Fabulous pub with excellent food. All meals were spot on . But I think the best thing about this place is the staff. Some of the best I have had the pleasure of meeting. Friendly, courteous and efficient. Well done

Popped in for dinner while staying in the area, it's a nice proper pub. I was pleased that there were some good vegetarian options on the menu. Both of us chose to have burgers, my veggie choice was nice and was basically fried Halloumi with lots of vegetables. The aubergine was a little oily but certainly not the worst veggie... More

Local friendly pub with a beautiful beer garden out back set on a quaint quiet street. My pie (steak and kidney) was just what I was looking for - lots of meat, great brown gravy (with a bit of a kick?) smooth tasty mashed potatoes and green peas. Yum. My husband however, did not fare as well. He ordered the... More

Went for a Sunday night dinner. Both me and my girlfriend had a pie which both tasted great and were good value. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Would recommend if you are in the area. Most of the pies were free range and locally sourced which is an added bonus.

A really excellent place, with a great choice of food and drink. The highlight was the beer garden. It was absolutely pristine. Weather was fantastic and the crowd was buzzing. The low point was the kitchen closing at 8pm ... we arrived just on 8pm for a meal and the kitchen was closed. I bet the food was great, but... More

I have lived in Oxford for years and didn't even know this place existed. I went last night and sat in their lovely beer garden. I ordered a vegetarian club sandwich which included fresh tomatoes, pesto, mozarella, advocado, etc. The flavour was amazing. It came with perfectly cooked chips. My friend had gammon and said it was cooked to perfection.... More

If you are staying in the Headington area near Oxford, this is a great local pub (it was recommenced by a local) a few blocks off the main London road. They offer a variety of meat pies including specials, in addition to other typical pub fare. Well prepared and tasty! You wouldn't know it from the front, but they also... More

We spent 10 days in the Oxford area and tried every well known/historic pub in the area. The White Hart is in Headington. It is easily the best of all the pubs we went to. All of the pubs have good beer, ale, cider, etc. Some are more tourist traps than great restaurants. The well known ones in Oxford were... More

No Weaknesses. The White Hart does everything to a good/ verygood/ excellent standard. Selection of hand pulled ales that changes. Fantastic grassed garden that gets sun and has space for young kids to sit on the grass and roll around. Lovely pub food at really good value prices. About a dozen Pies are the speciality, but jalapeno, chilli cheesy chips... More
