A good choice for lunch, with a pleasant menu choice. St Ives is very busy in most eating places at lunchtime, so it was great to find somewhere with good food where we didn't struggle to get in!

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
