We visited The Searoom for lunch and tried the Pâté board. We enjoyed smoked salmon pâté and mackerel pâté with toast and a delicious side salad and dressing. We enjoyed the food so much at The Searoom that we came back the next day for...More

Popped in for breakfast before walking the coast path to Zennor. Super speedy service with a smile. Scrambled eggs on toast cooked to perfection, great coffee and cute tea cosies! Definitely will return for lunch and they are open in the evening too!

Really lovely and friendly staff. No problems providing a jug of hot water to heat up my baby's bottle. Cornish cream tea was delicious. Would recommend.

I had a crab sandwich and my wife had a crab salad. Both were superb! The service was genuinely friendly and the location on the waterfront is excellent. I would highly recommend the Searoom to anyone visiting St Ives.

This place has breakfasts to die for. You have to have the Eggs Benedict either with Salmon or Bacon, served on a freshly baked cheese scone and homemade hollandaise sauce that is thick, yellow and utterly delicious. The best views of St Ives harbour -...More

Yes there is parking about 5 mins away behind the Sloop Inn, if that's full try the Island car park which is about 10 mins away, take plenty of change with you for parking.

The Searoom is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All our cakes, scones and tarts are made by hand in our kitchen and we use only the best local meat, fish and vegetables in our restaurant. Almost everything on the menu is also available gluten free. We have the most amazing Harbour view!
