About The White Hart

51 Stockport Road, Lydgate, Oldham
Greater Manchester, OL4 4JJ

At The White Hart we help you to transform your dreams and ideas into reality. When the Marriage Act was altered in 1996 (on April Fool’s day: a nice touch, we thought) couples wanting to get married were able to do so for the first time in a venue other than a church or registry office. We were one of the first inns to be granted a licence to hold civil wedding ceremonies, and have worked incredibly hard ever since to ensure that every wedding day is individually organised down to the smallest detail. We sit down with you to prepare a detailed programme and instructions sheet for the day so that everybody knows who is doing what and when: you get a copy too, so that you are always in control. At the White Hart there is always someone at your shoulder; to answer queries, offer advice, receive instructions and help however they can, whatever the problem. In an emergency we cope. We take the trouble so that you can relax and enjoy the whole day.

Take a look at our Instagram page @whitehartweddings.

• A number of the inn’s reception rooms are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies • The Oak Room can seat up to 160 people and now firmly places the White Hart Inn as one of THE North West weddings venues. • The grounds have the backdrop of the stunning Chew Valley with the Saddleworth moors making a wonderful setting for your wedding photographs. • In our contacts list you will find the best local photographers: they all come highly recommended by previous clients. • The White Hart has established a great reputation for excellence and reliability when it comes to serving fine cuisine and good, sensibly priced wines. • The White Hart’s fantastic ‘in-house’ catering will leave your guests’ mouths watering

Jason & Vals wedding
Venue Service

By Jason Simmonds, on 17 May 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

We had a small family wedding reception and meal in the library room, and it was perfect. The Waitresses and the Maitré D were so attentive and thoughtful and made everything go so smoothly, in fact, all the staff here made the whole day from planning to arrival stress free and myself and my wife ( now) thank you all. I would recommend this venue to anybody, whether it be a small or large wedding or even a special birthday, it's just perfect. Many thanks, Jason & Val

Wish we could do it all over again!

We got married here last week. It was an absolutely perfect day from start to finish. The Oak Room and Pavilion are absolutely stunning. Food was amazing and could not fault the staff at all. Bedrooms are lovely too. Phil did an amazing job of looking after us on the day and everything went as planned! Wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much.

Professional, helpful and friendly

From start to finish I found The White Hart at Lydgate staff to be professional, helpful and friendly. The venue is amazing, the food is unsurpassed and I would recommend this venue to everybody (not just for weddings!). Maria and I could not have hoped for a better day and the value in money is incomparable.

Amazing from start to finish!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Laura for making our day so special. You were so amazing from start to finish and couldn't do enough to help with everything. Everyone commented on how lovely our arrangements were and the bouquets were amazing! Thank you so much.

The venue is just beautiful
Venue Service

By Emily Heward, on 11 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2018

We got married here two weeks ago and could not have asked for a better wedding venue. From start to finish, Mike, Ian, Phil, all the events team and the staff on the day went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. The food was a major factor for us when choosing a venue and having dined a few times at The White Hart and The Dining Room we knew it would be exceptional, and it was. Everyone we've spoken to since the day has told us how much they loved the meal and so did we. Phil and Jacob were brilliant at making sure everything ran smoothly on the day and were there to reassure us at every step, and the service from the bar and waiting staff was superb too. They also made the set-up/breakdown a breeze for us. The venue is just beautiful and exactly what we were looking for - particularly the Pavilion which allowed us to have a semi-outdoor ceremony with a bit of cover in case of any rain (thankfully it stayed away!). Everyone really enjoyed the pizza out there in the evening too. The accommodation was beautiful too - both the cottages and the rooms inside the pub made a lovely setting for the getting ready pictures. I can't recommend the White Hart enough for anyone planning a wedding (or just looking for a good meal/night away). We could not fault a thing and we couldn't have had a better day. There are too many people we dealt with along the way to thank everyone by name but the biggest, most heartfelt thanks to you all from me and Alessandro for a day we'll never forget x

Best day of my life!
Venue Service

By Hayley Whittaker, on 11 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Mar 2018

Safe to say my wedding here was the best day of my life! We were the first couple to get married in the outdoor pavilion and everything ran smoothly with the help of the staff. There were no stresses and everything was perfect and exactly how we wanted it. The food was to die for!! I've never tasted beef so good!! Amazing customer service from booking the venue right up until the end. So helpful, friendly and polite. Cannot thank you all enough.

The Oak Room took my breath away!
Venue Service

By Elizabeth McOwen, on 11 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Dec 2017

We held our Christmas wedding at The White Hart and it was the most perfect day we could ever have imagined. The staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and they made sure the whole day ran smoothly. The food was fabulous and the Oak Room took my breath away when I first walked in on the day. We couldn't have chosen a more beautiful venue and would highly recommend it to anyone, whether you're after a cosy drink, a wonderful dining experience or the wedding of your dreams. We will be back very soon.

You are truly looked after at The White Hart
Venue Service

By Wendy Stanley, on 11 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

We had our wedding reception at The White Hart on the 8th July 2017, it was amazing. The events team at The White Hart were brilliant and can't be faulted. They did everything before and on the day to make sure our wedding reception and evening went as smoothly as it could. Highly recommend the Pavilion for pre drinks. We wouldn't have gone anywhere else, you're truly looked after at The White Hart.

Faultless in every way.
Venue Service

By Richard Jones, on 28 Mar 2005

From the initial enquiry to the last detail on the day, the professional service was great. The food was lovely, and how they catered for that number of people and kept the standards up I do not know. Well Done

excellent, the best
Venue Service

By Robert Jones, on 10 Apr 2004

The White Hart epitomises quality, the personal service leading up to our big day was very professional. The attention to detail on the day, attentive yet discreet service and the quality of food was all faultless. I would recommend the White Hart to anyone.
