Visited midweek, starters were out of this world delicious (fennel tacos, wow, smoked Mack pate delightful, feta filo cigars scrummy). Chef really knows favours, waitress incredibly friendly, pub was warm and cosy. Mains also lovely...We will be back!

I am writing this review in the hope that when we do go back there will have been a huge improvement in both service and standards. In however many years of visiting here and many fantastic memories it was very disappointing to leave on Sunday with such a poor experience. From booking it took three attempts to get someone to...

Been here a few times for lunches whilst on an annual winter visit to St Ives but made it a priority to come here for a dinner, this was our first evening visit. You could easily drive past this place without giving it a second glance but that would be a mistake. It has been sympathetically restored inside and has... More

On the main road out of St Ives - we walked from main St Ives 'town' and it took less than 30 minutes, but had a good pace, uphill all the way there, and on a main road with no pavement in places so perhaps not best recommended in hindsight! Bus stop right opposite. We had Sunday lunch and it... More

Sat in the front room service was polite and efficient. The starters were excellent, in fact they were so good anything that followed was bound to disappoint. The blue cheese doughnuts were delicious. Mains were good, my steak came exactly as ordered but the pepper sauce was over salted. The hand cut French fries were good. Desserts matched starters in...

Had heard really good reviews, sadly they were all out of date, radiators not working, food unimaginative, waitress in the wrong job

Every time we go to St Ives we cannot leave without a Sunday lunch at The Halsetown Inn. I'm yet to come across a Sunday lunch that beats it - anywhere. Loads of meat, loads of veg (love the cute rustic carrot they give you) and *drumroll*.... CHEESY LEEKS. Yes, cheesy leeks - so good. So delicious. Always leave room... More
