As this pub was a stone's throw way from the Slipway B&B that we were staying in, it would have been crazy not to visit The Golden Lion. Like everything in Port Isaac, the bar area was quite small, but the service was fast and...More

We came here on a Sunday lunchtime. The pub is very cosy and we were lucky to get a table in the small nook with the open fire. The children were fascinated with the cellar which is a rather atmospheric games room. There is a...More

Very disappointed, popped in for a drink after a long walk. Went into a crowded bar with two young boys behind the bar. We had no greeting or smile just a "alright there". I asked how much a bottle of Merlot was and the staff...More

We arrived at the pub during the snow, and were welcomed into a lovely atmospheric bar, with roaring fires. The bar staff were friendly, and chatted away to us- recommending the local gins and beers. We stayed for dinner, which was surprisingly good for a...More
