About The White Hart
With a renovated Stables function space, eight boutique bedrooms and a range of packages to suit a variety of budgets and tastes, The White Hart is the ideal place for a wedding celebration!
Once an 18th-century coaching inn, The White Hart in Ampthill is situated in the north of the Georgian market town and is the perfect venue for your wedding. This historic Grade II listed building, which may date back as far as the 16th Century, continues to be a prominent destination in Ampthill. Features include a wall mural above the bar’s fireplace of the Prince of Wales feathers, created by local artists in 1646, whilst our stylish 1930s dining room was built towards the end of the arts and crafts era.
All weddings at The White Hart are carefully tailored to meet individual requirements and budgets. Our refurbished wedding space, The Stables, features the original oak beams, an open fire, and direct access onto our landscaped alfresco courtyard.
