Chose the Golden Lion for lunch on a day trip to Port Isaac. It was a very hot day and we were looking for somewhere where we could at least eat outside as we had the dog with us. Dogs are allowed in the bar areas/ downstairs where you could also eat which was brilliant. A pleasant surprise(although this appears the norm for many pubs in Cornwall) it isn't so much in pubs back home. We ordered 3 of the sandwiches from the menu which were excellent and very quick service, good choice of St Austell ales and Rattler cider on draught. Really friendly staff who took a shine to our goldie as fellow retriever lovers. Would definitely recommend a lovely pub!

Whilst visiting Port Isaac today we needed something to cool us down so popped into The Golden Lion for a cool drink - dogs were welcome inside and out so as all outside seats were taken, we went inside, we ordered 2 orange cordial with lemonade which were a little on the expensive side at £3 each but well worth it to quench our thirst. The bar staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area whilst chatting with us. Well worth a visit.

Quick, tasty fish and chips, best so far in Port Isaac.Bit dark and pub like inside but what do you expect unless you get a window or outside balcony space.

A local pub with friendly staff who recommended the local gin. A nice view from the terrace across the harbour

Flying visit to Port Isaac. Restaurants all booked up but took a chance with the last table at the Golden Lion pub. Good decision as the fish was fresh, tasty and hot. Service was quick despite the numbers.
