Stopped off here for a drink in the sun before heading home on Sunday evening and was really blown away. Walking distance from St Ives town, just over the ancient bridge. The riverside location was amazing, great views of the boats moored nearby from the grassy gardens that went right down to the edge of the water. Lovely and clean gardens and garden furniture. Opted for a bar snack as the restaurant had just seated a table of 40 (Vanguard917's party!) and so rather than wait ages, we ate at a table in the bar, open doors made it feel like it was outdoors.
However, the food was fab! Huge portions, well cooked and presented, it has been a long time since I had eaten a decent home made burger, and it was worth waiting for! Mother's fish and chips were perfect, crispy and crunchy and fresh.
We ended a lovely day out by looking at all the classics in the car park! Sorry we didn't get to Springfields on the day but just the cars we saw in the car park made up for it!!!
The hotel itself looked perfect, on the river, lovely views, great big car park and gardens. Might consider booking for Fathers day lunch!
