What a great location. We have been visiting since the earky 80's. Fantastic ambiance, location, weather. Always loved it.... BUT the bar service left a lot to be desired. I have never been so offended by a bar manager in my life...I am in my 70's He accused me of being racist because he ''thought '' I was ignoring him.........he... More

I am a great fan of St Ives and the surrounding area but find somewhere that is centrally located and dog friendly very hard to find. The Sloop Inn (Net Loft) is an excellent exception stand alone room (with kitchenette and bed-sit accomodation) where my border collie was welcomed and very happy. Given it was one of their 'dog friendly... More

We have been visiting St.Ives for years and love the little pubs there. Every time we go we always visit this historic pub, but I have to say our visit there in May this year left us not wanting to go back. The owner is just plain rude and its such a shame as the pub and the other members... More

This 14th Century inn is everything you would imagine, rambling with a confusing entrances but more charm than you could ever ask for AND in a location to die for! Situated right on the waterfront it has fabulous views of the harbour and bay. Our bedroom was fine – it was roomy enough with a large bathroom/dressing room and a... More

We've been coming to St Ives for years and we always end up at the Sloop. You may have to wait a little while for a table outside when it's busy but it's worth it. There's always some form of entertainment going on at the harbour too. Inside is a little dark and the toilets are up some steep steps... More

Have been visiting St Ives for years and always end up at the sloop so this time we thought we would stay there. It did not disappoint, the location is great and the rooms of a good standard, even for us with a dog. Recommend the food and the beer always tastes better when you are looking at the view... More

Visited the Sloop on a couple of occasions last week during a week visit to St Ives. The location is fantastic for admiring the view of the harbour and Porthcurno beaches. Sitting in the sun showed it was one of the only places with outdoor sitting around the whole harbour so gets very busy but with great atmosphere. The food... More

Amazing value for wonderful food. Obviously a victim of its own success. Poor Jonathan the waiter was overwhelmed by customers and working all on his own bless him and trying to be so polite under so much stress. Having to wait a long time was fine as absolutely superb good and so reasonably priced. I recommend any one here, but... More

We are just finishing a 12 day stay in St Ives returning to the Sloop Inn again. It is a great place to stay right on the harbour front, which our room overlooked. The inn is full of character both in the rooms and bars and restaurants. The staff remain for a long time, and give us a warm welcome... More
