Classic pub - friendly, invariably busy and doesn't rest on it's olde worlde charm, although it has bags of that too.
Garden is lovely in the summer. Inside there always seems to be somewhere to sit, although only just.
Manages to straddle the gulf between being a friendly local and a lively social pub. Probably because it mercifully has no music, several very well kept and regularly changing beers and a resident landlord and lady who seem to really take pride in running a good pub. They achieve that and more.
Great pub. Famous for its pies and ales, it gets busy with a young crowd from the local area, but a mostly post-university with money to spend type. We arrived too late for dinner, I was surprised to find their kitchen closes at 8pm (what?), so we grabbed a couple of drinks in the big rear garden and had a chat.
Really liked it here; makes me want to live in the village and pop in here for the quiz that was advertised...
The White Hart offers a rural feel in the villagey centre of Old Headington, opposite the mediaeval church.
This is a traditional, multi-roomed pub with a single central servery and a large and very nice beer garden, which has a generous covered area for smokers. The interior walls are decorated with old prints and photos.
They do bar snacks and traditional pub food, including starters and excellent puds, with a good selection of real ales: Tiger Bitter, Pitch Black Stout and Burton Bridge's 'Wonder Wully' on my visit.
There's a very popular quiz night during the week. Service was friendly and efficient: the only downer on our recent visits have been smelly Gents' loos.
One of the best pubs in Headington.
I agree with all the positive points that other reviewers have written.
Nice, rambling, traditional pub with a beer garden and a good selection of beers, popular with hospital staff as well as students at the nearby Ruskin College site.
Probably my favourite pub in Oxford, highly recommended! Good beer (including a selection of real ales), edible food and a nice mix of regulars and occassional visitors.
It also has one of the best beer gardens in Oxford: secluded, walled, floral, grassy, plenty of seats and a perfect place for whiling away a sunny afternoon.
Niice pub and gardens i have been going in there for the last 20yr but i found 1 think wrong this summer staff are not understanding of children with special needs sham with the nice weather on its way not many pubs with gardens to go to.
