Great boozer, there is a lot of top class pearls in there. A must visit if in St Ives. And you must try the drip tray and blackcurrant.

If you have kids don't visit this pub at night as there were blokes fighting inside and drug taking in the toilets, avoid like the plague

That may upset some people but really shouldn't. We went there because we were told it was the only place still open after 12.30am and we fancied another beer. It's a bit like a Wild West saloon, admittedly it was very late and nearly everyone...More
