Visited on a Saturday night and although the views across St Ives harbour were beautiful that is the only thing that stands out about this place. The food was average and the place was very noisy. It was hard to hear each other speak.

The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome. We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat. We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.
