I'm following two negative reviews, with regret. The food was fine, not special, the service poor (actually, rude at one point) and the dining room very cold - the single radiator not working. I feel as if I've lost a friend. So sad.

It is not often I write or say anything negative, however I feel I need to air my opinion on just how much this lovely restaurant has changed since the new owners have taken over. We used to love the atmosphere, the excellent quality food and friendly warm service from ALL members of staff, ALL of which is sadly lacking... More

We used to LOVE this place, but it's changed hands again and it's just not the same. The food was good, but not brilliant. We all mentioned a lack of seasoning in most of the dishes we had. The main issue was the total lack of atmosphere and the service. It wasn't very busy, there were a few tables in,... More

Cheeky little Wednesday night dinner. Missed out last year as it was closed so pleased to find that the food was as good as before. Great veggie chili for me and a burger for my wife. Dogs made welcome. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Good food at great prices. Highly recommended.

Went here recently for Sunday lunch as a family of 4 and were very underwhelmed by the quality of the food and service. We all opted for the roast beef or pork and were slightly alarmed when it turned up within 10 minutes of ordering. Most of it was pretty tasteless and underseasoned. The roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding were... More

Ate here at lunchtime last week with the family. The food was very good, hake, beef cheeks, veggie dishes all tasty, cleared our plates. Unfortunately food is a bit pricey for a lunchtime treat. Wine is over priced and not very good, especially the Malbec at £21.50 which is bottled in this country.

Me and my partner called in to this pub on our day out and had been recommended. The food and service was very good and had a lovely atmosphere. I would highly recommend this pub and being local to us, we will be returning.

Pleasant atmosphere with tables in 'little rooms'. Menu slightly limited, but what was there was very good. Could not manage desserts. Staff friendly and attentive. Dog friendly.

Located just outstanding of St.Ives, The Halsetown Inn is a gem of a pub and eatery. The food is imaginative and beautifully cooked and presented. There is a buzz about the place and a sense of pride in what is put on the plates. Small bar area with open fire,great Sunday lunch and friendly staff..one of the best places to... More

Smashing pub with excellent home cooked food away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives, plenty of parking.
