At weekends the upstairs facilities are opened up and affords superb views over the harbour. The quality of the lunchtime food was excellent with a very good choice. The local mussels were large, succulent, and beautifully cooked.

Popped in here for a quick drink on Saturday afternoon and ended up staying for a couple. A great selection of gins, with some quite fancy ones at decent prices. Our favourite was the pink peppercorn gin - excellent. Furthermore the bar staff were very friendly, and happy to offer opinions and recommendations on the drinks. Will definitely return when...

We had an unplanned return visit to this restaurant when in St Ives for 4 nights because we enjoyed our first meal and also wanted to try the downstairs gin bar. Both highly recommended; good variety on the menu - you can have pizza or pasta or steak / chicken dishes. Gin bar was great; the barman recommendation was perfect!... More

My partner and I visited as it was highly recommended. We went on a Saturday night, the food was delicious, there was a great atmosphere and the staff were brilliant. Will definitely be returning.

Popped in here late trying to find a quick meal. We enjoyed a relatively good meal upstairs, nothing exceptional but did the job. The gun bar is where it's at for fun. Being more of a wine / bubbly drinker, I always struggle at the traditional bar. The bartender, Kai seemed passionate about his gins so for fun of it;... More

Just back from our annual November break in St Ives, as usual we had dinner on both Friday nights. The quality of the meals is constantly excellent from year to year. The staff are excellent, efficient and attentive. Special mention for the manager for creating a great atmosphere and the lovely waitress who served us on her first night in... More

We have eaten here before on a previous holiday and felt confident we would enjoy our food, which we did. The staff are very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the burger and chips which I can't fault. The burger itself is thin. I find a lot of gormet type burgers tend to have quite thick and very filling burgers so... More

Over ninety different gins in this traditional pub is something else. Hard to imagine without actually seeing shelf after shelf stocked with straight and flavoured gins. They look good as well as offering a possibly new experience. Served by knowledgeable staff who have somehow accumulated the information to advise on what any one of the gins you might want to...

We had fantastic food, both starters and mains. Cocktails are well worth ordering and the atmosphere was great. A must visit.

Visited the Firehouse while we were in St Ives for a few days break away. We wanted to pick a good restaurant as it was a special occasion (our Christmas meal before my boyfriend went back on his deployment over Christmas) It was the best! We had looked at another restaurant but they were closed over November, but I was... More
