Share a Glass with Kay Chandler, of The White Hart at Fyfield
Since arriving at the White Hart in 2005, Mark and Kay Chandler have brought about dramatic changes to restore this beautiful hostelry to its 15th century former glory. They love what they do. This is evident in every aspect of a visit to the White Hart, from the delicious food to the welcoming service. Everything is done with care, thought and passion. The growing list of awards and accolades is testament to this.
"Mark and I fell in love with the white Hart when we first saw it over 10 years ago and we continue to feel this way. We are passionate about what we do and have always wanted to share our foodie enthusiasm with others. We are proud to be independent and support our community. We love the fact we grow lots of our own produce and prepare everything fresh in our kitchens. We love that we make people happy. Quite simply, we have created the sort of experience that we like when we go out to eat!"
