Considering Cromwell is synonymous with Puritanism and indeed closed down many Inns during the life of his Commonwealth, it's somewhat ironic a pub should be named after him. Still, as he was born close by in Huntingdon and has associations with St Ives, it's not entirely unsurprising. Happily this attractive pedestrianised back-street pub is probably, arguably the best pub in St Ives. Inside you'll find a cosy, warm pub, subtly updated featuring with plenty of wood. Out the back is a diminutive but attractive courtyard. On the pumps you will find a reasonable selection of ales, alongside the usual lagers, a good wine list and reasonably priced food. The Oliver Cromwell is the perfect place for a relaxing pint on a Sunday afternoon with the papers - and to perhaps contemplate that if the 1st Lord Protector's reign had lasted longer enjoying such a simple pleasure might not have been possible.
