I visit St Ives at least once a year on holiday and I love to visit The Sloop. You get a real sense of history as soon as you step inside. The beers are always superb and food is great. I love sitting outside in the sunshine watching the world go by along St Ives harbour side. Just watch your... More

Not dog friendly, told very rudely to put my tiny lapdog on their cold, dirty floor. Horrible atmosphere so left. Will not return again

Popped in for lunch but not sure we would stay as the pub is quite dark inside however you soon come to realise that this pub is authentic and has probably not changed over all these years it can almost take you back in time when pirates were probably around. The staff were very friendly and we ordered the burger... More

I love this place, it's my favourite place to be when we visit St Ives, just got home and I already wish I was sat outside with a pint of Ghost Ship and a Tiki Fire Rum. Had the Roast dinner yesterday, was incredible AND you get a free bottle of wine when you buy 2 roasts. Can't wait to... More

We love it in here, the atmosphere is very friendly and you are always welcomed in. They do lovely food and local drinks too. If you are visiting st Ives, you should visit the sloop.

My husband and I loved this pub. Everything about it - the decor, atmosphere, food, wine and beer. A Must Visit in St Ives. Not necessary to say anything more.

A very pricey pint (£4.65 Jail Ale) in an historic pub in a prime location overlooking the Harbour in St Ives. Friendly staff and I am told good food ( by other non-local diners). I imagine in the busy season it will be heaving. Other than Jail, Doombar( apparently still brewed in Rock) and Adnams on tap. The local flat... More

A nice quaint pub with a large menu. The food was nice, lots of seafood available and reasonably priced. A good place to eat if you like chips, they come with everything !!! It is a dog friendly pub, not sure about children but I think they are welcome if eating

Tried the 'Captain's Table' restaurant on the first floor of the Sloop after checking TripAdvisor which gave good reviews. I heartily concur after my experience- delicious steak and an excellent accompanying sauce with Creme Brûlée pudding. Lovely service and atmosphere however note that ceiling is very low (find whilst sitting but beware when standing!) Fab food and modern surroundings at... More
