About Prawn on the Lawn (Padstow)
In May 2015 Katie and Rick decided to move to Cornwall to set up a second restaurant, Prawn On the Lawn Padstow leaving POTL Islington in the capable hands of their dedicated team. Opened in July 2015, it follows a similar format to the restaurant in Islington being a fully licensed fishmonger and restaurant. Still a small operation with only 24 covers, the menu changes every day and aims to be as sustainable as possible, working with local suppliers in Padstow and the surrounding areas. In 2017 POTL Padstow was named of of the Times Top 100 restaurants in the UK and also featured in the Michelin Guide. Rick and Katie now work between their 2 restaurants in order to maintain their family owned feel.
Absolutely great time and fab food. This was a second visit and PoTL kindly catered for one of our party not keen on fish though I think he may be changing his mind now! Love the whole concept of this place and have booked again for NYE 2019.
Lovely place, small but cosy and very welcoming. sat at the side bar and was comfortable and gave us chance to see what was happening in the kitchen area. Food was excellent, every dish, including cod cheeks, scallops, POTL signature dish and local oysters. Lovely bottle of blanc des blancs, really nice and also great post-meal espresso martinis. Definitely be back.
limited selection but obviously time of year
I can appreciate the time of the year dictate's the selection that is available. We had booked a table for 18:30 and was disappointed to see that the menu had already been depleted of availability. Okay so we were still able to have a limited selection. By the time we left your restaurant at 20:30 the selection was down to just 2 option's. I would however like to finish on a positive. Your team were absolutely professional and very helpful. The team were well worth the visit.
Another flawless experience from booking through to eating our way through your gorgeous menu! The staff are absolutely perfect and we love visiting for the welcome (they remember faces well!) and the effortless, stylish service! Thank you and see you again! Melanie
Bobby bloody dazzling...again!
Fabulous evening . Lovely food and really friendly service in a cosy buzzing atmosphere! Thank you
First time here. Staff very good and knowledgable about the products. Felt we were squeezed in at the end as not a lot of room. Felt you should not allow dogs in as the restaurant is small and room very limited. Food was excellent.
Always a superb evening!
Superb experience...we were a party of 8 and left the Prawn team to choose our food. We had 15 different dishes and all of them were excellent, innovative and delicious. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
lovely place, lovely food - and mainly different from when we last ate here.
Lovely meal in a very nice atmosphere. Just a couple of minor points, mussels very small & on the sharing plates if there are two of you the items would be better in either two or fours & not threes. Overall would return.
6 of us had a great meal a couple of days after Christmas. Really seriously good food and great service. Wish we lived nearer!
Excellent service, friendly, cozy atmosphere
We’ve been several times, and have always enjoyed the delicious food!
Lovely dinner and evening for a small group 2-6 max!
Great food and great fun, we will be back
Absolutely incredible meal - we had one of each of all the small plates and two puddings - all fabulous!
Excellent food and wine served by a great staff.
Really enjoyed the whole experience
Amazing food and service, and great value. I really wish we lived nearer!!!
Probably the best seafood restaurant I have ever eaten in. The flexibility of the menu and expertise of the waiting staff made this a truly wonderful eating experience.
An excellent restaurant/fishmonger: wonderful food, lovely staff and a great ambience. Considering how local much of the fish is I feel that the prices are more expensive but this is trendy Padstow so maybe there’s not much that can be done about that.
This is the third year we have been whilst staying in Padstow and we cannot fault the food or service. We would not recommend this as it’s getting busier and we do not want people to go and stop us from getting a table.
