A popular pub in the Cornish town of Camborne has reopened its doors with local Publicans Steve and Karen Simmons, alongside their son Matthew, after a relaunch and refurb in partnership with independent pub company Punch Pubs & Co.

Matthew – who will run the business daily – has, alongside his family, transformed the pub which sits on the main high street in the heart of town, giving it an internal refresh with ambition of bringing The White Hart back into the heart of the community.

As part of the renovation, a new snug area has been created to create a cosy spot to spend time with friends as well as the addition of new curved upholstered booths, creating a space for both daytime and evening use. The entire pub interior has also been lovingly redecorated to bring warmth and comfort for all customers to enjoy.

The refresh doesn’t stop with furnishings. Whether you’re watching your team play on the TV or beating your local rival at pool, darts or Euchre, The White Hart remains the place to be for sports fans. Steve, Karen, Mathew and his team promise to ensure their pub is pivotal in bringing the community together and in doing so will introduce some fun, interactive tech with Fido Interactive Darts and Singa Karaoke that will surely bring the party atmosphere.

The pub will reopen with a menu of delicious new offerings from home-cooked breakfasts to dinner including all the pub classics such as lasagne and steak and ale pie as well as a brand new Burger Bar where guests can choose the colour of their burger bun, adding a bit of twist and fun for the kids.

Of course, no pub menu would be complete without a stunning Sunday Roast. The White Hart aims to become famous for theirs locally, creating the perfect place to bring family and friends together for any occasion.

The Simmons family, who are local to the area, also operate The Farmers Arms pub in nearby St Columb Minor, Newquay.

Steve said about the pub: “As someone who was born and raised in Camborne, I’m really grateful that we have an opportunity to give something back to the community. When Karen, Matthew and I saw the opportunity at the White Hart, we saw nothing but potential for this cracking pub. We want to give Camborne a safe, warm and welcome pub to enjoy all year round.

A proper pub with karaoke, pool, darts and Euchre, a cracking drinks offer and a menu for everyone. The investment looks great, and we can’t wait to welcome customers old and new through the doors to take a look at their new look local.”

Punch Pubs Operations Director, Lucy Barker said: “We are really pleased with the investment here at The White Hart; the pub looks fantastic. Our new Publicans have some epic plans to really get this pub back where it belongs, which is at the heart of its community. Hospitality runs through the veins of Steve, Karen and Matthew, and we are confident that with these guys at the helm, Camborne will be able to enjoy this fantastic pub for many years.”

New plans and the investment at the White Hart have created 10 jobs locally, and anyone who might be interested in joining the team can contact the pub directly.
