If you are looking for good old fashioned pub food then The White Hart in the quiet village of Ludgvan is well worth a visit. A traditional and historic pub dating back to the 14th Century. Situated within the realms of the pilgrims footpath to St. Michaels Mount from St. Ives it's the perfect refreshment spot for walkers too.
Most of the food is locally sourced from the farm down the road and the vegetables come from local allotments. The trio of local sausages and steak are always worth ordering and the desserts, particularly the chocolate brownie, are delicious. This is the very definition of a Cornish village pub, the locals pop in via tractor and via horseback, the roof is low, the ales are cold and you will always find a warm welcome.
Limited serving times so phone and book rather than pop in on the off chance, seek the nooks and corners of the old parts - very romantic with roaring fires in the winter. Dogs are welcome, plenty of seating inside, out the front and to the rear in the garden. Parking is available at the front and also along the roadside by the historic church.
From the A30 turn at the Ludgvan crossroads, head up the hill and you can't miss it.
