REOPENING 3rd DECEMBER
We are very excited to be reopening on Thursday 3rd December. After the Tier 2 announcement, there are some big changes we have had to make but we are ready for them and have adapted yet again!
Indoor: Only single households or support bubbles are allowed to book indoors now.
Outdoor: Rule of 6. To make our winter orangery an "outdoor area" for the purposes of Covid-safety, we are rolling up 2 of the sides to allow proper ventilation. We can then host groups of up to 6 from mixed households, whilst maintaining social distancing. Although we are excited that friends can meet for a festive get together, this does mean that the orangery is going to be colder than we had originally planned. BUT, we think people would rather meet up safely and wrap up warm than not at all. So, bring your coat and a blanket and we will supply heaters, mulled wine, a range of hot cocktails, warming food (see a sample menu here) and the usual White Hart sparkle!
Book Now And Have Something To Look Forward To...
We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kay, Mark and Team x
Since re-opening, we have operated above and beyond the government guidelines and have stood out as one of the safest places to enjoy a meal out. The feedback we have received from guests, in terms of safety, food and service has been 5 star and makes us very proud of our amazing team! We have worked hard to put in place systems to ensure you feel safe and comfortable, so please have a look at what we are doing to keep you safe here. Whilst things may look a little different, the White Hart magic is still there!
A foodie gem the heart of Oxfordshire, offering relaxed nibbles, pizzas or award winning a la carte.
Located in the pretty village of Fyfield, the lovingly restored 15th century hostelry is an unforgettable setting - whether you dine inside or in our garden, where our terrace pergolas provide a relaxed setting for food and drinks.
Our passion is to create the best in Modern British Dining sourced from local suppliers and our kitchen gardens. This ensures food is fresh and keeps our carbon footprint low.
The White Hart has held two rosettes for culinary excellence for fifteen years running and the quality of ingredients is at the heart of our ethos.
Mark and his highly skilled team of chefs prepare all of the dishes fresh on the premises everyday, including bread, pasta, ice cream and even the horseradish sauce for Sunday roasts. We aim to delight the eyes and excite the palate with delicious food.
FUNCTIONS & EVENTS
From private dining, to weddings and in-house events
Owing to our unique layout, we cater for a variety of functions, from intimate dinner parties to weddings, larger celebrations, wakes and business meetings. Our pizza oven is also available to hire for private functions.
A family-run business
Since arriving at the White Hart in 2005, Mark and Kay Chandler have restored this beautiful hostelry to its 15th century former glory. The space is steeped in history, yet a modern, informal vibe prevails. As a family-run business, everything here is done with care, thought and passion.
OUR MENUS - FRESH, SEASONAL, LOCAL.
We are passionate about provenance. Our kitchen garden provides wonderful produce picked just hours before arriving on your plate. Local woodlands and hedgerows also offer seasonal delights, from wild garlic and mushrooms, to blackberries and elderflowers.
“A Foodies' Paradise... one of my favourite places to eat"
Denise Barkley, The Oxford Times
“One of the most memorable meals in recent history. Every dish was faultless... Not only is Mark Chandler’s food seasonal to an extreme, the ingredients positively radiate with fresh picked taste and texture.”
Katherine MacAlister, Oxford Mail
"Wow! Without a doubt the best food I have had in Oxon. The extra attention to detail makes the visit worthwhile. Excellent service too."
