We recently moved to Cornwall and have visited this pub with family & friends on 3 occasions now. First time there was about 8 of us, the restaurant was full but the barman said it was ok to push two tables together in the bar area. The bar staff watched us do it then came over and told us to put them the other way around. Minor quibble so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Second visit, again with family, food ok, bar staff not very welcoming but locals friendly. Third visit, with friends, restaurant empty but told we can't use it because it's set up for Xmas dinners in the evening (this was at noon, we looked, there were crackers on the tables and that's it!). Anyway, we were left to find a table, but were told that the tables in the bar area were reserved, so they seemed happy with the 9 of us sitting on two tiny tables by the pool tables in an empty pub. We left & went to the Seina Arms in Perranporth where we were welcomed with open arms into a busy pub and the barman moved tables for us.
To summarise: the White House looks like a cracking pub with good facilities but is completely let down by miserable bar staff and a very unwelcoming atmosphere - shame!
