Over the past 20 years, things have got a bit better for vegetarians and vegans. Puzzled looks and offers like: "We could do you a mushroom omelette" have given way to menus with some form of goat's cheese or risotto. But let's face it, these are still almost an afterthought, held in reserve to be dashed off in the microwave... More

We visited the Bean Inn after almost two years of waiting to travel to Cornwall again! We were greeted by extremely friendly staff who couldn't have seemed any happier to serve us! The music was great although, they need to make the CD rotation a little longer as we heard all the songs twice! The selection of food was great,... More

A great vegetarian meal at the Bean inn. The food was fabulous. We had our 2 children with us and they loved it too. Great veggie restaurants are hard to find.

The food at this place is to die for! Excellent veggie choices, I recommend the grilled halloumi with sweet potato wedges as a starter, delicious! The severs were lovely and the restaurant is very well decorated and atmospheric. However... though I was not particularly bothered as I had good company the service was terribly slow- I thought our mains had... More

The Bean Inn is a real hidden gem just five minutes bus ride from St. Ives. The food is excellent, with a good selection of vegetarian choices. Your taste buds will zing! Try the sweet potato and grilled halloumi and Moroccan cous cous. The cook is nothing short of wizard with her use of fresh ingredients, spices and herbs. Highly... More

Ours was a group of four booked last minute because everywhere else was already full. SO glad they were because I really loved this place !! The food was amazing and everyone (even the meat eaters) really enjoyed their meals! SO nice to have such a wide choice of vegetarian meals, after usually having one or two options. We will... More

I had Mediterranean roasted vegetables with couscous and it was delicious. My wife chose the spaghetti with pesto sauce. I was surprised at the attention to the food. The meal was sumptuous and then came the coffee. My wife loved the coffee so the chef n team gave her some to take away. I would recommend this place to all,... More

Really wonderful food enjoyed by vegans and meat eaters alike. There is a wide choice on the menu, the food is very well prepared and delicious and the staff are all friendly. The mud pie, which was suitable for vegans, was magnificent - not too sweet, full of flavour and available with either clotted cream or high quality vegan ice-cream!
