Flying visit to Port Isaac. Restaurants all booked up but took a chance with the last table at the Golden Lion pub. Good decision as the fish was fresh, tasty and hot. Service was quick despite the numbers.

Small but welcoming pub with good variety of beers. Very small balcony for sitting outside and no smoking, even on the balcony.
