Welcome to The Bean Inn

The Bean Inn was born in 2003 and its reputation has grown steadily throughout the years.

Based on the ground floor of our sister business, Coast B&B, The Bean Inn is also open to non-residents.

All of our dishes are approved by the Vegetarian Society and we are delighted to be part of their Food & Drink Guild. All of our dishes are vegan or can be adapted.

The ultimate way to experience our food and soak up ‘The Bean Inn vibe’ is to eat in our intimate, candlelit restaurant. St Ives is a haven for artists and so, eating in our restaurant gallery is an apt way to relax, unwind and enjoy your meal. Our aim in the restaurant is to offer you some of the tastiest vegetarian and vegan dishes from around the world. Bringing you the best flavours means using the best quality ingredients. We therefore use local, organic and seasonal produce whenever possible.

Our cleaning and laundry products & soaps are environmentally friendly and free from animal ingredients. None of the products are tested on animals.

The Bean Inn is also licensed and all our drinks are vegan friendly. Our carefully selected drinks list includes organic options and award winning locally made wines and beers. We also enjoy providing outside catering when possible. Please call for more information.

Cooking is our passion and we’re proud to share our love of food with you. We hope that our dishes inspire, comfort, indulge and delight you. Bon Appetit!

Opening Times

It’s with very heavy hearts that we’re announcing that we are delaying the re-opening of the restaurant for the 2020 season.

Following the Government’s advice to avoid restaurants, we feel that this is the right thing to do.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back when this has passed and will keep you updated on our plans.

Stay safe everyone, lots of love Paula & Kate
