Lovely pub, friendly staff and a landlord that was trying to help someone while we were there. Didn't stay for food but ales kept well and lovely views from front windows.

We stopped off at the Red Lion on Friday 17th May 2013 before going to the Minack Theatre. Really lovely food and good beer, friendly service and great location. Would highly recommend and would certainly visit again if we're in Newlyn.

The family descended on the pub twice during our recent weeks stay in Newlyn. Staff were friendly in this good old fashioned pub. Best was the food. The ribeye steak is excellent value, so tender and tasty. That said everyone enjoyed whatever they'd ordered to eat. Beer was good too. All that and you look out of the window and... More
