Middle-class gastropub where we had to sit on stools at the bar but this was hardly surprising given it was prime time for dining. Regular ale is Tribute at £3.40 with today's guest ales at £3.60 being Rebel Brewing's Bal Maiden and Cornish Crown's One Hop One Grain. I tried the former which was good. A few craft beers in bottles too which may say something about the clientele or may just reflect current tastes. Agree with JockStrap's review of 2010 that this pub probably deserves higher than its current score on this site (which seems to be the same as it was 5 years ago).

This pub is in a very dramatic location and is worth a detour just to see it and follow the coast road from Pendeen to St Ives.

The pub makes its money from food and is clearly a gastropub. As ever there are gastropubs and gastropubs...this one is superb and if you have the opportunity have a meal here. The beer is good to with a small bar area were drinkers are catered for. At time of visit three beers on tap all of which in fine condition.

The main dining area is situated away from the bar so if you are just popping in for a drink it is not too off-putting. large beer garden with a great view over the countryside.

As a gastropub: superb! Truly excellent food. OK, not a lot of beer, granted. But the food... died and gone to heaven!

Stayed overnight in early february. Decor and rooms excellent. the food was well prepared even if the portions were small and a bit to arty farty for my taste (personal opinion). Definately a resteraunt that sells beer and not a pub that sells food. Only one ale (Betty Stoggs). Dont expect a hearty meal if you are hiking down west re portion size.

Very much a gastropub this, with almost every table full with diners even on a somewhat overcast midweek lunchtime. Various gastropub books were for sale which presumably feature this pub. The door was decorated with numerous Michelin accolades and there was the obligatory shade of gastropub green paint on the walls.

We didnít eat ourselves, but the menu was pretty much what you would expect. Short and to the point with only have a dozen or so choices at around the £16 mark, and none of them what you would call pub grub. Besides the aforementioned green paint on some wood panelling the interior was a mixture of exposed stonework and yellow plaster. The floor was a rough screed type of affair. Itís a big pub with several adjoining rooms, one with a sofa in it, but that seems to be the exception with everything else geared up for dining, although there was also an cosy wood fire next to the bar.

The couple running it seemed an odd pair. He was friendly and helpful, whereas she told us in no uncertain terms that we couldnít sit at a table because it was ďreserved for dinersĒ even though we had obviously picked one without a reserved sign on it. She also ignored a punter who proffered a cheery goodbye on leaving.

Beers on offer were Skinnerís Betty Stogs and Heligan Honey, plus Tribute. Ciders were Stowford Press and the local Skreach.
