Had a fabulous meal here. The staff are all very friendly and the surrounds most appealing. We had a lovely table by the window looking out over the harbour. Nice big portions and very reasonably priced. Ideal.

Very helpful, attentive, friendly staff (staff from many other restraunts could learn a thing or two from them!). Very enjoyable meal, cracking view of harbour. Will be going back when in st ives again.

Been coming to st Ives for a number of years. My first experience was a dark pub with below average food.

Not anymore. The decor has been lightened and staff really friendly and can't do enough for you.

Food is far better and a great view of the harbour. The Sunday car very looked ace but didn't have enough to sample it.
