Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The White Hart is situated in the centre of the City of Truro which is the retail and administrative centre for the County of Cornwall. Truro has a resident population of circa 22,000 with numerous housing developments ongoing within the City boundaries. The City attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors year round owing to its extensive range of national and niche retailers and benefits from schooling for all ages and a station on the main Penzance to Paddington Rail line.


The White Hart is one of the most instantly recognisable Public Houses within the City and is one of the few remaining examples of a traditional Public House to be found within the area. The business is operated by our client with the assistance of several part-time staff, whilst The White Hart does not currently have a food offering there is a commercial kitchen on the first floor and this is a potential area for new owners to grow the already impressive turnover further.

The accounts for the year ending March 2018 show a turnover of £437,277, full accounting information will be made available subject to a viewing appointment in the usual manner.
