The first time my husband and I ate here for our anniversary. The staff were all extremely polite, welcoming the instant we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for anyone. We both had roasts which were delicious (Dan being an ex-chef was very impressed ). My Alaska bake desert was absolutely amazing and Dan had the brownie which was... More

The food was very average, the veg with the steak and kidney pie had a very... More

We stopped of at The Golden Lion for dinner on the 10th Feb 17 on the way to Caddy's Corner Lodges. We received a lovely warm welcome. The staff were friendly and even gave us the tip that portions were very generous when we almost ordered extra chips. They were not wrong. I was undecided between Thai fishcakes and the... More

Booked for lunch at the Golden Lion for valentines day, not disappointed with anything. Excellent meals with attentive staff ensuring all was ok. Very good desserts, Pavlova and baked Alaska are big enough to have as a sharing dish. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in the area.

we went to the pub not realising that it didn't open for another half hour, but the owner said we were welcome to have a coffee. Went back after a walk and had lunch, which was very good. The staff were friendly and efficient. Old pub in the Cornish style with open fires and a warm welcome.

A group of 14 went for my wife's birthday, The food came out on time hot and very good quality, The staff were friendly and very helpful, most people had main course desert and a few drinks and the bill was £220, which I think is good value for what we had, I had think we will visit again soon.

outside of the tourist season, the Golden Lion is still a good place to visit for a drink or meal. quiet, friendly and efficient. The menu is relatively unchanged so if you visit often it might get a bit samey but every dish is good value and tasty. The ocean (fish) pie is now Gluten Free; hurrah! tonight, the sky... More

Fantastic location, good service and ambiance would recommend good menu. Warm and welcoming venue. Only downside could do with a refresh for decoration

Really enjoyed our meal today - 9 of us and 2 dogs are in the snug. Very friendly unrushed service, and beautifully cooked food.
