About Prawn on the Lawn (London)
Prawn on the Lawn in Islington is a fully licensed fishmonger and restaurant situated near to Islington’s buzzing Upper Street. Established in 2013 by Rick Toogood and his wife Katie, it began life as a seafood bar and fishmonger but has now been extended to include a 35 seater restaurant and 16 seating private dining room, serving only the freshest seafood and tapas-style fish dishes. Prawn on the Lawn serves creative plates including seared tuna, thai style scallops and our signature Prawn on the Lawn dish, as well as larger platters such as Crab, Lobster, Fruits De Mer and fresh fish you can pick from the counter, sourced directly from day boats and fish markets in Devon and Cornwall. We make every effort to be as seasonal and sustainable as possible and change our menu every day.
Dear Prawn on the Lawn, Once again i would like to say how fantastic my experience was at your establishment. I have tried your restaurant in Padstow and was hoping the experience would be the same in London, i was not left disappointed. Working in Hospitality i know how hard it is to get consistency in one outlet, let alone 2. But i found the whole experience mirrored that of Padstow. Including the level of training your staff have which is exceptional! Even when a near by flat above the restaurant was burning down. Your staff took control, as a precaution we were evacuated, but because of the way the staff handled the situation, no one was panicked and everyone was informed of what was going on regularly. I'm so glad nothing happened to your restaurant when this occurred because i need my Prawn on the Lawn fix and London is only a hour away where Padstow is 4. I recommended you to a friend as well and he also said how great his experience was as well. Thank you for such a great experience and congratulations on the opening of your new restaurant Barnaby's in Padstow, i can't wait to try, the menu looks amazing!! Kind regards, Fred Metcalfe 07828729901
Very good food. A nice selection of wine. A great restaurant to have in the neighbourhood!
Delicious fresh fish. So nice to be offered small plates instead of one big main at lunchtime. Perfect. Everything was so individually tasty and I loved the salad with truffle oil. Already recommend to my friends and will come again for sure.
Great food as usual, although I think the seafood platter wasn’t good value at 75 quid. So so Prawn’s, whelks which are very cheap and not many (and average m) oysters. No langustine or razor clams..was still hungry after eating...
We had a brilliant time at this lovely restaurant - we left smiling!
Amazing food in a very cute place. Quite small, but the service and food outshine that. We got shown different fish and they explained about the taste before we chose which one to eat.
We visited Prawn in Padstow in June and couldn't resist trying Islington too. We were not disappointed! Really enjoy the small plates to share and the great service. And having bought the recipe book we're working our way through it in good order.
Great all round
First visit to POTL and loved it. Good was amazing, especially the grey mullet with Thai spices. Staff were great, very attentive.
