The White Hart at Fyfield

British
The impressive accolades of Oxfordshire Restaurant of the Year and Best Gastropub, are richly deserved for the White Hart. Set in the picturesque village of Fyfield, The White Hart is the ultimate country pub and offers one of the finest foodie dining experiences in the county. Housed in a stunning 15th century chantry, customers can choose to eat under the soaring eaves of the great hall, up high in the minstrel's gallery, in the cosy bar by the fire or on the beautiful patio terrace.
With a passion for provenance, the kitchen sources food from the very best local suppliers and grow much of their own fruit and vegetables. Mark even fishes for his own crayfish and trout from the local reservoir! Cooking is modern British and menus change daily depending on what is fresh and seasonal - with the signature slow roasted pork belly, with foot long crackling, being a favourite.

A lovely meal, hot and tasty with attentive service. A card and candle plate to celebrate our daughters birthday with coffee, which was a nice touch. An enjoyable early evening meal.

The ambience, the friendly and cheerful staff, the delicious food, all were brilliant.
And despite the current situation (!) and the need for following guidance it all felt so normal. Which was a relief.
So we’ve booked again nearer Christmas ...

Always good food and service and the medieval building creates a great atmosphere. I'd advised that we were from 2 separate households - I received an email prior to our visit advising we would be put on a larger table. This worked perfectly.

Lovely country pub with very warm welcome on arrival, but sadly let down by the service from one of the team who completely forgot our coffee and gave a gruff response when we asked politely for the bill.
Food was generally excellent but pork sadly a little tough. My beef on the other hand was the best I’ve ever had !
Our table was by the door so we were getting slightly distracted by constant coming and going and door being left open Sand it was a little cold! But that’s hard to control and next time I would ask for different table.
Overall a lovely lunch with just one or two minor distractions but would not put us off giving it another go.

Without doubt one of the best meals we've had in months. Owain and his team have focused on curating a small, seasonal menu that's clearly been honed to perfection - we couldn't fault a morsel - and we didn't leave one, either! It looked absolutely stunning and tasted even better. The staff were first-class too - knowledgeable about wine, attentive and clearly loving playing a role in making this food experience so memorable. Couldn't fault it.

Fabulous meal and super friendly service. Always such a welcoming atmosphere at The White Hart and you just know whatever you choose you’re going to love it so you can be brave and experiment! Staff and guest safety is obviously a priority but it didn’t affect our enjoyment at all - in fact it made us feel more comfortable and relaxed knowing this was taken seriously. Can’t wait to go back!

We were delayed due to an accident on the motorway and we called to let the team know. They could not have been more helpful. We placed our order before the kitchen closed and had a wonderful lunch. Thanks Owen

The food was lovely, but a very limited selection available and the menu is not changed regularly. The chef was very willing to accommodate changes/substitutions to the dishes for us.
The ambiance and location were excellent and the staff could not have been more attentive
