we used the union about 4 times over a 2 week period and on each occasion we had great food and excellent service and we could also take the dog in with us which a lot of the pubs dont allow.

The food in here was superb (we had a steak with pepper sauce and the fish pie), and the service incredibly friendly! It's really cosy inside and we didn't feel rushed at all, despite the pub being located right in the heart of St Ives....More

If you like a proper pub, then this is a place to visit. I wish pubs where I lived were like this. Good choice of beer here. I didn't eat, but they have a menu with the usual pub meals.

Two sirloin steaks and a bottle of wine for £28 . Fantastic food cooked to order. Simply the best we have had. Great pub in the heart of town.

Ate here last Sunday for their car very meal. The meal was traditional roast in a traditional English pub. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The meat was plentiful with a variety of vegetables. Well done guys.

The roast dinner when we were there was available but it could be subject to change. I had a lovely large cauliflower cheese one day. I suggest you look at their menu on line or phone them if you're not sure. Nice place to... More
