Reviewed January 5, 2014

Food was nice with plenty to choose from. Park outside for the kids to keep them occupied whilst waiting for food. Great for families and would recommend!

Dear guest,

Thank you for a compliment on quality and selection of our food. It is absolutely fantastic to hear that your kids enjoyed the visit as well! Nevertheless, we try and do not take the location of our pub for granted. Instead, the whole team is dedicated to provide the best value for money for our patrons. You might be pleased to hear that this year - on top of free newspapers available - we will provide table top and outdoor games for kids and families in order to maximize the fun element whilst visiting The Bluff Inn.

Kind regards

Damian

“Great views, good food”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great place to come for lunch or evening meal or just a drink, prices are reasonable and will suit all budgets. We visited on several occasions during the week for both lunch and an evening meal. The views are brilliant. There is a childrens arcade on site to so they can play whilst meals are being prepared and also a pool table for a small fee. Service is friendly and efficient and staff are happy to help. You can see the surfers in the sea depending on the waves of course.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking your time to provide some feedback. I'm sure it will help others decide whether The Bluff Inn is a place worth visiting. I'm particularly happy to hear that you reckognize our offer as reasonably priced, which adds to the overall feel of the place hanging over the cliffs and overlooking St. Ives Bay.
Our team is indeed friendly and efficient, taking pride in what we try to achieve. I wish you remembered some names so I could thank tchem individually!

Wish the winter is kind for you and hope to see you in near future.

Kind regards

Damian

“end of season”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

went there with my family of six, all menus out and tables. Sat down decided to order, tried to order. The family promotion meals were no longer available, kids menu was not availble was handed a menu with loads crossed off in felt-tip pen! Thats what they had left! Because it was the end of the season and they were cleaning out the fridges!!!! Yum!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a drag down to the Bluff Inn and for us a drag back and a drive to Hayle for some excellent fare! It is a credit to Haven that the rest of our holiday was great and we were not made to feel 'end of season', may I just say if its not up to delivering food don't promote it when you arrive at reception!!!!

Dear guest,

It is with a great regret reading your comment, but I want to thank you wholeheartedly for letting us know of your thoughts. It is very important knowing what we can improve upon, so that we take our guest's opinions very seriously.

Indeed, at the time of your visit it was the very last weekend of our trading. It is the unfortunate nature of seasonal business that forces us to limit the menu offering in attempt to minimize the waste. As mentioned in your comment we tried and make it clear that certain dishes were not available. The aim was to save the time and hassle for our guests like yourselves, but it seems we didn't try hard enough :(

As a manager I can promise that when the time comes again we will print our limited menu out properly and ensure our guests will be informed on arrival!

Kind regards

Damian

Dear Diane,

I am happy to find out you've had a good time here at The Bluff Inn, even if coming just for a drink! It is true the views are breathtaking and hopefully our extensive rinks menu makes it possible to meet the needs of even the most discerning drinkers. From freshly ground coffee, popular cocktails, wide selection of wine and spirits to local Cask Marquee Accredited Ales...

Hope seeing you again soon,

Damian

“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We weren't expecting much but the staff were pleasant and helpful and the food was very good. We visited The Bucket Of Blood on another evening and were very disappointed. We should have returned here!
