“Very Disappointing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Compared with other establishments in same group this was a total let down. At 4.30pm on Thursday 21st March They only had 2 choices left from the menu. Nothing to say only a limited menu was being used. As an example Ham, egg and chips could not be prepared as they had NO EGGS. We tried 4 other items before we found anything and 3 types of beer that were advertised had run out. Not a great start for a new venture.

“Not brilliant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The food is fairly average and doesn't seem very fresh. The staff are not overly polite. The place has no atmosphere and is dull and dark.

“Nice and clean, properly run unlike Penzance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I'm used to the Penzance "Spoons" which is very dirty, badly run and more like some kind of illegal back street club, matched only by some of patrons who frequent it!

So when I tried the St. Ives one I was very happy to see it's CLEAN brightly lit and has friendly bar staff.

I wouldn't mind eating in the Hain Line, I think I would be pleased however I haven't tried the food myself so I can't rate it yet for sure.

But the beer is fresh! It's the only bar in Cornwall where i've seen the pipes being cleaned at the end of a night and anyway, who'd have thought someone could turn Iso Bar into such a bright place?

“Rarther pleasant!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Having walked around St Ives for,what seemed for 25 hours & popping into various pubs along our journey,we decided to have 'one more' drink here before going back to the hotel for dinner... Glad we did. Lovely decor,atmosphere & pleasant bar staff made it an enjoyable couple of hours!! Stayed for the 'curry club' menu & was pleasantly surprised!! Much better than ours in Cheltenham. Plus it saved me a few quid,as it was valentines day!! Cheers guys!! You did well!!!!!
Ps. Can't select actual date but it definitely was V day!! :)
