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.
Fantastic as usual for me and my wife...but we'd been before and knew what to expect. Our 6 guests hadn't and they were blown away by the food, the ambience and the service. Great lunch. Thanks Rick and Katie.
Outstanding food and service you are one of the reasons we keep coming back to Padstow see you in may next year
Been to this place 3 times now , we visit prawn on the lawn when we are traveling in our moto home, stopping just over night just to eat here , excellent food and excellent everything x
I was so looking forward to this visit but it was marred by some very silly mistakes. To offer 2 red wines by the glass and to run out of one and offer a dreadful other option is at best poor Should not have to ask for a finger bowl whilst eating lobster. It's a messy job and the waiting staff should have been more switched on If you are going to leave young members of staff in charge they need to have a greater appreciation of customer service
Interesting concept and flavours but the ‘bar’ is horrendous. Uncomfortable balancing act . Forget it for long leisurely meal and if you had shopping doubly forget it . Atmosphere was manic . We felt exhausted . Worst experience of our holiday . Waiters just trying too hard to point of irritating!
It was great to be given the odd recommendation and good advice about food
We loved it here and spent the last night of our holiday enjoying the best fresh tapas whilst watching the delivery of fresh crab and lobster come in ... downside we live in Lancashire so a bit far to rebook ! Next year maybe... lovely !
The best meal we’ve had in Padstow
Just excellent, I will be back...... plus the other half x
just great--food brilliant--service great--staff delightful--great atmosphere--cannot fault it--go again definitely
Without a doubt the best restaurant in padstow. Completely worth sitting on a stool and rubbing shoulders with those dining next to you. We were lucky to have a lovely couple next door which enhanced our evening more. Will come again, and recommend to everyone I know in a heartbeat- thank you to the attentive and well rehearsed staff!
Fantastic value for top quality dishes of freshly caught local seafood
Another great meal. Next time would like to try the tapas style meals.
Thank you all for a lovely birthday lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our visit - very nice relaxed feel and friendly staff. Delicious small plates - love to have an open kitchen and to taste fish cooked in a way I wouldn't get round to doing at home. And the crushed potatoes are awesome!
A really nice dining experience. Food excellent with a mix of tapas style eating or choosing fresh from the counter. Service was excellent too! Will certainly dine here again,when next in the area.
Simply the best value for money anywhere in the UK
Prawn on the Lawn is always a great experience, we like the intimate feel of the restaurant and food is always excellent, we brought friends with us who absolutely loved it! And the service is great, relaxed and friendly but efficient and professional. Don't change a thing!
Great evening. The food was good, the scallops with nduja were a particular highlight.
Exceptional seafood and wonderful service Every dish was so tasty and well cooked all four of us loved it We will be back
Lovely meal once again. Delicious plates and excellent attentive and friendly service. We left it late to book and therefore eat at the bar on stools rather than at a table which we prefer.
Loved that you have bought in the white wine from Sardinia - Audarya
Great food and service. Can’t wait to go back!
Had a great evening food was fantastic seats a little uncomfortable but will definitely be back again soon.
Very friendly, welcoming & informed service. Superb fish wonderfully fresh & beautifully presented. Our second visit and certainly not our last.
