Idyllic all round venue

We chose the White Hart Inn for our wedding day as it gave us everything we were looking for: a country location in Derbyshire, luxury accommodation, flexibility on catering options (we wanted to have pizza for our wedding breakfast), lots of little extras (e.g. heater skelter, gin trolleys, ice cream bike), and all at a great price. Our wedding coordinator, Emma, was brilliant - helped get all the details of our day in place and made sure the day itself ran like clockwork. On the day, the whole team was excellent - nothing was a problem and we were able to just soak up the beauty and fun of the day. We had a bit of drizzly rain on our day, but being at the White Hart, this was no problem - the indoor space and sheltered outdoor areas were just perfect! Thank you to all the team.

Gorgeous Venue, polite and helpful staff

We got married here on 17th Feb 2024 and genuinely had the best day of our life’s. Emma was our wedding coordinator and she made sure absolutely everything was perfect for us. I did all our decor myself so needed Emma and the staff to set the venue up following my instructions and they did everything exactly how I wanted it with no fuss. All the staff were so polite and genuinely kind. The venue itself is gorgeous with big chandeliers and fairy lights lighting up the whole ceiling creating the most romantic atmosphere. We had the casino table which went down an absolute treat, three course meal in the day and pizzas at night. Everyone kept telling us how nice their food was and how it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been too. Couldn’t recommend this venue enough, so happy we went with The White Hart Inn. Possibly the most afford venue we found too!

Amazing venue

We had our wedding here in March 2024 and would highly recommend to anyone looking in the Derbyshire area. Emma and the team were amazing in the run up to the wedding, and the whole day ran perfectly without us having to worry about it. We chose the venue as it gave us flexibility to make the day our own, in a gorgeous location with great accommodation for our guests.

September wedding

From the second we walked into The White Hart we knew it was the perfect venue. We made our choice before the extentsion, so when we was told about them we were slightly concerned but once we saw the photos of what it was going to look like I knew I could go anywhere else. It was perfect. Every second of our day was amazing, with the amazing staff going above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect. The food surposed everyone who doubted me for having a buffet as it was phenomenal. With curry, chilli, sandwiches and pizza everyone was happy.
Every room was just amazing and 4 months on im still being told how amazing it was and how perfect the venue was. I urge every bride and groom to visit The White Hart, as a wedding venue or as a pub/restaurant you won't be disappointed.

fabulous venue

We've stayed at the hotel twice now. And fell in love with the location, brilliant food, stunning rooms and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. We looked at several venues for our wedding next year but couldn't find anything that offered the high level of service and tailor made programme that was offered at the White Hart. The manager was incredibly helpful and has helped us arrange florists,photographer, wedding cakes,hairdressers and beauticians, as we are not from the region. Can't wait for next year and seeing all our friends and families faces when they arrive for our big day.
