The Lifeboat Inn

Wharf Road St Ives TR26 1LF

A traditional, busy pub on the harbour-front, The Lifeboat Inn is one of St Ives’ most popular live music venues, with bands playing every weekend (more often in peak season). There's tribute acts, local rock bands and karaoke sessions, so as you might expect it’s a lively place, and not the sort of place for quiet conversation or romantic dining. Even when the music isn’t pumping you can lap up the atmosphere watching live sport or tucking into a platter of pub grub.
