Prawn On The Lawn, Padstow

A Fishy Delight In The Heart Of Padstow! 

Following on from the success of their London Islington restaurant, Rick and his wife Katie opened their second restaurant in Padstow in 2015.

They serve only the finest locally caught fish and are proud to be as sustainable and supportive to the local community as possible. Not surprisingly, their menu and fresh produce won them a place in the Times top 100 restaurants in the UK, and they have even made it into the Michelin Guide! 

Prawn On The Lawn was recommend to us by one of our previous buyers during their Open House revisit and by top local chef Emily Scott of the St Tudy Inn and this is just one of the many reasons why North Cornwall is renowned as one of the best places to live in the UK.
