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.
Great local produce superbly prepared & presented in unpretentious surroundings. As it says on blackboards...the small plates are small but adequate & provide the opportunity to sample the full range of seafood available on the day. Added bonus is the random order of service so always got the ‘What Next’ moment which adds to the overall experience.
This was a wonderful mean in a friendly and charming restaurant. We really enjoyed the small plates, every dish was cooked to perfection. The tables were close which encouraged us to talk to the table next door, and we could see into the kitchen where the talented staff created the wonderful food. We Thoroughly recommend this restaurant and the friendly and professional staff.
We had, as ever, a fab dinner. 3 of the people had never been before and were blown away by how good the food was. See u in the spring. All the best Mike Rudd
Thanks again. Always great to dine with you.
Enjoyed ourselves as usual!
The food and the service was very good. Atmosphere relaxed but fun. Would definitely recommend to try this place out! Thank you!
A truly excellent experience as always. Great food combined with friendly and highly efficient service. Roll on the next time we can visit!
Our second visit to Padstow (not been to London yet, but we will). Unique atmosphere, superb flavours complimented by the choice of beers. Our children hadn't been before and were both blown away, each trying some dishes for the first time. The favours were perfectly balanced, our choices delivered carefully in sequence to build to the boldest flavours. Lovely people, engaged, enthusiastic & passionate about their place. A joy to visit.
Unbelievable. All of the food, service and ambience were just perfect, thanks.
Our new favourite place in Padstow! We've been trying to get in here for ages but this time booked well in advance to avoid disappointment, and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the atmosphere cosy and buzzing. A few days later we chanced our arm as a walk in for lunch and able to be seated at 'the barrel' right by the till, but this just adds to the novelty of POTL. Fabulous place, you must try it!
We love PoL. Always amazing! Cant wait to come back
Fabulous food and great warmth and enthusiasm from the staff.
Great food. Great flavours
Really memorable lunch and very hard to fault. If pushed, the only thing I can think of is that my daughter’s pudding was very sweet, but as she loved it and I had an extra small plate instead, I am not sure this even counts as a fault.
Excellent as usual
most uncomfortable barstools in the world! Everything else was great but please replace with something you can sit on and enjoy your meal from
Had such a lovely time. Staff very friendly and food amazing. Would definitely recommend.
An amazing meal and I’d recommend it to anyone
Amazing. Best meal we've had in a while.
Thank you for such an amazing dining experience, we fully enjoyed the food and service and look forward to visiting you again.
