We stopped here on our last day in St Ives. A great little find we stumbled across. We ordered food which arrived in a reasonable time, food was lovely, home cooked and boiling hot! Bar staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

As all the other bars were overflowing on a summers evening, this was the only one where we could get seating. It was an old world type place. The staff were friendly. The beers as with all English beers were weak however.
