This place is amazing. The food is delicious and the service is brilliant. Dog loving/friendly and this is food with heart. The fish and chips are amazing. Young Ryan is the of best waiters, as he is polite and professional. Thank you, Golden Lion for your upmost hospitality.

Good food, Not too expensive. Have a dessert. While the food was good the dessert was amazing. Out of seven nights away we ate here twice, and if we go to Cornwall again next year I've no doubt we'll go back again.

Sunday lunch for 3 of us, in the bar area. This was our second visit. Starters of fishcakes and crayfish thermidor for two of us. Both were excellent in flavour and in quantity. Mains of two roast dinners (one pork and one of 3 difefrent meats - pork, beef and lamb) and one burger. All were extremely good. The roasts... More

We arrived to a open fire with a warm welcome from the staff. The menu is very good a nice selection. We didn't wait long for the food to arrive, I had the cheese platter and my partner had the steak and kidney pie, absolutely delicious, I will be coming back.

Went with friends for a birthday lunch. The table was pre booked but when we arrived they said they could not find the booking. The food was terrible unable to eat most of it. We quite often book for lunch but will not be returning in a hurry.

This is a really lovely pub on the edge of Stithians reservoir. We went here for lunch en route from Redruth station to our home, having read previous good reviews. It was very quiet at the time but there was a welcoming log fire. We sat overlooking the lake and the very pretty garden. Our food came fairly quickly. I... More

Having spent a week in our campervan at Stithians, we have spent every evening in the Golden lion for meals and drinks. What wonderful food and service. We were made to feel like locals on the first night by the friendly staff. The food here is absolutely exceptional and far beyond good pub grub. I highly recommend the belly pork.... More
