As we are staying in Newlyn for our holiday, we dropped by the Red Lion on our way back from St Ives to see if we could book for dinner and were welcome by the lovely lady serving at the bar who could only fit us in straight away before later bookings so my husband & our 10 years old... More

Beautiful pub with a good selection of beer. Good pub food with lots of fresh fish on offer. Most importantly, the view over Newlyn harbour was stunning. Couldn't have been better!

We had a nice lunch here. Crab soup really good, burger my husband said one of the nicest he has had, and chicken a hit with our 14 year old. Very dog friendly.

Just dropped in for drinks but nice clean space with friendly bar staff. Liked it! Good prices and lovely selection. Good music for an 80s girl who loves her disco too!

We were looking for somewhere to eat on a miserable, wet, summer Monday. We'd already tried two pubs that we knew of - both were shut. We happened to chance on the Red Lion, right on the sea front, on our way to Mousehole, and stopped to eat. The menu was fairly limited but with plenty of fresh fish and... More

Wanting to avoid the tourist pubs and restaurants of Penzance, we drove the mile to Newlyn and are so pleased we did! We found the Red Lion pub, right on the harbour - the commercial harbour. The Red Lion is a small locals pub, with a pool table as you walk in, a small bar and three (3), yes three... More

Ate twice here during our recent holiday in Newlyn. The Steak and Guinness Pie was so delicious my husband needed to go back and have it again!! Second time, I had the Monkfish goujons, which were also delicious! Friendly service with no frills, and great value for money. Highly recommend.

Upon entering, you may think, "Ho hum, another pub." But upon eating their delicious food, you realize this isn't just any pub. The employees were welcoming and efficient. The atmosphere, local and easy. The foods were some of the best seafood and pies we've experienced. Price was typical. Parking was a little challenging with 2 dedicated spots and regular street...
