Award-winning food in a beautiful setting
The White Hart is an award-winning independent restaurant and pub, set in a magnificent Grade II listed Chantry House near Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Our focus is fresh, seasonal and locally sourced dining in a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
Join us to savour new British flavours or simply unwind with a glass of wine by the fire.
A foodie gem in the heart of Oxfordshire.
Our passion is to create the best in Modern British Dining, sourced mainly from local suppliers and our kitchen gardens. This ensures food is fresh and keeps our carbon footprint low.
Located in the pretty village of Fyfield, the lovingly restored 15th century hostelry is an unforgettable setting - whether you dine inside under vaulted ceilings or out in our garden.
The White Hart has held two rosettes for culinary excellence for thirteen years running and the quality of ingredients is at the heart of our ethos.
Our chef Mark and his highly skilled team prepare all of the dishes 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. Or pop by for one of our regular in-house events, such as our popular Wednesday Dinner Club and Cocktail Hour.
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. From the vaulted ceiling to the flagstone floors, the unique space is steeped in history.
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.
