The Golden Lion – Port Isaac

Set overlooking the Cornish sea in the idyllic fishing village of Port Isaac, The Golden Lion is a beautiful 18th century pub full of original character and charm. Home of the ‘Bloody Bones Bar’ which boasts a smuggling tunnel leading down onto a causeway on the beach, the pub has a rich seafaring history for guests to unravel as they while away the hours with a cask ale in front of our open fires.
