It's a busy 700 year old pub with about 10 letting rooms (that's my guess), it's ideally located at the far end of the seafront entertainments. My room was off the alleyway to the side of the pub. My room was huge, with a kitchen area, ensuite bathroom and sofa in front of the TV. The housekeeping is superb, everything... More

I'm reviewing the accommodation not the bar. My room, 'The Net Loft' is a cute bedroom with kitchenette, tv area and a small ensuite bathroom. It's accessed by a Dickensian cobbled alleyway and a large iron key opens the door. The room was big, spotless and comfortable, I really enjoyed staying there. The location is unbeatable in Ives -it's just... More

My husband took me to this 1300s inn & pub for my birthday dinner. It was very popular, without side seating packed, and upstairs seating not full, but 45 minute wait. We made one other attempt to eat elsewhere, but quickly returned and put our name in. We had cider and a gin&tonic at the bar while we waited.. friendly,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Courtyard Suite. Unfortunately we could not get a room with seaview, but it was a perfect room - situated behind the Sloop Inn - really quiet eventhough it was next to a terracebar. Really good breakfast and the restaurant "Captains Table" was good! We had a 3 course meal on a special... More

Lovely pub in an enviable position. My contention is that their service is very discourteous, downright rude, serving locals first and visitors last. I witnessed a local walk in, shout the barman's name (John), and then get served THROUGH the queue of 3 visitors. They need to remember who makes up 90% of their custom before treating visitors so discorteously.

Staff reasonably friendly, food was better than when we went in last year. So definitely better this time around. Always a popular place in a very good setting in the harbour. Very little parking which is pay and display. St Ives can be difficult to negotiate by car unless you know the area well which luckily we do so no... More

I agree with smiler888 and clubzy. Experienced poor especially their manager As a tourist i'd give it a miss until they improve customer service. I have been to this pub many times and on my visit in Aug 2014 with my family for a drink on a lovely summers day. My wife noticed the pint of ale I was drinking... More

I have been visiting St Ives since i was tiny and we always used to go to the Sloop for lunch. Being young we'd have soft drinks and my dad a beer. We'd always have a warm baguette freshly made. It was nice and homely, unique and old worldly. I was shocked coming back as an adult to see it... More
