The White Hart (1), 31 Newland Street, Eynsham
A very popular local pub, where many local groups are based including the Eynsham Morris Men. It also offers accommodation and food. Unfortunately the number of parked cars made taking a picture very difficult.

The building is Grade II listed and is very old and is cruck framed. The pub has an excellent website which gives a detailed history. To summarise from that, and other sources, the building was built in or no later than 1366 as a court house, with an open roof. Some of the early "A" frame oak beams still exist in the roof structure. There was extensive remodelling in the 17th century, and further work in later periods.

By 1750 the building was in use as an inn under the name of the Rose & Crown. In 1780 it became the Haunch of Venison, and took its present name in 1835. In the early 1800's it became a coaching inn and a stable block for more than 30 horses was built in 1828. In olden days it was noted for its piggery at the back (now the garden) and as a centre for cock fighting.
