The White Hart at Fyfield

£26 to £40
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.

I can thoroughly recommend this as a place to go for a great dining experience. We went for the set lunch menu this time and didn’t find fault with any of the food, as it was superb.
Due to the COVID restrictions, all food was eaten outside, but every step had still been taken to still make this a pleasant experience what ever the weather had to offer. All seating was under cover and blankets on hand should anyone need them.

One of our first meals out after lockdown easing, and couldn't have chosen a better place to go. Thoughtful, seasonal food, superbly prepared, with excellent service. (It's a cold spring, so was glad of the blanket.) Will definitely go back.

On a very cold night we were still warm enough outside with heaters to enjoy a lovely fresh meal at the White Hart. Attentive and prompt service. But the tables are well enough spaced so you can talk intimately. A great evening... despite the limitations imposed by lockdown

Fabulous way to eat outdoors without freezing! Service was excellent and food very good. The pork was as delicious as ever and the steak was superb. The trofie with wild rocket and jersey royals didn’t quite hit the mark. Deserts superb.

Our evening out was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the White Hart made the occasion special for us. It was a cool evening for dining outside but we took advantage of the blankets to keep us warm on the outside and the fabulous food and wine warmed us on the inside. I enjoyed the slow roast belly of pork and my husband had a steak- everything cooked to perfection!

The staff were friendly and looked after us attentively without being intrusive.

A gem of a place.

A perfect meal in the orangery outside. The shelter was excellent, just what you need for early May in the UK.

Good gluten free options for coeliac diners as well!

Really great food and wine! The roast pork was especially delicious, with a lovely celeriac purée. My wife also commented that the beef was the most tender roast that she had ever had. It was my two year anniversary and they wrote a congratulations card and gave us a lovely table right in the centre of the tent.

The White Hart has always been our no.1 pub restaurant and they delivered another superb Sunday lunch with alfresco dining under clear marquees. The service was friendly and efficient and as always, the quality of their food was impeccable. Delicious cuisine, well presented.

We ate here last night and it was brilliant. Considering Covid restrictions, these guys have nailed it with lovely outdoor seating with heaters and to top it off they give you blankets & hot water bottles. The service was class and extremely attentive...they have made sure they have enough staff to make you feel like you are the only guest! Well done and thank you for making our first night out post lockdown such a great experience. Also the pizzas are so good.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere but still clearly very safe. Brilliantly set up to adhere to the COVID rules. Allows you to relax and enjoy the superb food and service. Not the cheapest meal in the area but extremely good value for the quality and experience you receive. Highly recommended.

It is a real pleasure to dine at the White Hart where the food is beautifully prepared and served, the service is excellent, and with Covid19 restrictions the owners have made outstanding preparations for outside eating in a safe and weather protected way.

First visit back to the White Hart, after the restrictions being lifted. A very well run and safe environment. We had to be outside but evening sun was welcome, blankets for when it got colder. Food was excellent as every and the friendly staff. Always a joy and can't wait to get back inside. Great job by Kay, Mark and the team

The owners have done a great job creating plenty of (covered) outdoor space for willing customers. I had forgotten that they do a “Wednesday Special” (which we ordered) which was starter and main course, plus either a free bottle of wine, or, a signed recipe book. Just £48 for two people.

The menu was fixed but we had no problem with a superb Gravadlax starter, followed by their legendary Pork Belly. (Plus the signed recipe book!)

Great restaurant. Great service. I fully recommend The White Hart!

We had appalling weather and so the staff should be applauded for the excellent service including blankets and hot water bottle!
Wind, rain and water under your feet ruined any ambience but we were delighted to be out for lunch and really enjoyed our meal. Humans 1, Covid 0.

Outstanding as ever. Will keep returning whilst pork and sticky toffee pudding are on the menu. Two outstanding offerings that are consistently mouth watering and not to be missed.
