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

Coming to the Sloop is a must in St Ives and we have been numerous times and sat outside and enjoyed the views and generally just people watched. Its hard to get a seat outside and even harder to give up once you have are comfy. We had never eaten in there before but seen many people doing so and... More

Nice atmosphere but absolutely heaving outside. Food is slightly better than average pub grub. Probably wouldn't visit again...not because it's bad but just because there are lots of better places to choose from.

I have been going to St Ives since 1974. My first pint in this pub was in 1978. I have a special place in my heart for this place! It grieves me to say that it is living on it's reputation and the fact that people will go there because of what and where it is. The staff are now... More

Ideal for couples and groups wishing to explore the town, surf or hike. If you love live music, a good pint and a lively outgoing Inn, this place is ideally situated, right on the harbour front. If you want somewhere quiet then look elsewhere. A group of us had three great nights here. The live music was especially fun. It... More

We stayed in the Bow Spirit room behind the pub, above the Upper deck bar. The room was basic but clean. The view across the harbour was perfect. Downsides. As St Ives has such small roads, the delivery trucks deliver the beer to the pub very early each morning. About 6:30am I believe. The draymen don't take much care in... More
