A very good range of vegan food, and different from the usual fare. I had the Vegan Fish and Chips - had something similar in the Cornish Vegan (Truro) but this was more like the 'Real Eat' Fish Steaks, but with a far better batter.

My partner had a vegan crab style meal - again, very different but a welcome change.

Drinks were also good and a few nice Ciders were had. Looking forward to a return visit next year!

Food was ok and service was good but I have been wanting to try her for a while and it was slightly underwhelmed. Portions were small, food was fresh just not loads and it just seemed to lack something! Rum is good tho, Deadman’s Finger, created there is worth trying and I went to John’s around the corner and brought a bottle

Was looking forward to going to this place as offered great options on the menu.

However, this experience was far below par and lacked atmosphere and was more like a children’s play factory.

Service was slow and not attentive.

We both ordered crab mac and cheese and this was very wet and lacked flavour. Could hardly taste any cheese.

Left very disappointed and there is much better restaurants on the St Ives front.

what a disappointment. We ordered a sharing platter. The blacked Cajun fish turned out to be tasteless, bland breadcrumbed mystery fish. The popcorn prawns morphed into whitebait, they forgot the crab claws, bringing them out later and the rice had no flavour.

On the good side, they make great cocktails.
