Rusticated quoins to top floor sill level, moulded and eared architraves with projecting keystones, brackets below and aprons above top floor windows. Sash windows throughout without glazing bars. A 3-light window replaces the central carriage arch and the inner window opening to the left-hand bay has been lengthened for a doorway. Fine painted hotel sign between the 2 central first floor windows. Inside, despite extensive remodelling, C16 features survive. The NW room on the first floor has a complete oak panelled scheme with fluted frieze and some carved ornamental panels. This room also has a wide stone fireplace with obtuse angled head, hollow spandrels and stop moulded jambs. There are 2 similar fireplaces on the ground floor. To the rear a stone tiled, rubble stone range with jettied upper storey now stuccoed, masking timber framing. The White Hart is an impressive interpretation by local masons of a Baroque style derived from Gibbs' Ditchley Park.
