This pub offers a Sunday Carvery for holiday makers and it has a Trip Advisor certificate for excellence, so my husband and I decided that was where we would eat. I must admit the place was very dismal when we entered but we could see the carvery and it did look ok so we ordered it. The chef was very... More

It was supposed to be steak night but out of a choice of 4-5, they only had fillet steak (the most expensive!) available. The curry ordered instead was very, very mild (bland). I agree with previous comments that the decor looked tired. Sorry but we will not be returning during our holiday.

Had an evening meal her, five people. Meals served together. Good value. Friendly staff. It operates a 'man crèche', see photo. So the ladies can go shopping and leave their men here in the knowledge they will be safe from harm until collected at the end of the day.

We had lunch here twice and it was lovely both times, there is a very kind, helpful and friendly barmaid who was more than willing to put herself out for her customers

The Castle Inn was a throw back to an 80's pub. It looks better from the exterior than it acually is inside. Unfortuneatly it now looks rather tired. The service was friendly and helpful and they sold a good selection of cask ales.When we went it was not very busy and lacked any atmosphere. So we only stayed for one... More

We drunk and had evening meals here several evenings,must admit very nice. But if you are a tourist you are not welcome on Monday evenings. We were asked to leave our seats as locals were booked in after 7 pm. So we went next door to the Union inn much better landlords and a nice clean pub.

Went for a pre dinner drink on three nights during our time in St Ives. Great British pub, warm welcome , good choice of drinks , no music, stone flagged floor & if you want food a good choice of menu. We will definately eat here on our next trip to St Ives in the Autumn.

We decided to do something different on the Monday night as we were staying in St Ives and it's a dog friendly pub which is always a plus. We joined in with the quiz but we did get there about 7.00pm even though the quiz doesnt start till 8.30pm but having gone in on a Monday night before and particularly... More
