We were staying in Port Issac and visited the Golden Lion on a recommendation from another Trip Advisor Reviewer. We both had Beer battered haddock and chips and it was excellent. I must also mention the choice of beers and ciders which was great.

We had dinner here and had a table on the upper level in front of a window with an awesome view of the sea. I had their fish & chips and it was the best I had while in England. My husband is allergic to all fish & seafood, so he had a steak and mac n cheese. He loved his meal and asked for the recipe for the Mac, and the chef came out to talk to him. Enjoyed our evening here.

We stayed at the Slipway for the weekend but decided to eat out at the Golden Lion. It was very buzzy and busy. The Fishermans Friends were singing on the Platt that evening so the pub was very busy. They did us excellent Pimms and we had fish and chips for supper. The food was good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We went back there for a drink on the Saturday evening and managed to get a seat outside on the balcony overlooking the sea, we enjoyed our visit and would definitely go back.

The meal didn't start well. The bottom floor was full, it was a sunny day, and everyone wanted a table with a sea view.
The girls pointed upstairs, put us on a table beside a window, and brought drinks quickly. Had the room to ourselves for a while. Very pleasant indeed.
But then, disaster . Ordered the mussels, and told that they hadn't been delivered yet! Fishmongers 20 meters away!
Waitress wanders down the hill, grabs the mussel delivery, lunch on the table in 15 minutes. Delicious.
It's a very touristy spot, Doc Martin is not always available for consultation, but the pub is good, the girls excellent, and the Fishermans Friends soundtrack now on our phones.
Made a great day even better for Australian visitors expecting poor nosh from
