We visited on a cold March evening. Very warm and cosy inside. Great menu,especially vegetarian well catered for. Busy evening as quiz night. Advised food would take 40 minutes which was no problem and worth waiting for.

This is a superb traditional pub serving high quality home cooked food. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Beer was kept to a good standard. A must if you are staying in St Ives

This was my first time back to the Cornish Arms since my teen years (when I drank Dubonnet!), & we had booked a table for supper the midweek Quiz Night. The menu is varied but on recommendation we chose the fish & chips which were lovely, crispy, really tasty. The Quiz was fun, a good atmosphere all round

We were recommended to this pub by a member of a popular St Ives Facebook group. However, upon entry, the elderly barman/landlord, scowled at us and without a word of welcome barked at us “did we have a booking”. When we said we hadn’t he proceeded to say in an unfriendly manner that we would have an exceptionally long wait. There were other customers at the bar who seemed stunned by this outburst and watched with interest for our response. Furthermore, this seemed incredulous to us as this was early Monday evening, out of season, and there were only a handful of patrons in the place and hardly any of those were eating.
We had perused the menu outside, and it really is nothing special, so given the attitude and the atmosphere we duly took our patronage and payment to one of the many fabulous establishments down in St Ives.
I would never return, or recommend, as it was a wholly negative experience and a fine example of negligible customer service.
