“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We live close to the White Hart and have been many times. However we had a private dining room for my wife's 40th birthday in October and everything was 1st class. There was 14 of us aged from 1 to 70 and all enjoyed the food and ambience.

The discussions before the meal on menu, table set up, music and drinks made it easy. The day went as we wanted with attentive service, great food (steak was amazing) and a lovely setting.

It isn't the cheapest but it is certainly the best on this east side of Manchester.

We will contine to dine here and would recommend it.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We eat here on a regular basis, whilst we do not live locally, we do consider this to be our local restaurant. The staff are friendly and the restaurant has a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. We last visited for a set menu on christmas eve and i have to say the menu was delicious - i had the most amazing pork and sage main meal with a apple tart, my husband had roast beef for his main which he states was delicious. Over the last 6-8 months the food here has stepped up to a higher level, it was always good but has been getting better and better.

This is also a wonderful wedding venue, you can have a large event in the oak room or a smaller intimate wedding in the smaller restaurant or the library room upstairs.

“A birthday treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Last week one of my oldest friends and I celebrated her 70th birthday. We went for lunch and each of the 3 courses were freshly prepared , very tasty and of decent proportion. There is a pleasant atmosphere and the buzz and chatter around the main bar tells you that this a is well used local as well as providing by some distance the best kitchen in the Saddleworth area. Charles the owner keeps the place spotless with regular redecoration and recently all new carpets so you get a sense of occasion and feel you have gone somewhere special . There is a comprehensive wine list but the house wines offer good value and are of decent quality without having to go daft. We we were well looked after by
Florian as the White Hart seems now to attract young staff who genuinely want to please,

Go to the White Hart fairly regularly with business associates. The meals are always well presented, tasty and are accompanied by an excelent range of beers and wines. Great staff too.

“Excellent Restaurant”

I went with a business associate for lunch during December and we had the Christmas lunch menu in the brasserie. Excellent food and service a world away from the usual Christmas fayre in the locality. Keep it up.
