The White Hart has been a family run pub for over 12 years, supported by a good local team. Whilst we have a great following of local people we are always pleased to welcome visitors from far and wide.
We offer great real ales as well as the usual array of drinks, along with good food that is available both lunch times and in the evenings, there are more details on our food and drinks page along with our menu.
We also have letting rooms which you can view on our accommodation page, some have easier access for the less able, one room with wheel chair access.
The White Hart was originally a private residence, in fact at one time it was the home of the local doctor and birth place of the renowned Charles Benjamin Incledon (more details about him below).
Most evenings we play quiet background music, occasionally we do have the bit of a do on, as well as our regular popular quiz and bingo nights (there are more details on our what’s on page).
The White Hart is a vibrant village pub that welcomes a variety of visitors, this can include vintage and classic car clubs, steam engine and vintage tractor enthusiasts as well as bike clubs (powered and pedalled). Those occasions when these visits are preplanned we will post it on this website.
We look forward to welcoming you to not only to the White Hart but to St Keverne as well.
Lesley Garrett appeared at the White Hart on Wednesday 4th of October. Lesley has been undergoing a full rebuild over the last eight years and now she is ready to strut her stuff again. We hope to see much more of her, not only in St Keverne but all around Cornwall and beyond.

Well done team.
St Keverne had a pleasant start to the new year when the village had a visit from members of the,
Cornwall Austin 7 Club.
We were pleased to serve them our Sunday Roast and we hope they pay the village another visit in the near future.

Alvis Car Meet 16th October 2013.
Charles Benjamin Incledon
(1763–11 February 1826,
Worcester) was a Cornish
singer, son of a doctor in
St Keverne, Cornwall, and
educated at Blundell's School
and as a choirboy at Exeter,
but then went into the navy.
His fine tenor voice, however,
attracted general attention,
and in 1783 he determined to
seek his fortune on the stage.
After various provincial appearances he made a great success in 1790 at Covent Garden, and thenceforth was the principal English tenor of his day. He sang both in opera and in oratorio, but his chief popularity lay in his delivery of ballads, such as The Lass of Richmond Hill, Sally in our Alley, Blackeyed Susan, The Arethusa, and anything of a bold and manly type. He toured in America in 1817; and on retiring in 1822 from the operatic stage, he travelled through the provinces with an entertainment called The Wandering Melodist. He retired to reside in Brighton but was in Worcester when a second attack of paralysis proved fatal.

This meet is held each year to remember a director of Alvis Engineering, Major Cyril Maurice Harvey, who is buried here in St Keverne.
Birth: 1891,Death: Aug. 2, 1936.
Motor racing driver and Director of Alvis Engineering, Coventry. Bristol-born Major Harvey was gassed and escaped from German captivity during WWI. He joined Alvis as a sales representative and works driver, and he was a popular driver who raced at Brooklands, Le Mans and the TT Races in Ulster. He has been described as good but unlucky. He won the Brooklands 200 Mile Race in 1923 giving Britain it's first major triumph, but in 1928, in the same event, crashed whilst in the lead. He raced his FWD Alvis car to 6th place in the 1928 Le Mans 24 hour Race. A serious accident in 1932 ended his racing career. He was also active in designing cars. Bad luck dogged him all of his life. He saw his first wife killed in a road accident and his second wife left him. He even fell from a horse the day before he died. He took his own life whilst camping at Trevenwith Farm, St Keverne, Cornwall in 1936.
Burial: St Keverne Churchyard, St Keverne, Cornwall, England.
