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.
A fabulous evening - thank you!
I loved this place! The food was fantastic as was the team. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
Amazing food, loved the small plate idea as allowed us to try lots of dishes. Service was relaxed and attentive at the same time. Highly recommend
We ate with you on the 9th & 15th on both visits the front of house staff were 1st class. We love the Tapas style of eating,so your small plates were just perfect. Each dish was an explosion of flavour and it would be difficult to select only one as our favorite . It was nice to meet Rick and chat about his food ethos and the way he and Katie have developed POTL , we look forward to our return in Sept and we will try Barnaby's soon . Regards Keith & Tracey
Four stunning plates of food washed down with a lovely bottle of local wine. The new hake dish was amazing. The informal and relaxed service totally complements the food. Brilliant all round. Thank you!
Just love it here always incredible in every way - staff are gorgeous food and drinks are exceptional - creative and delicious and its such a cool yet cosy atmosphere...I always find it hard to leave! Cant wait to come back again already! x
My partner & I have been here a few times now and POLT never disappoints. It is small so you do end up having a chat with your neighbours but that makes a lovely atmosphere. The food is consistently fabulous. The servers really know what they are talking about. Great little place, that I always look forward to eating at.
Very good meal. Will come again
Amazing, fresh food, every dish we had was absolutely sublime. Atmosphere amazing, service perfect, lovely staff who deserve full credit. Can't wait to try the one back home in London. Well done and keep it up.
If you like quirky and different then this is the place, great food but very limited on space, toilet and food area are almost one and the same. Staff are knowledgeable and its one to tick off the list of places to eat. Worth giving it a try.
Awesome already booked in again. Loved it food amazing and staff so helpful. Thanks to the entire team for a great evening.
Not often that I walk out of a restaurant but I take exception to sitting at a tiny, cramped bar...on uncomfortable seats, looking at a wall of ceramic tiles and then to top it all, I was asked to ‘shove up’ so even more people could sit alongside and already cramped environment. I booked expecting a table where my wife and I could enjoy great fish (we’ve eaten with you before at a ‘proper table’) There was in fact a table of two available but told it was booked. Imagine our disappointment to find out the following day, the ‘table of two’ never showed up. Thank god for Rojano’s!
Prawn on the Lawn is consistently outstanding for quality of food and service. We love it.
Thoroughly enjoyed lunch yesterday. Sri Lankan black curry stunning.
The food was absolutely amazing and the wine was sublime. This little place has bags of character and great service. We will definitely be coming back here as often as we can get to Cornwall! We can see why we’ve not been able to get in previously. Brilliantly done!
Visited many times and never disappointed. The fish is so fresh and the dishes are an inspiration and delicious. Fantastic meal. Thank you.
We had a lovely meal at the Padstow Prawn on the Lawn where the food and service were brilliant with really helpful servers guiding us when we were unsure and holding our hand through our first oysters. Would definitely come back when we're next in Cornwall.
We had a fabulous evening, great vibe, fab music, amazing food and great relaxed service.
Excellent food and service!
Fantastic fresh fish, cooked to perfection and wonderful service and atmosphere.
