Located in the picturesque village of Lydgate in Saddleworth, our award-winning pub offers an extensive menu that can be enjoyed across the whole venue. Our dining areas (The Brasserie Barn Room, The Brasserie Old Tap Room and The Brasserie Dining Room) feature an array of delicious pub classics as well as beautifully cooked sophisticated dishes.


We have 16 wonderful en-suite bedrooms, 12 of which are in the main building, which was built in 1788 and has retained a lot of the original features. We also have our newly-opened Cottage next door with four family suites, perfect for weekends away with either friends or the children.


Every couple dreams of their wedding and wants it to be unique and at The White Hart, no two weddings are ever the same. No matter the time of year and whether you are looking for an intimate, or an elaborate wedding, we are here to help plan your perfect day.


At The White Hart, we have a number of rooms available for business meetings and conferences, and can provide everything you need for a seamless event.

We are Open!

Saturday 4th July 2020

Pub bar opens 12 noon
The Pizzeria and The Brass Monkey Brasserie open 5:00pm

We have transformed our Oak Room and Pavilion into ‘The Brass Monkey Brasserie’, providing physical distance whilst being a great place to socialise.

Our new menu has elements of the White Hart as you know it, but now includes dishes to suite all tastes and ages. I’ve taken some of my favourite dishes from travels in India, Nepal and Tibet, added a pizza section and with a Piri Piri Chicken dish it is quite an eclectic mix.

We all hope you enjoy the ‘Coming out of Covid’ dining experience.

The Pub has now taken over the previous Brasserie area and provides plenty of physical distance space to enjoy a social drink and a pizza if you fancy with table service.

The rear garden has 20 tables spread out into a mix of individual ‘BUBBLES’ and ‘Two Household Bubbles’.

We have launched an APP to download for ordering drinks and Pizzas within the pub and garden areas.

One day things will get back to normal, hopefully you’ll enjoy the changes we’ve made to adapt to the current ‘normal’.

Current government guidelines for Restaurants:
People should only visit a restaurant in their household groups (or support bubbles), or with one other household, or with up to five other people outdoors.
