Ludgvan, Cornwall

Temporary Closure:

Thank you for visiting The White Hart, we are now under new management and will shortly bring you great home made food in a beautiful country setting. Our kitchen is currently undergoing major repairs and like all hospitality in Cornwall, we are experiencing a major staff shortage, so are unable to take food bookings at this time. If you are an experienced chef or have a passion for great food, and want to be part of a vibrant and exciting team? Then we want to hear from you, click here for more details.

The White Hart is the centre of the local community and we will always remain open for drinks and Cornish treats when we cannot serve food. Please keep an eye here and on our social media as we will update you as soon as possible to our exciting new plans.

Thank you for your patience and watch this space!! 


"A warm and friendly Cornish welcome awaits you at the White Hart here in Ludgvan"

We are located in the small sleepy village of Ludgvan deep within the heart of West Cornwall. The White Hart is one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall and Ludgvan is steeped in farming tradition, surrounded by wooded valleys and fields and yet still easily accessible from the A30.


The White Hart, with its traditional wooden floors and furniture, low beams and all its interesting nooks and crannies, is a unique and worthwhile destination to relax and enjoy your meal.


Due to the current Covid crises, things are different from your last visit. Please have a look at our Covid Safety Policy for more details.
