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.
We can't think of a better way to start the day than enjoying a freshly prepared breakfast while enjoying the beautiful panoramic of St Ives harbour. All you have to do is turn up, sit down and admire the view!
We serve breakfast each morning from 8am until 10am. You don't have to, but, booking a table is advised especially at the weekend and during the Summer months.
Enjoy a meal as you take in the sea views of St Ives or try our own blend of Brewer & Bean coffee over lunch.
If you would like to join us for lunch or an evening meal please come in and take a seat.
Unfortunately we do not take table bookings for our main menu.
Each Sunday we offer a delicious Carvery alongside our main menu. We take bookings for this at 12noon only.

We believe if you want something done to perfection, you need to do it yourself; that’s why here at St Austell Brewery we have created our very own Brewer & Bean coffee , If you thought our blend was rather delicious already we have now decided to take it to new heights and use 100% arabica beans, giving this blend a medium body packed full of flavour. Our beans are hand roasted in Cornwall and freshly ground to order. We even offer a loyalty card, so you can enjoy some Cornish roasted bean goodness for free!
Make your choice and enjoy!
