We ate at the Golden Lion on Sunday evening as a family of 6 (all adults ranging from 30-85) and wanted to take part in the quiz the same evening

The food was really good and better than we were expecting with good sized portions for a reasonable price. The pub itself was friendly and welcoming which was really lovely as sometimes local pubs can be a bit intimidating.

The quiz was good fun and we managed to win which made it even better. A good laugh for £5 per team entry.

As they’re filming in port Isaac at the moment too you do rub shoulders with the odd celeb but you wouldn’t know it, they just blend in which was really lovely too.

My only criticism would be that apparently there is a £5 menu when you take part in the quiz which we didn’t know about and would have been good and saved us a fair bit of money but we can’t complain about the food we did have as it was delicious and hot!

Would visit again if in the area and a further plus is dogs are very much welcome

We popped in for a quick drink whilst visiting Port Issac, and it is exactly what you would expect from a traditional village local.

Lots of character, lost of local beers / ales and staff who appear begrudgingly helpful, which sort of adds to the character.

Having said that we had a great pint on the balcony whilst we enjoyed the views of Port Issac

The Golden Lion always seems busy and chaotic, but nonetheless seems to offer good tasty food at reasonable prices. Overlooking the harbour, it is a pity the windows aren't cleaner to improve the view. Fish and chips were crisp and light.
