A la carte menu


Oxford Times Review January 2017

Our a la carte menu is subject to daily change to reflect the availability of the freshest and most seasonal produce. It is not an extensive menu since everything is prepared fresh everyday. We seek to put quality over quantity at all times.

“The food and service at The White Hart is spot-on. This was a celebratory weekend for us (our daughter’s first birthday) and we couldn’t have asked for finer food or for a more friendly atmosphere. I heartily recommend this gastro pub any day of the week (with a monthly à la carte menu that looks fabulous), but especially on a Sunday”   Daily Info July 2017



Our ethos and raison d’etre is thus:

Not so long ago, the fayre offered by this country inn would have been exclusively produced from what was hand-reared, hunted, seeded and foraged from our local woods, fields, hedgerows , river and, not least our dovecote.

Weary stage-coach travellers would have been warmly welcomed in every season of the year and offered a daily changing feast of a menu – roasted, smoked, pickled and cured. No food wasted, everything cooked fresh daily, and everything sourced from within a short horse and cart ride away.

Today, our ethos and commitment to farm-to-table, free range, locally sourced ingredients is not only a never-ending quest to serve food with real taste, it’s to ensure that we take seriously our responsibility to the environment and sustainability. It’s also to provide you with, we hope, something special, that’s well worth the effort, skill and time it takes to serve it to you. We hope you enjoy your visit.

  1. The pub is an old favourite, but had fallen down in late years. You’ve reinvigorated it and made it into a gem that I’m confident to recommend. I hope others will see the care you put into your food from the photos – they’re a great addition to your website.


    • Thank you for taking the time to write this, it is most appreciated. The pub has had a chequered history and we were so pleased to be able to get our hands on it. So many people have many fond and distant memories of it. It’s early days still, but we do have a very clear vision to put it right back up there.
      Kind regards



  2. Lovely pub, delicious food, warm atmosphere and friendly staff – you definitely have the right recipe for the White Hart. Thank you – we had a lovely couple of hours relaxing in your establishment. All the very best for the future.
    Kind Regards,
    Sue and Jim and family
    Ps. See you soon!

  3. The food here really is lovely! As one of your suppliers, we thought that as you support our business, we should support yours and come in for lunch. It was superb! I had pork with dauphinoise, black pudding and poached pear – devine! We sat by the fire and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. I have booked to return with some friends tomorrow and can’t wait.
