Wish it was last Sunday, had the best Sunday lunch, hot, tasty and loads of it. We also had one other lunch and two dinners in our week down there. Food is really good, two steak dinners cooked to perfection and a bottle of wine, great value. Cosy, warm, friendly, best pub food in St Ives and beats the overpriced...

We were choosing for a place to dine in and saw, The Union Inn. We were greeted warmly. At first, we decided to just have a pint there. Then changed our mind, to have a meal instead. The meal we had, absolutely nice. We are going to recommend to family and friends.

We popped in to this genuine little pub on Fore Street for an evening meal during a mid-week stay in St Ives. We didn't pre-book but found our welcome bright and positive. The menu was typical good pub food and good value prices. We ordered two fish pies and were very pleasantly surprised by the very tasty pie and accompanying...

Popped in here for a snack rather than a meal. Chose the homemade soup which was delicious and served with a tasty cut ham sandwich. Great value at under £6. Friendly, comfortable place to stop awhile

Great dog friendly pub. Food was reasonably priced, delicious, well presented and served quickly. Reasonably choice of traditional food. Staff friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend this establishment that had a wide selection of real ales with lots of very interesting historical photographs all round the walls of st.ives.

We have visited The Union Inn many times over the years but never got round to writing a review. We had Sunday roast, beef this time and it was amazing just as every other time before. Portions are generous, very tender beef, fresh cooked vegetables and a yorkshire pudding all served piping hot. An absolute gem of a place and...

Visited just for a drink because this pub is dog friendly but after seeing the portion sizes of the food decided to have something to eat. The quality and portion size was exceptional.
