First of all i would like to start this reveiw off by saying do not listen to the bad reveiws off people who obvioulsy have a bee in thier bonnet! and are just picking at the most trivial things.
I am i local in St. Ives and have visited The Cook House when it was a restaurant and must say the food was absolutely sublime. It was that nice i recommended to all friends and family and returned a few times. We were seated by the window overlooking the sea and harbour which was lovely and staff were always friendly, well presented and competent.
Now the management have decided to change The Cook House into an up market cafe/ sit in or takeaway pastie shop. Where you can get anything from a large selection of hot and cold baguettes, pizzas, fish and chips to cream teas, cakes and coffes. I have had the fish and chips which was £6 on the lunch menu and it was lovely. One of THE best fish and chips i have had and the portion size was just right for me. Dont forget the baguettes too, i have often had a few different ones of these (all gorgeous), when passing by i will quikly grab one through the takeaway window, i must also mention the coffee i had (decaff) was also really nice.The staff are friendly as always and i beleive the prices to be spot on and very compatible.
To finish of i will say to anyone who is thinking of coming to St. Ives i would say try for yourself. And to anyone who has left a bad reveiw and are just nit picking! give this place a break it is newly established and is in my opinion doing brilliantly. The work that they have done on the place might not be noticable to you but if you had seen what it was before you would be greatful to be sitting in a clean and bright place.
