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.
We had bar stools which was a unique experience, the food was incredible, and we had the most wonderful evening.
In our opinion this is our favourite food experience in padstow,we try and get to padstow a couple of times a year and the first reservation we make is with prawn on the lawn.We love the casual atmosphere the excellent service and of course the food and wine ps keep up the good work see you soon Nigel and Clare
As usual, great food, great night out
Great food and staff and a really good dining experience but generally over priced was our feeling. A small basket of bread per table ( as in France) would also be a nice touch we felt and would give us something to nibble while we dithered over the scrummy menu.
We have eaten at most places in Padstow and this is undoubtedly the best. The dishes are far more creative than some of the so called bigger names and the ambiance is warm and informally efficient . The staff are friendly and personable and very ready to offer informal advice.We had seven of the small plates and none disappointed and some where stunningly good . Excellent in every way and good value for this standard of food
Superb, fresh seafood and fish,prepared with flair and complemented by a good wine list
We were advised to come & visit - what a little gem. Great food, staff & atmosphere
Great food lovely atmosphere
Great meal, wonderful atmosphere, superb service.
Loved it. Great food and they made Poppy our cockerpoo feel most welcome. We will be back.
Wonderful informal and cosy fish restaurant in the heart of Padstow serving some of the best seafood you can get including the best oysters I’ve ever eaten - both raw and (just) cooked.
2nd visit of the week with great food and service with really friendly and welcoming staff. Awesome small fish plates, especially the hake and cauliflower. A very happy 5 yr old too! Can’t wait to return next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.. great service, excellent recommendations, fantastic food and an excellent bottle of Harlyn wine to go with it!
Our first time, but when we’re on hols in Cornwall again, we’ll definitely be back. We loved it.

Excellent ambience service and food. Only aspect not perfect were toilet facilities. Would still highly recommend this fantastic restaurant to all.
One of the best meals my husband and I have had in ages. Lovely friendly staff, great atmosphere and the food was outstanding. Extremely fresh, excellent variety of fish & shellfish and delicious flavours. The Sancerre was also particularly good.
Amazing time as always! Food was Devine and staff friendly as ever. Thankyou!
Fabulous as always. Prawn on lawn and fried oysters amazing
