I really like this pub. It's unpretentious and offers good beer and a fair menu of food. Visited on their build a steak night which sadly had to be modified due to rain, but the food though expensive, was still very pleasant.

Stopped here for lunch whilst holidaying in St Ives, it was well worth the visit. Very tasty ciabatta roll with plenty of filling. Attentive staff. Great value for money. I would highly recommend.
