Stopped here for lunch - just a quick snack the intention but the crab sandwiches were huge with enough tasty crab for two servings at least. A pint of Betty Stoggs, a warm fire and quiet but friendly and efficient barstaff, what more could you ask on a stormy day.

We went in for lunch. Nice warm, friendly welcome. We had pasty chips and peas with gravy. All would have been perfect had the gravy been thicker and the chips not so pale and hard. The pasty was amazing. We will visit again but ask for the chips to be well done. I couldn't use the loo as it was... More

Just walked by and decided to stop for lunch. My daughter had fresh mackerel and she said it was delicious. We had pasty and chips and everyone enjoyed theirs. Nice friendly staff we managed to get a table for 6. With drinks came to £47. Would recommend.

The Hit:- After arriving in St Ives on a Saturday with no restaurant booked we decided to eat in The Union Inn after seeing the two steaks and get a free bottle of wine. Not holding out much hope of it being any better than normal pub food for the money was pleasantly surprise to get two perfectly cooked steaks.... More

During a recent holiday in Cornwall we stayed at a nominal 4 star hotel, their rating not mine. Food is an essential part of a good holiday and if you like nouvelle cuisine our hotel was satisfactory, but only just. As a result we decided that some more traditional food would be very welcome and this is just what the... More

It's what you would expect, pub grub but not at pub prices expensive for what you get. Although the staff are friendly we didn't think much to the food .... The ribs were huge but full of fat... Good deal however on buy two steaks and get a bottle of wine ..
