First visit we had the burgers and on our second visit it was the fish packets, which were excellent and reasonably priced. Limited real ale selection though.

We sat by the window and looked out over the harbour with St Michaels mount in the background. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made our family feel welcome. The food was extremely good value with fresh fish from the local fishermen and the puddings were delicious too.It has a real traditional, local feel to it.

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.

Good food and friendly pub. Lovely garden. Favourite with all the family and where we all go whenever visiting. Traditional and old fashioned just the way a pub should be, great ales too and well looked after!

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.

I ate here several times whilst on holiday in Newlyn. The staff and regulars are friendly, the beer is good and the food is good value. On different visits I tried the Tavern Pie (Cornish beef in gravy) and Hake Fillets in Tempura Batter which was excellent.
