A quiet Wednesday afternoon. Convivial peaceful atmosphere. Lovely beer thoughtfully served by a barman who enjoys what he does. I had Exmoor Mild. A great example of its kind. Dark. Flavoursome. Touch of sweetness yet bitter and with depth. A definitely must visit place!

We asked for a cider but didn't know which one we wanted hoping the barman would recommend something but we were called stupid idiots because we didn't know what we wanted. No pub who have staff who think they can speak to customers like that...More

A very nice pub. We dropped by to have lunch. The fish and chips and cornish pastys were excellent. Prices were reasonable.

I don't think so. For pubs that have regular sports coverage, google for BT Sport Pub Finder and enter St. Ives.
