Lunch date with a girl friend! What a treat. We shared a starter, the duck & chorizo bruschetta, simple but really tasty, the hoi sin glaze a perfect touch! For main course we both had the crab special, also really tasty & presented well. Service efficient & friendly! Thank you

Great pub, lovely food, decent price, cracking view. Can get a little noisy when the football/rugby is on, but then if you want to watch the football and or rugby (they had both at the same time on our last visit) then you're quids in.

Always pop in for a drink and a bite when we are in town

We called into this pub on a Fri and Sat night and both nights had a really good atmosphere (again it was the st Ives music and arts festival, so not sure if live music normally on or not). We saw 2 local bands who were both good. We didn't eat so can't comment on food, but would recommend a visit if u fancy a few jars. Also has football on for anyone interested

From the outside this looked like an 'old man's pub' but once inside we quite surprised how nice it was, the decor & atmosphere was very nice. We ate here twice, firstly a Sunday carvery which was extremely busy (but we arrived early and were first ones in the queue!). This was one of the best carverys we'd ever had, which was then made obvious why it was so popular. We then ate here for lunch & had good food again. Would highly recommend!
