Ashlar in local Baroque style with a gabled slate roof and 3 stone stacks. Three storeys, 6 bays, the centre 2 bays recessed. Moulded cornice. 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.

The White Hart is an impressive interpretation by local masons of a Baroque style derived from Gibbs' Ditchley Park.
