We visited here a few times over 5 day stay it is in a prime location in St Ives and it gets very very busy. We sat round the back which was nice and clean never got chance to sit around the front, or on the tables and chairs on the beach i mean it gets rammed.I personally found the... More

Great to sit outside with a drink and watch the world go by. I didn't find the staff particularly unfriendly but I did get the impression that the place wasn't very family-friendly (ie with young children) as I enquired about eating in the restaurant and was told if I had children I could only go in a certain area and...

After the the owner came out all guns blazing swearing in front of my wife and kids as he served us a drink knowing we were taking it to The beach, to then have a complete change of heart demanding we move immediately and being a general jobs worth. It is safe to say if my wife and children wern't... More

I love this pub, it's a little rough around the edges but it just adds to its history. Great food, great beer and not shabby prices either. The view outside is beautiful. The staff are very helpful. I love it and I'll happily go again and again and again!!

Our time at The Sloop in previous has been enjoyable and a great atmosphere to be in. However this time, something had been lost within the three years we haven't been there. First of all, in the daytime it was great with it being a good place to have a drink and some lunch due to there being a varied... More

Every member of staff is so miserable and SO unfriendly, if I owned the place I would replace all staff with people who would be grateful of a job, people who understand tourists are vital to survive. EXTREMELY RUBBISH, RUBBISH PLACE DONT VISIT!

Great spot in the harbour always busy didn't eat so can't recommend the food. Beer decent as you would expect. Have to leave negative review as the lady behind the bar bit my head off when I asked for plastic glasses to go outside, when just told that you couldn't take glass on to the beach where they provide seating....

I've visited cornwall annually for the last 13 years. Our annual visit to the sloop was always the start of our holiday... But what a shame that the place lost its identity. Never have my children been made less welcome anywhere. They aren't tiny, 16 and 13 but the girl with the blonde hair and glasses has a total children... More

This was recommended to my mother in law by a man on a train in London and it was a good tip! Fantastic atmosphere right by the sea, good selections of beers and a real quirky old building. Unfortunately we did not dine here as there was a large selection of shellfish on the menu, obviously expected due to location,... More
