“Gutted but happy”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

I've loved on Falmouth for 3 years and gutted I've only just found this gem. I'm a lover of a Sunday lunch with a bottle of red, having tried a few places in falmouth most Sundays, this came about doing a search for carvery (within walking distance), between 12 & 3 on a Sunday the seaview does a carvery with 5 meats beef, pork, Turkey, gammon and lamb with all the trimmings...to top it off a chef that does good portions. Sitting in the window with a bottle of Rioja Sunday's don't get much better. I'll be back....regularly !!!!

“Pub grub and so much more”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Ohhh what a lovely place, delicious local produce of a quality superior to the restaurants with fantastic staff and friendly service. Perhaps a sing along, perhaps a cosy drink by the fire perhaps an intimate meeting with your loved ones and friends. Proper Cornish people and welcoming oldy worldy lounge

“Mediocre Sunday roast accompanied with grumpy service”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

My partner and I thought we'd try somewhere different for Sunday lunch so we went to the Seaview Inn. We had heard the roast here was really good, even for vegetarians (which we are) so thought we'd try it out.
We ordered our drinks and then mentioned we wanted the roast but were vegetarians. The bar-man looked at us as if we'd just ruined his afternoon and said "that's fine, but you do realise all you'll be getting a plate of veg?". We went ahead with it anyway and he kindly ordered ahead for the chef to mix up a veggie gravy for us and told us that when it was ready he'd let us know and we could go and help ourselves. When the gravy was done, we went to the carvery and asked the chef if we get the plates from here (as couldn't see any to grab). He just said "well what do you want?" and we explained that the vegetarian gravy he mixed up was ours, "Oh. Well you should have told me", which we obviously just had and he gave us a couple of plates. Pretty sure if we were eating meat we would have still needed plates to eat off. Good start...
The cauliflower cheese was really tasty as were the potatoes. The rest of the veg was not. The broccoli was mush and fell apart as if had been sat in lukewarm water for ages so had no taste at all. The parsnips were really hard and the rest I can't even remember. Maybe the meat is really good but I've definitely had better elsewhere.

Also, while we were eating, a lady went up to the barman and asked if they were still serving food. He groaned and pointed at the carvery through the hatch "well you can see food, can't you?". Maybe this is their "sense of humour" with the regulars but the woman clearly was not and she was perfectly polite. The lady behind the bar, however, seemed really smiley and approachable.

It's worth paying a couple of quid more in another pub rather than dipping into your pocket for pretty standard food and grumpy service. Maybe they were having a bad Sunday and don't normally get their knickers in a twist.

“Just around the corner”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

Stopped in for a pint and a bite to eat. Barkeep was friendly and helpful for our trip to St Ives. Food was great and the beer was nice and cold.

“Ill be back !!!”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

Had spent a while wondering where to go out for Sunday lunch in Falmouth .... Tried another pub in town offering a carvery which wasn't really anything to write home about so thought we would give the seaview a try...

All the meat was cooked well beef pork lamb and gammon ( medium rare beef ) not well done . However if that's not how you like it there was well done available

All in all the price is right and the quality is there and we will be back for Mother's Day and the six nations England game..
