Review on White Hart Inn

Perched high up on the edge of the Pennines looking down on the city lights and urban sprawl of Oldham, the White Hart succeeds brilliantly as a re-invented coaching inn, providing pubby bonhomie, serious brasserie/restaurant food and bedrooms with twenty-first century creature comforts.

On the ground floor is a traditional, red-walled rustic bar where you can feast on the White Hart's own Saddleworth sausages washed down with a pint of real ale. Alternatively, follow the signs to the restaurant, where things take a contemporary turn both in terms of décor and food.

Stylish furnishings, dark walnut floorboards and vibrant colour schemes set the tone and the menu follows suit with an upbeat assortment of lively modern dishes. The kitchen believes in 'serving meals not sculptures on a plate', but there's no shortage of innovation. Typical dishes might include roast spiced monkfish with asparagus, pink grapefruit and mizuna leaves; pot-roast maize-fed chicken breast with braised cider, endive, pancetta and prune jus; and coconut bavarois with lime sorbet, honey sauce and pistachio nougat.

On Monday evenings there's a self-explanatory '2 for 1 menu', while Tuesday is fish day. The wine list zooms around the world, collecting good stuff from most major producing countries.
