My final stop of the night in Truro was this pub, which is now called the White Hart. I'd passed earlier on and decided to give it a miss, as it was so noisy. People had spilled into a yard at the rear. By the time I decided to give it a try sometime after midnight, the outside area was closed, presumably part of its licensing agreement. Nevertheless, it was still noisy, if not noisier still. The atmosphere couldn't have been further from that described in the last review. Once past the bouncer, I had to fight my way to the bar to find the uninspiring selection of Proper Job, Sea Fury & London Pride. I ended up with a Thatcher's Haze. With nowhere to sit, I was thrust into the middle of the pub, where there was much jostling, lots of drunkenness and plenty of dancing too. People seemed to spilling more of their drinks than they were consuming. The clientele appeared to be mainly in the 40's and 50's. Despite this being my 15th pub of the day, I seemed to be the only sober customer. This was far too noisy for me. But it clearly serves a purpose for some.

Felt like a locals pub but right in the town centre.

Place would have been alright if it had a bit of atmosphere in here.

Now just known as the White Hart. Pleasant enough but nothing special.

Gary & Brenda run this place in the shadow of the cathedral. It's more a locals pub then a tourist place. On the pumps: Old Speckled Hen, Summer Lightning and Greene King IPA.

Friendly welcoming pub with good beer, if not a particularly interesting selection.
