“Nearly excellent”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Been going to the White Hart for years, all through its various extensions and updates. These days, it's main market is obviously weddings because of the financial rewards. I personally preferred it in the earlier days when it was just a really upmarket restaurant with a great chef (who was co-owner, but has since left), fabulous staff, and great attention to detail - particularly the standard of service - all the people working there were the best in their particular field.These days, the Oak Room is a fabulous room which can cater for around 200, but it's just not at the level it once was. I would say it is still probably the best venue in the area for large events.

Stayed here for one night as we attended a wedding in april. Wedding was fabulous couldnt fault it, the food was outstanding. The wedding venue was lovely, staff where great. But they put us in room 6, I had read reviews before and remembered someone on here had mentioned a fan going all night outside room 6. After going to the room I could hear it, when we went downstairs to attend the wedding I mentioned it to the manager and that someone had complained about it before. He then said it must be the kitchen fan and when they close the kitchen it will go off. It didnt it went on all night, so much you could feel the vibration on the head board. They must know about this but prefer to turn a blind eye. At 2am I had had enough and rang reception but no one there, yes for £118 a night no 24 hour reception. I know I could have got one of the staff out of bed but I'm not that cruel. I even thought about sleeping in the car. Think its an air con unit on outside wall. Had no sleep all night and mentioned it to staff when checking out who just said really! And just smiled. Must be the worse room there as it's in the roof too and very small. Not surprised there is no photo of this room on their web site, breakfast was nothing to write home about. Service at breakfast was very poor. Shame really as the wedding was fabulous.

Every time we visit the White Hart, we have a fantastic experience. The food is consistently outstanding, as it the service (Jessica was attending to our table on our most recent visit and she was excellent, as always). We are so lucky to have such an amazing restaurant in Saddleworth. Looking forward to returning for our birthday meal very soon!

We recently got married at The White Hart on 17th April 2014 and we couldn't have chosen a better venue to celebrate our special day! From start to finish the staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us! The oak room is a stunning room for the wedding breakfast and reception and the restaurant was set up lovely to create a very intimate setting to take our vows!
The food is amazing, everybody enjoyed it and commented how lovely this was, I would highly recommend the hog roast in the evening it went down a treat!
If you want an amazing venue, with fantastic staff and in lovely surroundings choose the white hart you won't be disappointed! Thanks again for making our day run smoothly and be as perfect as we wanted, I'm just sad it's all over!

I recently had my wedding at The White Hart Inn.
Myself and my husband can not praise this venue enough, the setting is beautiful, the staff are the most organised and helpful people you will come across.
The food is absolutely out of this world, I can not thank Phil enough for looking after us throughout our day ensuring our day went smoothly which it did.
I would not hesitate in recommending The White Hart to anyone there is no wedding venue as good as this in the Greater Manchester Area!!
The hotel rooms are very spacious and lovely and clean.
Thanks again everyone at The White Hart you did a fantastic job.

We attended a wedding at The White Hart and stayed the evening. The room was excellent and the hospitality superb! Food was excellent too! The breakfast was an excellent buffet spread followed by an extensive hot food menu! The breakfast was both tremendous and hearty! The Inn offered excellent views across Saddleworth Moor and to the city of Manchester. This makes this an ideal base to go walking or cycling when the weather allows, if nit then there is always a hearty fire and warm welcome in the bar or restaurant where there is a varied selection of local ales! All in all an excellent stay!

The White Hart is celebrating 20 years of being at Lydgate and we have been eating there on and off for 15 of them. In that time we have had very few meals that we did not enjoy. Sat night we ate there and had a very good meal. For starters we had rabbit pate, vegetable à la grecque and crab ravioli both excellent, then braised ox cheek, serrano ham, potato butter, kale and slow cooked pork neck with an apple sauce. Also excellent although the mains did not come with any thing substantial which for the price could be included rather then having to pay for side dishes. Pudding was chocolate, peanut butter, caramelised bananas, delicious but I did take some issue with as the "bananas" actually consisted of two pieces. A bit mean I thought. Overall good food and good service and will return again and again.
