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.

    My husband took me here for a birthday treat and from the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and warm. The food was delicious and excellent quality and a very reasonable price. We will definitely be returning. Thank you to the staff and chef for making it a perfect evening. The added touch of receiving a birthday card was much appreciated.

    Excellent service combined with amazing food and a fantastic selection of wines, we will be back. Nothing was too much trouble and they checked which foods I could have given a problem with vinegar. The team were lovely, the lamb melted in the mouth, everything was so tasty. we really enjoyed our evening. Thank you.

    Food was excellent. We went for Sunday dinner on Easter Sunday. Service was very slow. Arrived at 14:00 when table booked, table was not ready, waited a short time for the table (10 or 15 mins). Then it took a while to get our order in. Service averaged about 1 course an hour, we got our starters 15:00, mains at 15:45, deserts 16:45 . We we eventually out of there about 17:15, when we decided to go to the bar and pay the bill. Lovely, but way too slow. Luckily we had nothing else to do that day.

    Thank you for the feedback Simon. I am very pleased you enjoyed your food but I am so sorry you had a delay for your food - this is not usual, even on busy days. Please do get in touch with me personally so I can make things right. Best wishes, Kay (Owner).

    Food was excellent, as always. The pork belly remains a favourite, and garlic and potato soup got rave reviews. Service was sadly below average, which is unusual in our experience. The team appeared to be inexperienced and perhaps understaffed for a Saturday night.

    The food was fairly good, although my wife's lamb was sinewy & much too chewy. Our wine did not arrive until we had finished our "nibbles", despite asking for it twice & our water did not arrive until half way through dinner, despite requesting it three times. It will take a lot to make us return, which is a shame.

    We were welcomed on arrival and quickly seated at our booked table. Our waitress was very cheerful and chatty - which we like - and offered drinks when we were ready for them, rather than immediately after sitting down. Our food arrived promptly and the plates were hot, as they should be. Overall, a step up from other places we have been in Oxfordshire.

They were able to advise me well on allergens when I asked. The atmosphere was lovely, romantic and calm. Our meal was delicious, the food is sublime and I can’t fault the menu or the food we ate at all! Our new favourite spot for a special meal

    The good service was very good but… In the morning I was called by a lady at the venue telling me I should have called when making the reservation because I had dog, this would kindly be accommodated in an area that doesn’t usually allow dogs. I had called previously to ensure the venue allowed dogs and no such thing was mentioned. I’d also enquired about wheelchair accessibility and was informed the venue is accessible but on arrival we were informed this meant people carrying the wheelchair up steps to gain access.

    Fresh zingy starters, proper mains that don't need multiple extras to make up the meal and very imaginative and delicious desserts Cracking plates of food all round, 3 courses, couple of pints and coffee £65 per head The food as tasty as 1 star Michelin without the faff and the auto 12.5% service charge which we gladly added anyway Cannot recommend Mark's and the WH teams food and service highly enough Looking forward to trying the spring menu in a couple of weeks!

    As always the White Hart Sunday lunch is consistently good, my family enjoyed excellent roast beef with nice selection of vegetables, nice roast pork with apple and crackling. Monkfish was new to the menu and was excellent. Good choice of dessert which changes every time with the exception of their signature sticky toffee pudding. Service was excellent and special mention to front of house Will who excelled on the day ensuring we had a great dining experience.

    This is such a good restaurant, blending pub like atmosphere with fine dining eats! We started the evening with cocktails, shared the starters and then most of us had the miso coated monkfish. A great team looked after us and the chef came out at the end of service to ask what we thought of the meal. Worth a visit.

    We ate from the A la carte menu and as always we had a superb meal. The food was really flavoursome and beautifully presented, with the odd surprise. The prices are on the high side, but portions are healthy and the quality of the cooking is exceptional, so justifiable. The pub interior was nicely dressed and there was a good crowd, making for a lovely atmosphere.

    Delicious food, served by charming staff. Everything was perfect, the only problem was unnecessary piped music delivered loudly into my right ear by a speaker. I did request that it was moved away which was not possible, but I think the volume was reduced slightly. Such a shame to have this in an otherwise perfect venue.

    a first visit. Lovely staff, ambience and food. This is a regular from now on. Sadly, piped music was not only of poor choice but too loud. Bare floors and a cavernous hall does not help in these situations. If there had been no music this would be five stars across the board.
