White Hart1 Sheep Market
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The White Hart is a former coaching inn and hotel. A well preserved flag stone floored central passageway, leads to where the stable block was located, part of which survives as the outside toilets. The bar to the right of the central passway is the oldest part of the pub. The main bar is on the left. The room is wood pannelled with prints and paintings on display. A large antique clock is a feature of this bar. Lunchtime meals are served daily until early evening. Good value accomodation available. In addition to the rear outdoor area there are tables on the Market Square in front of the pub in warmer months making more of a cafe culture.
HISTORY - The White Hart dates back to the late 1600's and along with the Royal Oak is probably one of the oldest pubs still trading in St Ives. The current building dates from the 18th century. Note the stone flagged passageway floor as you enter the pub.
