Didn't have the opportunity to eat here but the gin and cider range were brilliant for such a small town, wish our local was this good, also had a great pub quiz on Tuesday (or Monday) worth entering I found it quite hard but team mates found it easy, so pitched well, inclusive without being too simple. Very friendly landlord.... More

We visited St Marys Island, Isle of Scilly for a day trip on Saturday 20 May 2017; booked a table at the Old Town Inn to celebrate my partner's birthday. What a fabulous experience. They greeted us like old friends, even though it was our first visit and made us feel very welcome. Food and service were excellent; I had... More

Have been here several times and impressed with the food - would highly recommend their burgers! It's good quality, fresh, pub food in generous portions. The managers/owners behind the bar are very friendly and helpful. However I would really like it if there were more bands/events on as there is plenty of space and it would draw more people in....

We visited this pub several times and the welcome from the owners was fantastic. They could not do enough for us. The food was excellent, the best Scampi I have ever had and the crab sandwiches were amazing too. Definitely one not to miss.

Great little place (from the outside), small garden with benches outside. Deceptively​ huge and light inside. Massive gin and rum menus, and craft cider menu as well as a small food menu. The food menu isn't extensive, however the food available is beautifully made with fresh ingredients. I had the best burger ever (the OTI Burger). The meat was succulent... More

Called into the Old Town Inn several times over our holiday week and we felt some of the recent reviews are maybe a little unfair. This is a pub that serves the local people clearly however they are very willing to serve a weary walker/island visitor with a good standard of traditional pub food and good beer. On our last...

Would not recommend this place to anyone. The young man behind the bar was rude and have you ever been to a place that's sells food but won't make you a coffee shocking

StrudelIOS, Owner at Old Town Inn, responded to this review

Sorry that you have a negative view of the Old Town Inn. We do serve coffee to those customers who have eaten. We do not serve tea and coffee as a matter of course and this would take the barman away from the bar. As it was winter we do not carry excessive number of staff. More

Well, maybe it was the end of the season, but we didn't feel we were especially welcome when we dropped in for dinner on a rainy Saturday night. The food was OK, standard pub fare and quite well done, and the service was polite, but we felt slightly as though we'd walked in wearing the colours of the wrong football... More

We are sorry that you had a poor experience at the Old Town Inn. It would be really useful to write to me and let me know just exactly what happened and what made you feel unwanted or uncomfortable. It is a pity that you did not mention this at the time of your visit. More
