Lifeboat Inn: Waterfront pub in St. Ives
The waterfront of St. Ives is lined with pubs and restaurants and takeout joints. Check out the menus and see which one is less crowded to make your choice. The Lifeboat Inn is large enough not to feel too closed in if it's crowded. The exterior is an older building but the interior is gleaming with wood and a log fire. There are tables and booths. There are lots of windows so it's bright inside, not dark.The food is standard pub fare, standard pub prices. Service was good, and the views over the harbour are nice, too! We had Cornish Pasties but were underwhelmed. They tasted like they probably were commercially made rather than fresh from a bakery. Other menu items were probably fine but if you're looking for a traditional pasty, this isn't the place to try it.
