The Golden Lion is a world-famous, 18th Century Cornish coastal pub serving real ales, carefully chosen wines and spirits, and delicious homemade food. There are views of the harbour from our main bar, balcony, Gun Deck, and the first-floor dining room. We serve lunch and dinner or if you would just simply like to pop by for drinks – you are very welcome to. There is something for everyone.

Our food is simple, well done, traditional pub fayre – expect fish and chips, scampi, fish pie, fish finger sandwiches, burgers, and a selection of daily specials such as mac ’n’ cheese, Porthilly mussels, and our seafood platter. We also offer a vegetarian and vegan option.

We now take bookings online and we can’t wait to welcome you.

Bookings of up to 6 people can be made online. We also offer larger bookings. If you would like to book anything larger than 6, or for an event, please give us a call or email us, and we’ll be delighted to arrange this for you.

Tables booked online are sadly not able to bring dogs. If you’d like to bring your furry friend, please pop by or call, email, or message us as we keep dog-friendly tables free for non-bookings and walk-ins.

We’re a small village pub, and absolutely love the character and charm that comes with it, but it does mean that some things are a little harder than others. Not all the tables have space for pushchairs or larger numbers of your furry friends. So please do bear this in mind before visiting.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
