We have been to St Ives on holiday for many years now, I took my children when they were small and now they are grown up and take their own children there. The Sloop Inn has always been one of our favourite places to eat and drink and soak in the atmosphere of St Ives. However on our last visit,... More

We loved an evening inside or outside this traditional dog friendly Inn. The real ale and ciders were great, especially 'Old Rosie'. The food was good and served very quickly for an extremely busy pub. A must visit if you go to St Ives

The Sloop Inn plays a significant part in the history of St Ives, but readers will appreciate discovering it for themselves. The most noticeable thing about this pub is that it is extraordinarily busy. The outdoor seating is almost always jam-packed in good weather, so we were confined to the saloon. Even so, the Sloop is a pleasant place to... More

We stopped here for a cooked breakfast which was great value. The service was quite sullen though. The interior of the pub is very traditional - low ceilings, stone floors, hidden away corners etc. This would be a great experience for people looking to see a typical old pub. Great location right on the quayside.

I have visited St Ives for years and love it every year I go. Many a night in spent in the sloop drinking rattler, eating their fabulous food (cornish trio is a must) and soaking up the infectious atmosphere. I decided to go back down for the bank holiday and thought i would stay in the sloop, as I love... More

We have just returned from the Sloop inn and booked the rooms over looking the harbour. We took advantage of their breakfast being served in your room. The food was lovely and staff were excellent. The views were amazing and we stayed for 3 nights. It is reccomended to talk to the hotel about parking before you go as it... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Our room was the boatman it over looked the harbour. Breakfast is served in the room at a little table in the window. We loved its central position. The staff are all friendly nothing too much trouble. The room was plenty big enough for us clean and tidy. We would recomend the sloop inn to every... More

Only went in for drinks, a couple of times and no meal, but the place needs sorting out. I was politely asked to move the kids to the back bar which isn't a problem because not everyone wants to have a pint in front of 9 year olds but it's grotty and crowded, so we ended up out the back... More
