Description: The Hub St Ives is situated in the heart of the town, we are a well established feature on the harbour front and an essential stop off for great coffee, fabulous cakes and amazing food. In the evening we are the ideal place for fantastic burgers or just to sip cocktails or sample one of our local and international craft beers and watch the world go by. We have a modern menu of really delicious burgers made in house from aged Cornish rare breed beef supplied by the fabulous Phillip Warrens of Launceston. Lobster Rolls when in season and daily seasonal specials. Our hot dogs are New York style but produced in the UK using 100% free range pork, oak smoked and seasoned with paprika, nutmeg & black pepper. Our burger and hot dog buns are produced by artisan 'Baker Tom' and delivered fresh everyday. As you can see our food is something we are fiercely proud of. Breakfast served between 9am and 11am Main menu served from 12noon Kitchen closes 9pm Bar open until late

Hub looks right out over the harbour, making it the perfect place to while away the hours, whatever the weather or time of day. The burgers are fantastic.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I have visited the Hub several times and all I can say is that the burgers are of outstanding quality and taste. Whenever I am in St Ives I pay this lovely restaurant a visit. The location is perfect, prices very reasonable, the relaxed atmosphere is really inviting and the service is great. I usually treat myself to their tasty hot chocolate after my meals - served with a generous portion of whipped cream and marshmellows. Yum! This place is highly recommended!

“Burgerlisious”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have eaten here a few times since the summer, most recently late December. It offers consistent good service, the same staff and a great welcome. The booth style tables are comfy and you never feel hurried to leave. The Big Kahuna burger is something really special, makes you feel a lot naughty, and yet you feel compelled to go and do it again next time! Best of all it is dog friendly downstairs, perfect for a post dog walking treat (not for dogs!) Even doggies get a warm welcome! Top place, great food, fantastic setting. My teenage daughter and friends loved hanging out here in the evenings during our summer and autumn holidays :)

“Hub Box, Truro - burger heaven!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We have visited the pop up burger joint, Hub Box, in Truro twice now and both times it has been AMAZING! Delicious burgers and hot dogs, very authentic to the american taste and totally scrummy. Please don't take Hub Box away! Or please open a permenant burger restaurant in Truro! So good! Very friendly staff too and quick service.

“Great Location. OK Food”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Had A burger meal here with the wife, the experience was just about ok. You cannot argue about the location, superb so I will move onto the food and service.

Yep good service too, but the table and seats were not very clean and two old paper menus to read.

Now the food, it is trying to compete with Blas on the burger front (this was mentioned in a recent local paper review), The Hub wins hands down on location and premises, but is miles off on the food. The prices are about the same, the burgers are not. I had a Hub 7 oz burger, but it was tiny, either it wasn't 7 oz of beef to start with or it shrunk by over half when cooking. It tasted ok, a little salty, but seemed poor value for money.

Great place for a drink though!
