The Lifeboat Inn is a traditional harbour-side pub with log fire and outstanding views of the sea. 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.

In the New Year we are going to be adding 2 new apartments and 5 bedrooms to the Lifeboat. Unfortunately this means we are going to have to close for a few weeks while we tackle this exciting project.


The Lifeboat will be closed from Monday 7th January and we are looking to re open again in March. The new rooms will be available to book from April.


Please give us a call if you require any more information.
