Saint Ives Restaurants: 36 reviews and 53 photos


The Union Inn is a friendly pub where we stopped as they announced Sunday roast and that's not often we get these days when not living in England anymore so we didn't hesitate. It is one of the more well known pubs in town since it is along Fore Street with its shops, but we had no problem finding a table in what is a warm bar with the walls covered in various photos. I guess this is because most tourists generally end up down the waterfront to have a seaview and that is of course something you don't get here but otherwise I found that not just staff was friendly but also the regular locals and we were soon chit chatting away as if it was our local too. Doom Bar and some other beer were nicely kept even if it isn't St Austell and we were happy with our dinner.

Favorite Dish: Me and the daugher had chicken roast and hubby settled for the beef and we were all happy. Portions were generous, chicken was succulent still, and it included all the trimmings we expected.
