The History of the White Hart
Tucked in close to the old town’s heart, under the shadows of the church tower, The White Hart has long been St Austell’s foremost inn.
It has played a pivotal role in the St Austell Brewery estate since Walter Hicks bought it for £5000 in 1911 , a sum that matched its importance within the town and a whole £1000 more than he had previously offered when it went unsold at auction in 1908. Perhaps a Royal visit to the town and the hotel by His Majesty King Edward VII in 1909 persuaded Walter of its worth!
