I'm considering getting one of the electric cool boxes from Argos which is powered by the 12v accessory socket in the car. It lists the power draw as 60W (5 amps). Will the socket in my Leon be able to handle that or will it pop the fuse?

Blessed be all fuses, even the meek 5amp ones.

According to my Haynes manual for a Golf, the 'cigar lighters' are protected by fuse 24, which is 25A

I've used a 150W inverter when camping, and even though the inverter has bleeped and flashed lights about being overloaded the fuse never went.
