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.

Lovely place on the way to Cotswolds to stop for a lunch. Excellent prices for very good quality food, unfortunately the service is slow.

Attentive, friendly and helpful staff. We wanted to eat everything on the menu and the food we chose was delicious. I’ve given it 4 stars as my only slight criticism is that the bowl was so hot, my monkfish continued to cook but it was still delicious. The choice of wines was very good and the outside seating very skilfully laid out. My husband and I felt relaxed and safe and will definitely return soon to taste some of the other food on offer.

My friend and I selected the Pork main followed by a refreshing vanilla mousse with fresh fruit and strawberry ice cream. Both dishes were from the set menu options and for the outstanding quality of food and presentation gave us great value for money. The ambience was relaxed and the service was friendly and efficient. A most enjoyable experience, I will be back.

Superb as always. The stuffed courgette flower has been picked straight from the kitchen garden that morning - doesn’t get much fresher than that! The monkfish was also incredible (I had to order bread to mop up every drop of sauce - sorry!!!). Highly recommended 😁

I am a regular diner so always know I am in for a treat food wise. I chose ( because it was a hot and sunny day), the heirloom tomato starter, the stuffed courgette flower main course and the elderflower creme brûlée. I felt like licking the plates , it was that good.

It has been a long time since we visited the White Hart as I have been shielding. The garden was beautiful and we had a lovely table in the shade next to the stag. The food was wonderful and the staff are always very friendly and attentive. A superb lunch date with my husband!

We arrived to a warm welcome and taken straight to our table outside. All the staff were pleasant and helpful, providing an excellent service. Each course was excellent and the time between each course was just right. Overall an excellent meal in s nice atmosphere, the extra touch of a birthday card was lovely. We will certainly be back again, definitely the place to go for that special meal.

This was my first meal in a proper restaurant since February last year so I was a little apprehensive. I was impressed with the COVID measures. All the staff were masked and customers were asked to keep masks on when moving through the restaurant. It felt about as safe as any restaurant could be at the moment. There was plenty of space between tables. We were seated on the terrace in a quiet corner away from the music (much appreciated as I have hearing difficulties) and in the shade. The food was wonderful as always. I had the belly pork which is one of my favourites. No one does it better. The meat just melts in your mouth and the crackling is to die for. The staff were suitably attentive but didn’t rush us. It was a delightful afternoon. Now to persuade my husband to come out for lunch…

Excellent lunch for two courtesy of my children for Father’s Day. So even better value for money! Loved lunch here. Wonderful duck liver parfait, pork belly and sticky toffee pudding! Washed down with a glass of Taitinger to start, and a glass of Primitivo with the pork. Delightful. Will come again for sure.

We had lunch in the pretty garden, asked to have the music changed as the same loud Oasis track was going round and they sorted it out straight away. The belly pork was utterly delicious and also the roasted monkfish equally good. The desserts were scrumptious, sticky toffee pudding and creme brulee. First visit here on route to Oxfordshire attraction and can highly recommend. Set lunch great value.

Wednesday night supper club, which is very good value, and this week included two favourites: chicken and duck liver parfait and the slow cooked pork with the very crispy and long crackling. All delicious. Service was excellent - friendly and prompt but not overly so - and it was a treat to sit outside in the evening sunshine

The White Hart has a pleasant ambience inside although many people sat outside as it was a sunny evening. The jazz music wasn’t very soothing but many may enjoy it? The staff were very welcoming & ready to help in any way they could. Presentation of the food was excellent, and it was all tasty if not a bit pricey. We would have liked a few more mains choices.

We’ve been here many times before, and as always, the food was absolutely superb. Cannot fault it and tasted amazing. Portions are very generous as well so it’s not like a lot of places where you still feel hungry on the way home.

My only fault, which was unique to this visit was that our table was in the area upstairs that contains a few extra tables for when it’s busy. It feels isolated from the rest of the restaurant and there’s little to no atmosphere, it’s very quiet. The decor, while fitting with the history of the room, doesn’t really fit with the rest of the restaurant, which again, has always been one of its best points and why we return again and again.

I don’t want to make this sound like a complaint as we enjoyed our visit and will no doubt return, I just feel that area upstairs could be improved.

We have come to expect high standards at the White Hart, and the great thing is we are never disappointed. The new outside area is well laid out and comfortable, the full menu is served out there and maintains its high quality, and the staff are always friendly. Entirely appropriate to have chosen it for a family celebration.

Excellent food, the puddings were truly outstanding. Lovely quiet and relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting. The service was a little relaxed and not quite as quick as I would have liked but it’s not a complaint at all.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and it is superb value for money.
