About

Located in the village of Uppermill, Saddleworth. Named after a local landmark linked to Druids in bygone days and more recent history with local Poet Ammon Wrigley. Anglo-Italian would best describe the food. Italian due to the pizza and pasta offerings. Anglo due to the eclectic mix of various tastes linked to our Colonial Days.

Saddleworth Legend has it that Druids gathered at the Dinnerstone to celebrate the summer solstice with their annual feast. Overlooking Castleshaw, the Dinnerstone is the favourite resting place of a true Saddleworth legend. Poet, Ammon Wrigley, whose statue proudly stands in Uppermill, had his ashes scattered around the Dinnerstone’s base.

Business Update

Thursday 27th May 2021

We have tried to contact everyone by email and phone and posted on facebook but a few we have not been able to get hold of so can only apologise if you have arrived for your table and we are not open and hope you understand.

This morning at 10am, one of the senior members of our kitchen team at The White Hart at Lydgate was taken seriously poorly and is currently in hospital where they remain under the care of NHS professionals.  This is NOT a Covid related illness.  We also understand that they are not critical and is going to make a full recovery, but it will take time, and they don’t know how long.  We have sent our best wishes to them and their family, and they are in good spirits.

Since we re-opened, there has been massive demand which has stretched all departments in both businesses.  The misfortune with two senior members of the Dinnerstone kitchen team leaving at the end of furlough didn’t help.  Everyone is working under massive pressure and I now must consider the wellbeing of all our team, and how we can carry on with the temporary loss of another senior member of our joint kitchen brigades.

I have decided that on Monday 31st May, Dinnerstone will temporarily close until further notice.  All the Dinnerstone team will be seconded to the White Hart and strengthen the team here.

I must stress that everybody’s job is safe, and the level of trade we have can sustain full employment.

I know this may come as a shock to everyone, but I hope you understand it is a decision I have not taken lightly.

All reservations at the Dinnerstone will go ahead this weekend up to and including Sunday 30th May, after that time all reservations will be offered alternative options at the White Hart on the Muntjac Menu.

At the White Hart – The Muntjac Menu is available Friday 28th and Monday 31st May in the garden

It is NOT available on Saturday and Sunday 29th and 30th May.

I apologise for the short notice of this decision.

Dinnerstone will re-open, I just don’t know when yet.

Kind Regards,

Charles and the Teams at The White Hart at Lydgate and Dinnerstone
