A great place for food and drink. We found a table in the back on a busy evening and had a lovely meal and a few drinks. Have been in before but not for food. Might have to add it to my list of eateries now.

We had just arrived in St. Ives and unpacked when we headed out for a drink after a 12 hour train journey. Walking down Fore Street I heard some music coming from what turned out to be The Union Inn. As it was a Friday night it was busy but the bar men were on the ball and it didn't... More

Went in here for a couple drinks but stayed for one as so boring and no atmosphere at all. Bar man seemed miserable. Wouldn't go back in here at all.

We ate here twice as we enjoyed the food so much. Really filling good pub grub and lovely service to go with it. Just a shame there wasn't more of a choice for coeliacs.

Love this place!! So much history and great character, a real Cornish pub with lots of charm!! Staff are great and the food is always amazing. We always pop in when we are in the area. Cosy sofa and fire place too for the colder months and you can take your dog in too which is great for the walkers.
