n 2005 current owners, Kay and Mark Chandler, took over this historic 15th Century building, in the picturesque village of Fyfield. Built during the reign of Henry VI as a chantry, The White Hart boasts many original features including a tunnel to Fyfield Manor, which was built at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries. ousing one of the most stunning interiors of any pub in the region, the setting is breathtaking, from the soaring eaves of the great hall and minstrel's gallery, to the bar with a roaring log fire in winter and terrace full of aromatic herb gardens in summer.
A firm believer in using local produce, Mark forages in local woodlands and has developed a large kitchen garden where he grows fruit and vegetables for the menu. Kay is the perfect host, offering a warm professional welcome to all her guests. Cooking is modern British with their slow roasted pork belly, with foot long crackling, being a favourite amongst the well-heeled members of the Oxfordshire and Cotswolds society.
The White Hart has held two rosettes for culinary excellence for four years running, yet it is still somewhere you can stop and have a pint of real ale after a hard day’s work. It was voted one of the 'Top 50 Gastropubs' in the UK, in a recent industry poll. [+]
