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.

Amazing meal on Sunday lunchtime, delicious Roast beef which melted in our mouths! Puddings also amazing, sticky toffee pudding was to die for as was the cinnamon ice cream with the tarte tatin.
We will be back!

I ate here on a Sunday outside in the Orangery. Three courses are available, two for £27 and three for £30. I had duck/chicken liver parfait to start, slow roasted belly pork for mains, and an apple tarte tatin for pudding. First class ingredients, cooking and presentation: service was friendly and prompt. Meal complemented with a guest ale. Thoroughly enjoyable lunch - I was by myself but several parties also seemed to be having fun. Total bill was £44 with tip.

14/10, would make a detour to go again.

We always enjoy the food and great service at this local to us pub. Unfortunately, this time my wife and I were seated next to a loud table of 6 or 7 which impacted on the ambience. The waitress did see if there was another table available for us to move to but unluckily for us there was none.

We chose the set lunch menu which was not only very good value but also excellent. The food was beautifully presented and very well cooked. The chef obviously knows his/her stuff. The pub is a nice old building with low beams and yet still feels quite open and spacious. If I had to be critical, it perhaps lacks a little atmosphere. The staff are reasonably efficient whilst quite busy. It did feel though there was a lack of a warm welcome and friendliness, although that said, one of our servers was quite chatty and smiley. We would definitely go again and recommend it to others. Maybe unfair to judge on the strength of one visit and perhaps they will make small improvements with honest feedback.

Beautiful building in which to sit and eat. Service was swift, efficient and friendly. Excellent choice of cocktails and varied wine list. Sunday lunch was excellent, offered 2 meat options and 1 fish and 1 veggie. All four of us enjoyed our good quality and perfectly cooked food. The belly pork in particular was outstanding, flavoursome and tender.

The greeting was warm and efficient. The service was prompt and the staff very friendly and all the food was fresh and very good. There was a small party on the balcony so occasional bursts of loud noise, but it wasn’t a problem and was mostly quiet.

They had a good wine list too. We really enjoyed it.

Food and service superb unfortunately despite being one of the first guests to arrive we were sat on a first floor annex next to a ladies loo. If we went back we’d request a table on the ground floor in the main dining area or outside weather permitting… much more ambience and less ‘isolated’

What a superb job the owners have made of this pub/restaurant. Our first visit for 18 months for obvious reasons and we chose outdoor seating as the weather forecast was good. The pub is 40 miles from our home, but well worth the effort. Everything about the place is comfortable and friendly, and the food was excellent; the service impeccable. Can't wait for the next visit.

This is pub dining at it's very best! My wife and I were immensely impressed with the sophistication of the dishes served; creative and delicious without being fussy. Both presentation and service were excellent. The wine list is well chosen, I selected a 2015 Rioja Reserva by a good maker that we thoroughly enjoyed, and really good value. Ambience is Old World charm, very relaxing, not stuffy. I can't remember a better pub dining experience.
