. Spit and sawdust at its best . Toilets !!!!! Vile! Blue toilet duck fluid all over seats and nothing to dry hands with . You couldn’t even clean it up to use . Disgusting place .

Turned up to watch the CLF, place stank and got started on. Certainly looked to be a locals pub from the look of the clientele. Plenty of nicer pubs in St Ives to attend.

Visited the Three Ferrets with my wife for the first time on Monday evening (after leaving the terrible 'Hain Line' around the corner.) Met some great locals and had a great night. Will def. be visiting again. Highly recommended pub!

As a band The Ferrets isn't one you'd think of as a gigging pub but we played there a few weeks back and the place was buzzing even for a Tuesday night, full of character and amazing people, Ignore the bad press it gets because...More

It's good to know that if you wander around long enough you can still find pubs that haven't turned into gastro chain pubs that all look the same. Proper pub still with character & characters and a juke box.
