A wonderful building, we came in here on our first night and got very merry, listened to some great live music and danced. Beer selection was great, the beer garden is brilliant, always packed out. Had lunch in here and had possibly the best fishcakes I've ever had, I would love to come back here

Excellent beer , lovely food and very attentive staff!! Cann't find anything wrong with our visit to this very good pub. Went with another couple and they too enjoyed their stay. We had the Thai Fish Curry , Pan Fied Hake and the 10oz Rib-Eye Steak. All done to perfection. The Ale included Doombar and Jail on tap with a...

Probably my favourite pub of all time. It has kept all of the character that so many have lost in the UK in their pursuit of serving great food, which I may add the Sloop does. On arrival in st Ives and after some torturous traffic my brother and I were thirsty tired and cold (it was November). St Ives...

Frequent visitors to St Ives, mostly in the summer months. Often passed by wanting to stop but put off by the fact its so popular that it is almost impossible to get in. Winter visit and easy to get in and well worth it. The food was superb and very reasonably priced. Service also very friendly and welcoming. Price of...

We have been here many times but took a short break a couple of weeks ago and came here for lunch. Yet again not disappointed, the service was efficient and friendly and the atmosphere was warm and cosy. I just have to mention the scampi as they were the best I have ever tasted! I would also like to say...

Can highly recommend this pub. Comfortable, friendly, great atmosphere, with wonderful food. Excellent top class service provided by walming, welcoming friendly staff. Dogs welcomed in all bars. A wide selection of alcohol and a varied menu satisfies the pallet.

i can see some complaints on here, but we have a totally different experience. Atmosphere is wonderful, staff attentive and they have all my favourite drinks. Came with partner Dawn and collie Mist, and enjoyed well cooked meals both lunchtime (an enormous club sandwich) and evenings (steak deal, BBQ ribs, plus others). We just can't fault it!

We have visited numerous times over the last 20 years or so and always found it to be pleasant for a drink. This year we visited with our 8 week old baby! When entering the pub we were abruptly told no prams it can go in the corridor, not helpful when you have a sleeping baby. May I also point...

Visited here for a drink and received a great welcome. There's benches outside so you can chill and watch the world go by. The food is nice with a varied menu and not to pricey, with lots of local produce.
