We ate here several times on our weeks stay in St Ives, the menu is very varied to suit everyone, portion size & value where fantastic. This restaurant is always very busy but as its so large you only have a short wait for a table.

A very busy cafe right on the beach in St Ives. We found a table by the window and ordered food as in the picture and a glass of Pimms each. The food was really good and the Pimms was full of fruit and really refreshing.

What a great place. There are many restaurants in St Ives but few are as affordable as here, not only do they charge a fair price for a meal the portions are very generous as well.
Take a few minutes to look at the pics on the walls to see some of the shipwrecks that have happened around the bay.
The pub gets busy so think about that as you plan your day.
Oh yeah, try the local ales they have on sale :) while you gaze across the harbour.

since the renovations in November last year,this pub has really taken on a new look with its bright spacious interior, with is in keeping with its roots on the harbourside at St Ives. On both occasions we ate there it was very busy with no available tables, we were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to a seat to await a table an advised of possible waiting times. on both occasions we were seated quickly. Although extremely busy all staff were very friendly and willing to assist or speak to us. The manager was very much on the ball and we were very impressed with the way he handled the the whole operation, food waiting times were very good and the food quality, at least what we had was again very good. what a transformation from lasy year, highly recommended.
