Parties and Celebrations

Whether you want a dinner party for 8 in our minstrel’s gallery or a birthday party of 30 in our Chantry Room, we can organise and host your function. For parties of 8 or more, we may offer you a seasonal party menu (and possibly require a pre-order depending on the number of guests and the day you are joining us) to ensure that we deliver the best possible service and quality to our guests.

Business Meetings

We have a number of private rooms which can be hired for business meetings; the Minstrel’s Gallery can seat up to 14; the Chantry Room can seat up to 30; and the Cellar Room can seat up to 10. The cost is: Full day £120; Half day £90, plus £9 per person. This price includes, tea, coffee, biscuits and the use of a flip chart, paper and pens. Prices are conditional on the group having lunch or dinner. Wireless internet access is available.


Dealing with the loss of a loved one and organising a funeral reception can be a difficult time. At the White Hart, we understand this and aim to make the planning as easy and stress free as possible for you. Situated on the outskirts of Oxford, the White Hart is easily accessible from all major transport routes and has a large complimentary car park.

We can offer different styles of reception and can help you choose the menu option to suit your requirements, thinking about the time of the service and the distance guests have to travel. An afternoon tea may suffice or you may want a more substantial buffet or possibly a more informal canape reception, or a sit down lunch. Please see our information pack and sample menus.


We would be delighted to host your wedding reception, whether it is a small intimate gathering in our Monk’s Room or a larger party in the Great Hall (maximum number of guests for a sit down meal is 62). We do not have a formal wedding pack because we believe that each wedding is individual and should be designed to suit your requirements. However, here is a sample wedding costing to give you an idea:

Wedding Breakfast for 60 guests. Cost of £6,500, which includes:
Champagne and cocktails on arrival
Selection of 4 canapés
Three course meal, including tea and coffee
Several glasses of wine with the meal
Champagne toast with speeches
Exclusive use of the venue for the whole day and evening
From the minute you first enquire, to the moment you leave, Kay and her charming team will ensure that you have a fantastic stress-free day, which you will remember happily for the rest of your lives.

“Absolutely Exceptional! Held my Wedding here and it was Perfect!…The food they served was truly exceptional…Kay went above and beyond…the staff are all great. My friends and family who came for the wedding reported it was one of the best weddings they’d been to, and Kay and her staff deserve a lot of credit for this!” Ian and Lauren, July 2016
