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. In 2019 it was also names Best Seafood Restaurant by the Caterer. Rick and Katie now work between their 2 restaurants in order to maintain their family owned feel.

Eating out in a marquee in a muddy field on a windy, wet dark evening in October is always going to have challenges. The path from the car park to the marquee could and should have been better lit, because it was muddy and dark! Put some more boards down and lights to help. Very glad we wore wellies. The menu was difficult to read, since we could not walk around. Maybe put a copy on the table? The menu options of either tapas type dishes or just a whole fish, with nothing in between was limiting. Food was good, but not outstanding. Staff and service was good and friendly, and there was an attractive buzz in the marquee of people enjoying themselves. Much better on a gorgeous warm sunny evening in Summer. Perhaps next year?

This is my second visit and it didn't disappoint. If anything, it was an even better experience than my first meal with POTL. The adaptation to the Farm is a superb success - despite the appalling weather, we loved the ambience, which was cosy but spacious, whilst ensuring a feeling of great Covid safety and care. The service was great. The food was superb. My favourite restaurant anywhere.

The food was excellent but getting to the tent was extremely muddy and made even more difficult because it was so dark. Also inside was cold which made it difficult to really relax and enjoy the evening. I believe this is the last week at this venue and I think I would have enjoyed being in the restaurant more. I would visit the restaurant if I was in a Padstow again as I really enjoyed the food.

Parking in the rain and walking through the fields was definitely not fun!!!! The staff were very good and knowledgeable. The food unfortunately was just so so - disappointing. Value for money it was not, we could have gone to Rick Steins and had an excellent meal for the money we paid. Sorry to give such a bad review but you are charging top money and hoping that the quirky/beautiful setting will be enough. On a good point the wine was very nice.

Very disappointed with the lack of lighting from the car park to the marquee. The field was very wet & there wasn’t a marked walking area or temporary footpath which resulted in our party of 4 having extremely muddy shoes. I have had to throw out a perfectly good pair of suede boots due the severity of the damage the mud has done to them. Also, there is no notices to direct you to the entrance, we had to guess. I’m assuming it would be much easier in day light but we were booked in for 7.30pm therefore arriving in the pitch black. Dress code is ‘anything goes’. May be something could be on their website as to the dress code. We were told ‘smart’ (by a friend) but could easily been at home in jeans & wellies. Food & service was great.

Absolutely loved it. Great food and drink. Cosy and warm despite the howling gale and pouring rain outside the tent. Yes its a bit muddy getting from the car to the tent but it added to the fun. Full marks to the POTL team for working their way round Covid 19 and i personally hope the tent is back again next year regardless.

We had a lovely time and loved all of the food. The service was great and we loved that the plates came one at a time and we had freedom to order more as we wanted. The only downside is that we followed advice that it was a 30 min walk from padstow, but the paths were so wet and muddy that it took us about 45 mins to make our way up, arriving a little stressed out that we were late. I recommend getting a taxi and wearing boots/wellies.
