Canary Wharf, but I took a gamble on something out in the country. The venue and ambience were equally matched by the food with a set lunch menu offering sufficient choice. The starter of Fowey mussels on Cheddar Valley toast was simply mouthwatering and the main of wild mushroom suet pudding was a great surprise and delicious. We both felt comfortable having local beer to accompany, although the wine list looked impressive, too."
