Sample menus: Christmas Parties | Feasting menu


Let’s celebrate Christmas in Oxford like it never happened last year (maybe it didn’t, for many). Throughout December (and from the end of November if that suits your diaries better), we’ll be running our group Christmas party menu.

We’ll be open for Christmas Day and Boxing Day lunches and we have fabulous music and dining planned for New Year’s Eve. Dine with us inside or out, The White Hart fits cosy gatherings and lively celebrations due to its unique period features and clever use of outdoor space – whatever the weather.

The Observatory will be enclosed and heated with blankets available for you to host your celebrations in our media-acclaimed dining pods. Make use of the raise deck as a stage for any entertainment you wish to bring along to your Christmas party.

Our Georgian stable block with its vast roaring log burner and original stalls creates a simply unique and intimate venue if you’re bringing friends, colleagues or family together yet seek the privacy of your own space.
