Definitely worth a return visit - not been before but thoroughly enjoyed it and they catered excellently for my fussy friend (dairy/gluton free and doesn't eat meat). Service was amazing, decor really cozy. Food brilliant.

Superb dinner enjoyed with clients last night. The Brasserie is an ideal environment to enjoy very good food and wine without the need to go to Manchester. My clients were very impressed with the rooms having always stayed in the city centre before. They are already planning to return in the new year. Excellent, thank you all.

The white hart is in a lovely location with beautiful surroundings. You can eat in the brasserie or the dining room, both are great places to eat. The food is top notch, the service too.

The best ribeye steak in Saddleworth! We eat out regularly and the steak at the White Hart is the best in the area. We also highly recommend the pigeon starter whenever that is available. A rare treat!

Having enjoyed the Brasserie previously we went to the Dining Room and had the Chef's tasting menu with matched wines and it was super. The dining room is carefully lit so you can see your food but aren't in the bright light and is really up to date and nicely decorated. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and the...

Had dinner here a couple of days ago. It's a large place and you can eat in the more casual brasserie or in the dining room. We went for the dining room. Service was excellent throughout and the food was lovely - really good quality and couldn't be faulted at all. A thoroughly lovely evening. Also it didn't feel overly... More

The White Hart is always a great place to eat and really good for weddings and charity events too. The food is outstanding in both the restaurant and brasserie area. The only complaint some people may have is that one doesn't get copious amounts of food but it is delicious never the less.

The White Hart is a quintessentially English Inn with Rooms. Heart warming log fires in winter, a wine list for the discerning palate yet affordable, great range of cask ales at pub prices and a 12 strong kitchen team. Bread is baked daily on the premises, produce is locally sourced and the menu is described as 'rustic dining with flair and there desserts are to die for!' The establishment is featured in over ten guide books including the Michelin, AA, Hardens, and CAMRA. We look forward to welcoming you.
