“A find and a half!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for a bite to eat after a full day of walking round St Ives. The seafood was to die for. Truly awesome and so reasonably priced. Make sure you push yourself to try the seafood, it surpasses pub food and was awesome!

“Excellent Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We recently stayed here for the Christmas period. Although our room was a tad on the small side. It was still comfortable. The evenings meal were extremely good value. We could select anything off the menu, paying £15 for three courses. Food was well cooked and presented, well worth what we paid for.

“Amazing Seafood, welcoming atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We have just returned from St Ives after our honeymoon. We spent a few hours here and the food was exceptional. I've tasted a few Thai green curries in my time but this was out of this world. Massive portions of fresh seafood, prawns so big and mussels so tasty. It was so nice! The place is very welcoming, staff were very responsive and thoughtful, a great atmosphere! I cannot wait to go back for a curry! Lovely place.

“Absolutely delicious lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It was a wonderfully cold and crisp day that we decided to pop into St Ives for lunch. Most of our other haunts were closed for lunch so we decided on The Sloop, a famous, if not infamous old pub in the centre of St Ives. The staff were very friendly and the food was perfect. I had fillets of sea bass with chillies, ginger and spring onions with a crushed potato mash with coriander. It was simply perfect and just as good as any Michelin starred restaurant in Cornwall. My husband had cod fillets with new potatoes and mixed salad which he said was equally as delicious. It may be 'only a pub' but the food surpassed itself. We also had a lovely treacle tart with Cornish cream and a blackberry and apple crumble. Yum!

“Bernie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have frequented the sloop inn on a number of occasions and have stayed there for a few weekends. It has character that you won't find anywhere else, the food is good and they have a good selection of beers, cider, wines and spirits, you can sit outside and watch the world go by. It does get really busy but this is a testament to it's popularity. Xmas there is my favourite time, and new years eve, everyone in fancy dress... I look forward to many more years visiting
