Staying in room 5 jamaica inn (haunted,review elsewhere) we decided to go to port isaac where doc Martin is filmed,and left quickly when we saw how dead the place seemed didn't even see docs house,most disappointed! Went to Falmouth red ruthless and several other places then decided we had to go back to our old favourite St Ives. Lovely January... More

After a long journey travelling from Leicester all the way to Cornwall. We were ready for a hot tasty meal and a pint. We weren't disappointed! Stake and ale pie and plenty of ales to choose from. Even hot muled cider! If your visiting St Ives make sure you pop it!

We often stay in St.Ives and always visit The Sloop. We've had mixed experiences with the staff there recently varying from indifferent to downright rude..the food is ok but not fabulous and the bar prices on the high side. It's in a great location for sure but I think we will visit there less often in the future if they... More

My partner and I had a last minute booking for 1 night on New Years Eve- we were lucky to get the last room.... or were we? The room was in an adjacent block and although clean and fresh in the bedroom with white linen and decor, the bathroom was awful! Old cracked floor tiles, a shower that had to... More

My wife and I used to love the Sloop, but it feels like it is less a lovely independent seaside pub, and more a horrible chain pub with dreadful atmosphere. Might just be a quirk of mine, but i hate the till screen behind the bar, and the tvs showing pictures of the pub, and advertising the 4 pint pitcher... More

I had dinner three nights in a row, trying each of the three seafood specials. All of these were fresh, excellent and good value. Apparently the pub food is the same as one gets in the adjoining restaurant. The pub is not quite in the most touristy area and there even seemed to be a few local customers. As a... More

We had previously visited The Sloop Inn for food and drink whilst filming for A Place in The Sun - Home or Away in mid June. We loved it so much that when an opportunity came to visit St Ives again, we jumped at the chance of booking a night in this traditional pub. They did not disappoint us. As... More
