A proper pub with real ale. Great welcome and service. Try the Betty Stoggs. Books to swop and read along with plenty of newspapers, making for a lazy afternoon! Didn't try the food but it looked and smelled good and was very reasonably priced. fun quiz 8pm every Monday.

We stayed in St Ives, and went here last night for evening meal. Very friendly, great pub food and well worth a visit. We both had steak and chips. And joy of joy. . . real chips! Steak cooked to perfection,good price too. (we both like it rare). The staff and regulars were friendly and welcoming.

Lovely dog friendly pub. We had a child's nuggets and chips and 2 Sunday carveries, we had so much meat it was unbelievable and a lovely choice of pots and veg. Real home cooked grub, a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

We regularly as a family pop in to the Castle for typically pre dinner drinks and we love the proper pub feel as apposed to a Yates/Weatherspoon type place !!

We visited The Castle Inn for a Sunday roast in early October. The place was relatively busy but we had no problem finding a place to sit and were encouraged to move some tables together so our party of 6 could eat together. Four of us had the roast - 2 lamb and 2 pork and the meals were very... More

I've visited four days on the trot being on a short break in St Ives. Mandy and Sara behind the bar are very personable and friendly and professional. The drinks are kept well and served well. I didnt eat but food looked good. I will be back

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
