We have avoided this pub as in laws had said they did not like it! Stupid us! They have passed now and I kept reading about the proper pie. Oh how I hate the casserole with a puff pastry lid, THAT IS NOT A PIE!...More

My daughter recently moved to Didcot so we tried this pub for her birthday meal. The menu was varied with plenty of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Our servers were very friendly and efficient. Our food was well presented, served hot and was very tasty....More

Pleasant surroundings plenty of parking, friendly staff and a varied menu. Costs are a little on the pricey side for what you get, the quality is good.

Visited as a group on a Monday evening and was slightly surprised to find the car park full - a good sign. Food was good - a relatively small menu with some specials. Excellent wine list, good beer, great service. Recommended.

Went for a meal Saturday evening with friends and had an excellent meal. All four of us agreed that all three courses were lovely. The service was prompt and efficient but still served with a smile from the waiting staff.

At the Hart we believe in great food, great wine and great company. We aim to provide the best locally sourced food, combined with an exciting variety of drinks to match. We place ourselves at the centre of local village life and make sure everyone receives a warm welcome. In warm weather we have a lovely terraced area to the rear, including a beautifully cosy covered wooden seating area. With comfortable cushions and a scandinavian feel. Inside the pub we have a modern bar area, child and dog friendly, where you can relax and enjoy good conversation. When you're ready to eat you can move to our inviting restaurant, which includes an interesting 'Well table' - can you see to the bottom?
