We decided to return later the singer was very easy listening and played a variety of songs he even played requests. We noticed a... More

Great dog friendly pub. Food was reasonably priced, delicious, well presented and served quickly. Reasonably choice of traditional food. Staff friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend this establishment that had a wide selection of real ales with lots of very interesting historical photographs all round the walls of st.ives.

We have visited The Union Inn many times over the years but never got round to writing a review. We had Sunday roast, beef this time and it was amazing just as every other time before. Portions are generous, very tender beef, fresh cooked vegetables and a yorkshire pudding all served piping hot. An absolute gem of a place and... More

The price of the food was also very good. There is a good friendly and warm atmosphere in this pub so when you are in st Ives... More

Arrived around 7.30PM and ordered the cod with Mediterranean veg, so tasty and piping hot. Unfortunately the band turned up while we were eating and propped open the door while they bought in their instruments, which took a while and slightly spoiled the meal by reducing the temperature of the surroundings and consequently the meal, so make sure you find...

Don't be put off by the slightly sad interior. Inside is a warm welcome . They have lots of really old photos of st Ives over the pub. This pub does a fantastic crab sandwich with lovely squishy fresh bread.

Stopped here for lunch - just a quick snack the intention but the crab sandwiches were huge with enough tasty crab for two servings at least. A pint of Betty Stoggs, a warm fire and quiet but friendly and efficient barstaff, what more could you ask on a stormy day.
