We were warmly welcomed to this local pub, which is just off the promenade. We ordered the Friday night special - 2 rump steaks, with all the trimmings and a bottle of wine - all for £30. The steak was beautifully cooked, just as we liked it - medium rare. The meat was from a St Just butcher - a... More

A wonderful pub, such friendly staff and the roast beef was cooked to perfection and presented so well, more than you expect from a pub. Also the whole place was spotlessly clean. A must visit, we will most certainly be returning to also try out the rest of the menu.

We ate at the Navy Inn twice during our stay in Penzance. Both meals were very good. Fresh seafood and tradition Cornish cooking. Service was great and friendly.

An unexpected treat - we walked past almost everyday, saw the menu and decided to go. Short menu but lovely food and great atmosphere.

Went here with my girlfriend for something to eat based on recommendation of the guest house owner. What a lovely little pub/restaurant. The service was very friendly and attentive, and the foood was amazing. Pickled mackerel was delicious and so was the monkfish. Good selection of spirits and beers.

Twice we've been to the Navy and both times we've come away totally satisfied with the quality and value for the lovely food The scallops were lovely and for a birthday treat we had a lobster which was completely amazing.

Very friendly service as soon as I walked in the door. The food was great and the atmosphere was lovely - just like you would want a Navy Inn to be like. I'd eat here again.
