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...

very friendly staff, well stocked bar, lovely local feel / atmosphere and the celebrated fish pie is excellent. I do suggest you try the rest of the menu too, the steak pie was delicious and my daughter though not a vegetarian recommends the vegetarian burger although I've never stayed their I would definitely suggest it as an option to anyone...

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...

After a quick decision, due to the fact we were starving, we piled in. Glad we did. A very decent lunch and pint was had and I can definitely recommend the burgers. Lovely. The fish and chips was very good and the Mac and Cheese look like The Magic Porridge Pot when it was served. It could have fed the...

We thought we'd try this pub after reading various good reviews and it didn't disappoint us. The food was excellent, I had the steak pie and my wife had the risotto which was a vegetarian option. The pub was very modern and updated inside. I'd advise booking though as it gets busy. Well worth a visit if in padstow

“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.”
