If you are in St Ives, browsing the shops on Fore Street, you have a few decent choices at hand. One of them is The Castle Inn. A traditional pub adorned with maritime decoration, dark wooden beams and tables, and a well stocked bar. Plenty of cask ale available, the beautiful Cornish Chough 'Fire Raven' porter on my last visit... More

Popped into the Cattle Inn at lunchtime for a drink. Lovely low ceilings, lots of beers on offer and friendly atmosphere. Would go back there in the evening next time

This pub has become something of a regular on our visits to St. Ives (a favourite destination if you can avoid the crowds!). We popped in most recently when there at the start of walking another section of the SWCP. They stock a number of ales, albeit a tendency to the maltier rather than the hoppier ones (my favourites), which... More

Really nice buzzy pub, seems like locals with a few tourists. Nice beer, good, buzzy atmosphere and they make an effort for veggie diners. We like it a lot.

Typical 'olde worlde' cornish pub. Went in with the family for a meal and it was excellent. 8 very satisfied diners!!! Service was great. Landlord (presumably) was behind the bar and very pleasant and helpful. Stayed on for a few ciders afterwards. Will be back !!!

Did you hear the one about the man who walked in to a bar and asked for an ale that tastes something like Doom Bar? Well, at the Castle Inn the staff behind the bar answered "We only sell decent ales here," quickly followed by his colleague who added, "We don't serve ales that come from the sewer." This charming... More

Back in St Ives in March and delighted to see our favourite pub hasn't changed and is as fantastic as ever. The staff are always friendly, cheerful and helpful and the beers change daily making it a delight for real ale drinkers. Off season they don't serve food but do allow you to bring in your own and we enjoyed... More
