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.

Great boozer, there is a lot of top class pearls in there. A must visit if in St Ives. And you must try the drip tray and blackcurrant.
