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

Stayed in Cornwall for an extra night as we were going to see Fishermans Friends sing in Port Isaac and this little place was the closest. We were allocated a nice room which had everything we needed, loads of tea, coffee etc, most places are stingy with these items. We had Thai food before we went out and it was... More

This pub is only a couple of miles from us so we thought we would give the thai food another go, we were made to feel very welcome. We had the Thia platter to start and it was excellent, for mains we had red and green curries which were lovely.Will we be going back? yes we will!
