Great food Tavern pie is lovely so is the ribeye steak. Reasonable prices for a pub food is fresh and tasty. Highly recommend the crab soup. Overall is pub food so don't expect a London restaurant but its tasty.

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

Fish pie / fish and chips / squid rings / mussels reasonable but 50% more expensive than it should be, I think.

Great pub on the cliff above Newlyn harbour. From the bar you can look down with an almost aerial view onto the harbour and check-out the boats going in and out. Good, genuine feel about the place. The Penzace - Mousehole bus stops right outside every half an hour.

oh my god, that fish pie... utterly delicious!! The quality of the food in this unassuming little place totally surprised me. On top of being a very pleasant little local boozer with friendly staff, and great beer, the food was fantastic. What's not to like?

Nice food and a good drop of ale, but be prepared for some ripe language, the bar is used by local fishermen and swearing is how they punctuate their sentences. I recommend it, my mother was enjoying her food so much she could not hear anything else.

If you like fresh fish soup try the Red Lion in Newlyn. Friendly pub staff and locals and good beer and wine all at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit - or two!
