I have been visiting the London Inn since 1980 and it hasn't changed much. A couple of years ago it went through a phase when its food was not good value; however that had now altered dramatically and the food is now very wholesome and good value. I, however always go for the St Austell's HSD. This is the best... More

First I would like to apologise to Tim and all his staff for the late review, they made us feel so welcome when we visited in October 2016 that we can't wait to go back! I would also like to say that those odd people giving poor reviews that you obviously don't appreciate or enjoy local produce or history when... More

Plus points:- dogs allowed, warm and very friendly. Shabby interior. Can't set up a tab. Card payments must be over £10. Half the food on the menu was not available and what we did get was awful. Probably good if you just want a beer but would not eat there again.

Good mix of locals and visitors. Lovely fire and good menu choice. Another review said best crab sandwiches they had tasted and they are right! So fresh and full of meat. Only issue was that the food took nearly 1 hour to serve but luckily we were not in a rush. Great for the dog so would go back.

My abiding impression of the food here is that it came from packets - the fish, maybe not, but everything else tasted processed and right off a production line, sort of corporate as if the food comes from the same suppliers as the ones who supply chain pubs across the UK. Sticky tables, lukewarm custard, ugh. Cold atmosphere, lacking much... More

probably one of the oldest Pubs in Padstow and its a "real" pub not a restaurant pub. Dogs welcome, locals are great for a yarn or two, great ales both local and export,m good selection of wines. Eating area although limited to the rear if you book there is always a table ready for you. Food is wholesome, well presented... More

Lovely, friendly bar close to the harbour. Didn't have food but the real ales were perfect! Very dog friendly and welcoming bar maid. Shame we only had time to visit once.

Dropped in for a few pints whilst down in the town. Proper pub with plenty of character and characters. Warm friendly welcome, good selection of quality beers. We didn't eat there ourselves but others were and the food looked good and plentiful and the diners all seemed to be pleased with their fayre.

We recently popped in for a quick pint whilst visiting padstow! Pub was very old fashioned with so much to look at and so many talking points. The girl behind the bar was very friendly and telling us all about the Cornish flag and language. Would definitely recommend if you like things a bit quirky and different, not your run... More
