The Fork & Furrow Restaurant

The Fork & Furrow Restaurant at The White Hart Inn offers a fabulous dining experience, and an exquisite menu to match! Proud of their ‘field to fork’ concept, the passionate chefs use fresh, local ingredients to produce wonderful seasonal menus.

The White Hart Inn is a characterful building and the restaurant and bar are both contemporary, yet rustically charming. With exposed stone walls, upcycled solid wood furniture, contemporary lighting, and lots of decorative greenery, they are cosy and stylish, making you feel somewhere special, yet relaxed enough to welcome dogs and muddy boots at lunch! Outside there is the most magnificent terrace with lots of outdoor seating, but most importantly, fabulous views of the surrounding grounds and countryside.

Countryside Location

The White Hart Inn would locally be described as ’out in the sticks’, but this is what makes it so special! On the edge of the Peak District National Park, it’s surrounded by country lanes and rolling Derbyshire landscape, yet is just 15 minutes from Junction 28 of the M1, so it’s easy for visitors and guest to reach too.

The White Hart Inn at Moorside Moor, is located in South Wingfield, a lovely little village full of rural character. It’s just a mile from Wessington, where you’ll find a vineyard which offers regular tours and events. On the outskirts of the Peak District National Park, there are many Derbyshire delights to enjoy, such as Crich Tramway Village which is just 3 miles away, and the ’seaside town’ of Matlock which is just 6 miles away. The historic village of Cromford with its wonderful canal walks is just 8 miles away.  

The Peak District itself is within easy reach and has so many pretty villages, walking and cycling routes, and a huge selection of outdoor activities, not to mention the numerous footpaths right from the door of The White Hart Inn, making it a favourite place for walkers to call in, or stay over whilst exploring this beautiful area.

The changes are remarkable – be sure to give it a try!
