My sister booked the table and we were seated by the window. We had a nice view of the river. Our drinks and starters were quickly ordered and arrived shortly. The carvery had a good choice of meats (4), a fish and also a vegetarian dish. The main dish was served to us and we added the vegetables we wanted.
But our plates were still not cleared so we piled them in the middle. I enjoyed my meal (the lamb) but I though my mothers braised steak was dry. A different waitress cleared our plates and although we had not complained, apologized for neglecting us. Not understanding the system we asked about desserts and were directed to the desserts cart. We were not asked if we wanted another drink from the bar and later, if we wanted a coffee (although there were coffee cups on the table).
We will probably eat there again. St Ives is a loverly place to visit. No one complained about the food. The service is not much different from other places we have been! Now I know it was a carvery and not a buffet I will have a starter!
