Has the looks of a traditional old English pub and when you enter again the quintessential feel is “Old school rustic” man propping up the bar with his dog, dodgy juke box, pool table, all checked and in attendance. We arrived around 1230 lunchtime, barely a soul in the place and we turned up en masse, around 25 of us.... More

Was here last week, never before been moved to use tripadvisor. This place leaves a lingering bad memory. So close to Port Isaac and really should be better. Dreadful, over priced food, run down and dirty premises, ignorant landlord and dramatically over priced drinks. Avoid at all costs.

We were made welcome and the staff were helpful about my gluten free diet, although not much choice for me. We had a very pleasant lunch, it was very quiet at the time and out of high season. The garden is small but okay and there are several tables

A slightly odd stay as they were in the middle of a management crisis. So check your booking before you arrive. However, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the bar downstairs friendly and the breakfast ordinary but generous. Walls are thin upstairs so we went to sleep to the neighbour's TV and I was woken by it in the morning.... More

we arrived at 8:30 on 30/6/2015 and was told by an unsmiling landlady that she had enough orders to deal with and wouldnt be taking any more, despite advertising that food is available up to 9:00pm. There is not many places around locally for food but we managed to get a table at Golden Lion at Port Isaac at 8:55... More

Although the waitress was very friendly and I'm sure it is a great drinking pub I won't be making the mistake of eating here again. Maybe my standards are high having been in the hospitality industry for 16 years but there was nothing authentic about the Thai food and the other dishes were very mediocre

We are on holiday in the port Isaac area and decided to visit the Cornish Arms for tea, on arrival the staff were really friendly and found us a table. Menu was mainly Thai based which we found a little strange for a traditional country Cornish pub, however there was choice other than Thai which we went for. Food took... More

The food although mostly Thai was very good and a great selection, one morning I had asked if they had cold cereal ..they... More
