All character has gone as has the ghost. A real disappointment. If you like your pubs like a cafe with white washed ceilings this is for you. Beer good, atmosphere zero. Please have a heart and put it back to as it was!
If you like your traditional pubs and don't wish to be traumatised heed this warning.
Didn't stay and will not return just popped in for a drink.

Excellent accommodation in an historic village. Great food and the service was great on arrival and at breakfast. Travelled from Australia and worth the s effort. I’d have no hesitation in returning to this accommodation. Reasonably priced as well.

We visited this lovely old Inn for two nights.
Our room, the Schooner, was excellent with ensuite. Been modernised to a good standard. I believe other rooms do not have en suite. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff exceptionally friendly, lovely old world bar too. To stop me giving the top mark is that the entrance corridor could do with a paint out. Sorry but first impressions stay with you. On saying all of this. I would stay again. Thank you

Dear Sue,

Thank you for your review. We're glad that you've enjoyed your stay at The London Inn. I'm pleased that the breakfast and the service was up to your liking.
We have 3 en suite rooms and 1 room with an external private bathroom, which we're planning to extend and make it to a family room with an en suite bathroom.We've took on this pub in February and our team has worked very hard to make improvements in a short period of time before season has begun in Padstow. Refurbishment is an ongoing process at the moment and thank you very much for pointing it out to us about the corridor. We will make it our priority job on our "to do" list.

Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to welcome you again in the near future.
Rita

The London Inn is a smaller community pub in the heart of Padstow, a few minutes walk from the harbour. The inside is split into several small rooms, evidence of the historic architecture of the building. The bar, too, is on the small side but offers a fair range of real ale ales and lagers, including a selection from St. Austell Brewery.

To the back you'll find a small beer garden on an elevated wooden platform, clearly an afterthought. The stairs to the platform are very narrow and rather steep, which could be problematic for smaller children (a sign at the bottom of the stairs advises parents to take them by the hand). The whole construction has a somewhat appealingly cramped, intimate feel to it, an impression only reinforced by the proximity of adjacent buildings - the high wooden walls around the platform preclude nosey looks though. Neither the beer garden nor the pub itself are suitable for larger groups.

Considering the many other options in close proximity to the London Inn, I'd say this is a nice, middle of the road choice, not especially a first one for beer lovers (You can get St. Austell brews practically everywhere in the neighbourhood). But it does have some charm. Beer prices are on the same, slightly elevated level that's characteristic for a touristy place like Padstow.

The pub is really central and a great base for exploring Padstow. The room was very comfortable and bright and clean. The breakfast was fine and the staff were very friendly and polite. I would recommend the London Inn for a short stay
