We go to Cornwall 1-2 times per year on holiday and one of the activities we always plan in is a trip here for lunch. The menu is great, with loads of fresh produce, and the cheddar, bacon, onion and tomato tart is to die for! They have a large selection of cakes, some gluten free, and the team there... More

The best time (I think) to visit Cornwall is in the winter when its cold and cosy and tourist season has well and truly died down (I grew up in Cornwall and grew to love winter). The Tearoom as been frequented by us on many occasion when we aimlessly wander around St Ives during the winter. We always wrap up... More

When you're wife is gluten free and your son is dairy free, finding places to indulge in a cream tea can be tricky. Never fear the Tearoom St Ive's will deliver. Not just scones but other sweat and savoury options too. Coffee is good here too, we're very spoilt at home by great coffee shops and often disappointed when traveling,... More

Visited for a quick lunch and wasn't disappointed. Wonderful goats cheese salad and scones to die for. Very much recommended!

If you get up early enough and catch the tide whilst it's high complement your efforts with breakfast at The Tearoom. This is the best place to have breakfast in St Ives as far as I'm aware. Although get ready for a fight for an outside table if you get there after 10am. The poached eggy things are glorious and... More

This is one of the best restaurants I've EVER eaten. Four of us ate here, four different dishes and all of them were absolutely delicious, especially my guinea fowl supreme, I did go with intentions of eating fish but saw guinea fowl on the next table and couldn't resist it. The staff are so friendly, chatty and obliging and the... More

Popped in here today for some lunch. Very pleased as they are a dog friendly place, so your pooch can re hydrate whilst you do. Staff were spot on, food was delicious! Highly recommend the mackerel on sour bread and a cream tea :-)

Location with views great. The afternoon tea was spot on. Scones lovely and warm. Clotted cream amazing and the jam was just right for spreading. The tea is very nice and would make a nice gift too. Can't wait to go again.

On the main harbour stretch this is a lovely place. If you can get a seat then you and your dog can sit outside and people watch. Inside is quaint and the service excellent. Really good local produce. Had a large bowl of moules with bread and a glass of prosecco for lunch. Really delicious. I would definitely recommend this.

We visited here as a group of 4 with two dogs. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was superb. Fresh, tasty, local produce. Highly recommend the crab, seafood platter and goats cheese salad.
