We live locally and regularly enjoy the Sunday evening carvery. It is top quality food, well cooked and served. This is a family run venture and they all work very hard to make sure the customer is satisfied. The choice of small, medium or large carvery means all appetites are catered for. With so many choices locally, this is where... More

Superb quality food, with a choice of extremely well cooked meats and a wide range of vegetables. The owner is always friendly and welcoming. We have visited 5 or 6 times, and is definitely a place we will return to on our next visit to St Ives. Overall, I feel this merits nothing less than a "highly recommended" rating.

We have been here numerous times for the Sunday carvery and recommend it to all our friends. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. Do go if you can. You have a choice of three plate sizes so great if you are a small eater like me, or prefer larger portions like my OH. Three... More

This is a great place for food. The best fish pie I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They have a warm welcome and make you feel relaxed and that you have been a friend for years. Great service. Worth the visit off the beaten track.

We had a carvery which was delicious and generous. The owners were very welcoming. It gets busy so worth booking.

Have been to this pub before, so called in with our family. As we were ordering drinks, we enquired about food. The bar lady was really unhelpful and frankly rude! The land lady appeared, and basically defended her too. Really poor customer services/relationship. We understand that we were a larger party, but she was extremely rude, and we felt very... More

Very welcoming.The food was good and the service was until we had finished our meal and decided we didn't want a pudding and then it seemed as if they couldn't wait to get rid of us although they weren't busy.
