lovely little pub with mouth watering delicious fish pie- full of flavour and even now the next morning i can still taste it!- yum! Fish and chips also great very crispy batter and not oily. We are lucky enough to be staying just about 10 seconds walk from the pub ad glad to be here "off season when we hope to be able to make a visit every day and bag a table! Cosy roaring fire too and friendly service with a smile.

Loved the cosy feeling of sheltering from the wind with a nice pint of Guinness whilst warming by the open fire.

Just returned from a week in the beautiful village of port Isaac. The golden lion is how pubs have forgotten how it should be done, food was excellent and the staff equal. Landlord(Dale) is one of a kind, don't make them like that anymore(alas). Would highly recommend this pub both for food and drink. Big thank you from Donald and fiona

This is a great place for both locals and visitors. Nice atmosphere and good honest pub grub at very reasonable prices given the location.

This the most atmospheric pub in Port Isaac - a real gem of a building with fantastic views, real fires and friendly staff.

But sadly the food does not match up - or at least didn't on our visit over the New Year period. We ordered vegetable soup, and it was very apparently NOT home-cooked - very salty and tasting of those packet soups you eat on camping trips where you just add water (a professional chef in our party could tell what ingredients were in it).

People's food expectations are much higher these days, and it seems a real pity to offer sub-standard food in an otherwise great pub.
