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.
Really impressive use of ingredients and interesting combination of flavours. Great experience. The only minor criticism is the proximity of your seated neighbours (bordering on personal space invasion).
Great restaurant although skip the signature dish.
Very compact dining experience but well worth it. Staff very helpful, food great. Lovely evening. Many thanks.
Delicious food , great service with extremely friendly staff . Thank you
Could not have been a better birthday meal! Absolute class!!
Absolute dream! We were on our honeymoon and love seafood, prawn on the lawn exceeded all expectations and was an absolute delight x
Absolutely fabulous food and lovely staff!!!
Fabulous small plates meal, superb food, would recommend the tuna tapas. Lovely staff, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. Good value £84 for 5 tapas, potatoes, bread, 3 glasses of wine a pud and coffee. We were stuffed!
Excellent food and service. Decided on the Tapas menu and found the hake ,brill ,squid and mussels to be delicious; as was the side order of crispy roast potatoes. All washed down with a light and fragrant vinho verde. Our first visit to POTL but it certainly won't be our last as we visit Padstow quite often.
POYL Padstow is an absolute gem. Intimate, friendly, wonderful service and the best fish ever. In a very tourist filled area it POTL felt genuine and first class.
Really Tasty , fresh , Quality food . Great service . We will be back .
Love POTL! !
Simply couldn't fault the food and good value, even though the wine had 200% mark up on local retail price. Will be on my bucket list when I return to Padstow, perfect portion sizes and perfect food.
Great restaurant with excellent service and attention to detail. Great menu selection and lovely way to end our week in Padstow
A superb all round eating experience. Some of the best food I have eaten.
Great friendly and knowledgeable staff and delicious lobster, fried oysters and spicy potatoes!
Superb service, friendly staff and delicious food! I will be back when I am next down in Cornwall.
Great food, good friendly service; looking forward to eating at potl again.
I love Prawn on the Lawn. We came to Padstow in March 2018 for the first time and this restaurant is one of the reasons I wanted to come again, apart from the most beautiful scenery and beaches in the world! The service is impeccable and really friendly, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful. It is a small restaurant - not many covers, and it’s intimate, but I really would recommend you go!! Thank you again.
My husband and I had a truly wonderful evening last Tuesday. I booked after reading the great on line reviews and you certainly didn’t disappoint! The food was so fresh and tasty, the service was perfect and all the dishes were delivered in a timely fashion. A very pleasant happy atmosphere and I really enjoyed the different concept.
Superb place in every respect. Would highly reccomend.
Great service with wonderful food. We had 6 small plates between two if us and they were all delicious.....although Prawn on Lawn was both our favourite. All the waiters were very cheerful and helpful.
Great apart from the perch seating. We will book a table next time
