The Golden Lion is a friendly community pub not far from St. Ives Harbour and offers a decent selection of beers/ciders, solid-quality pub food and a relaxed atmosphere. This is less of a tourist place than, say, The Lifeboat Inn, so your may find more locals than foreigners (myself excluded) here. The bar staff are very friendly indeed, and you can better unwind in this rather small establishment than at the larger, busier places.

As food I had the chilli chicken with wedges and a better-than-average salad garnish (not the three dry leaves often served). The chicken breast was agreeably spicy and well prepared. There were quite a few inviting options on the menu. Drinks prices are pretty much average for the location (so, not too low).

A good choice of reasonably priced drinks and meals available all day. The Turkey Sunday roast is a good choice with plenty of vegetables.

A pint or two of Sinners ‘Mary Stogs’ is a nice pint of local Cornish beer. The pub shows Sky Sports on several screens in the rear lounge and one in the bar. The beer garden is also a nice place to relax. The pub is dog and child friendly.

Had a meal in the lion which was very nice. The Lion allows dogs into their building which is a must for people with animals that cannot be left in the houses/cottages/flats they are hiring for their holidays. Menu was plentiful so lots of selections . Food lovely and hot when it arrived and well presented.. A must to visit while you are in St Ives.
