The Lifeboat Inn is a traditional harbour-side pub with log fire and outstanding views of the sea. Our menus combine pub classics with enticing specials, behind the bar you will find locally brewed beers, west country ciders, fine wines by the glass, classic cocktails and barista coffees. Sitting alongside the famous lifeboat house that supports seafarers it's a great place to relax, enjoy a meal and watch the maritime activities of St Ives. Upstairs we have 5 boutique hotel style bedrooms and 2 self-catering apartments - perfect for a holiday in the heart of St Ives.

We love dogs here at the Lifeboat and we wouldn't want them to miss out on a little holiday too!
We’re the ideal hound hideaway for dogs due to our fantastic location! There are some idylic walks in our local area, we are minutes away from the South West Coast path and there are plenty of dog friendly beaches in the area. We are sure that will keep you happy and your four legged friends tail wagging for joy!
Your dog is welcome to join you in our bar and outside spaces but we do ask that you do not leave them in the room alone as it can sometimes be unsettling for them.
We want you and your dog to be as comfortable as possible so we suggest, a maximum of 2 well behaved dogs, per room.
To ensure we allocate you the correct room please call us to book a dog friendly room. Dogs are charged an additional £10 per dog, per night.Lets go walkies!
