The traditional village inn comprises extensive open-plan trading areas with two bar serveries, a dining toom and pool tables, along with a well-kept, spacious beer garden and children’s play area outside. Together with the pub, the site also offers three sets of accommodation. A large detached five-bedroom house with private garden and garage is set to the rear, which is currently let out to private tenants, and the first floor of the pub provides a one-bedroom and a four-bedroom apartment, with the one-bedroom flat being currently let out and the apartment used as owners’ accommodation. 

Enjoying a strong reputation in the community, particularly for its food offering, The White Hart Inn benefits from a high level of local custom and, due to its ideal location close to visitor hotspots Polzeath and Bodmin, also draws in trade from a wider radius. Having worked in The White Hart nearly all his life, current owner Barry Burton is now looking to retire from the sector.

Stephen Champion, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Exeter office, comments, “This inn would suit a wide range of buyers from experienced operators to new business owners or those looking for a lifestyle change. There are some great opportunities to grow the business through further advertising as the business currently does not have its own website or by changing the current accommodation into a bed & breakfast letting rooms. Viewings are highly recommended to appreciate this well trading business.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers of £945,000 for the freehold interest of The White Hart Inn.
