We had the best fish and chips ever real cod rare in this day and age with real chips. The guys behind the bar recommended a couple of ales and they sure knew what they were on about. Amazing flowers outside and I really felt like an old sea dog with the low beems and decor and thank god not... More

Food was good & service friendly but priced a bit high considering how much we actually got on our plates, (Ham, Egg & chips for adults and scampi, chips & peas for children) The children's portions were adequate but adults were disappointing.

This isn't your typical trendy restaurant in St Ives but it is a traditional pub that serves fantastic food. I'm not a seafood eater so this can be a bit difficult as St Ives is known for Sea Food restaurants but my Husband whereas he is. This was perfect as I could enjoy home cooked traditional foods whilst Hubby and... More

Visited several times on a recent holiday to St Ives. Staff knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Food was lovely and had excellent real ales and choice of guest ciders which changed during the week. Quiz night on Monday was great fun and pub was packed.

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
