Came in for lunch the other day. The staff were very offhand and seemed disinterested so we left. We found somewhere else to eat in Padstow with friendly, welcoming staff. I am sure the food is fine but you do need to make people feel welcome.

I went with a group of friends for dinner at this pub and was disappointed with the food, as were most of my companions. The fish pie, which I had heard was legendary, was mostly mashed potato and lacked seasoning so didn't really taste of anything. I had steak and ale pie which was, again, very meadiocre - again it...

We have been to many of the restaurants in Padstow and this is one of the last we have been to, and maybe one of the best. We had booked four months ago and arrived to a warm welcome. Having ordered drinks from the bar we then had whitebait between us, two portions for four people and a main course...

Make sure you book ahead if you'd like to experiences this great Sunday Roast. There's limited seating and it's very popular. They restrict their menu to roasts on Sundays, but you have a choice of meats and there is the option of small (£6.95) or large (£9.95). The best roast beef ever (moist, pink and tender enough to hardly need...

My wife and I have been going to the Golden Lion for years but I think it is safe to say the last five years has been outstanding. We had a couple of evening meals there with rib eyed steaks melting in the mouth and a fish pie we couldn't finish because of the amount of different fish in the...

“Try and get a second floor room if you can as it'll be quieter as it's further from the bar below.”

“Ask for the room facing the street. It's quiet at night, and the view of the little quirky shops opposite and the tiny narrow streets are lovely to look at from your window seat in the morning.”
