That name… There's nowhere quite like the Rum & Crab Shack near the harbour in St Ives. It was established in 2012 by four friends who loved, naturally, drinking rum and eating crab; and 100 types of rum later, it's one of the town's best-loved venues.
Yes, a love of cracking claws and drinking grog helps, but there's also a good choice of chicken, veggie and vegan dishes. Not a rum drinker? Check out the cocktail menu. However, visiting pirates should grab a tot of the house rums, Dead Man's Fingers and Stargazy.
The old shack is in a great location in Wharf Road, with views out towards the harbour. It's open midday until midnight, and there's no need to book.
