We went for the set lunch at £20 for three courses. Had been really looking forward to trying this restaurant having been fans of Rick Stein on the TV. Very limited choice available, two fish dishes and a steak at a supplement. The plaice came with a side of new potatoes and I ordered the mackerel which had a sliced tomato on the side, but was advised that it came with no side! Anything else was extra yet surely every main course should come with a side of potatoes of some description or salad???? (One sliced tomato doesn’t count as this!) My husband and friends order the plaice, very disappointing. The skin was still slimy as if it had literally just come from the sea and being a very thin fish they spent the whole time picking for bones. Better if this had been filleted. Of course it would have been smaller but at least you could eat it all. We were staying in Polperro, had the best fish and chips we’ve ever eaten there the following evening. Not to be missed in the ‘Three Pilchards’ if anyone is in the area. Superb! £12. Eat you heart out Rick, we won’t be returning or recommending, very disappointing.

Excellent meal and stay . A very relaxing place to be in . Staff really great , nothing too much trouble and all very friendly. No pretentiousness which we loved . Our room was very comfortable, bed and linen superb . Enjoyed being able to go through the house to Ruby’s bar as well . Lovely relaxing lounge also . Decor everywhere shows great attention to detail

We had the three course lunch which for £19.95 was such a bargain. Not a huge range but my friend and I had a different three courses and all were superb. Service attentive but understated which is just how I like it and the atmosphere was relaxed Would highly recommend if your are visiting Padstow - which by the way is a very pretty village with a lovely harbour

All elements of our visit were exceptional. Yes, it is expensive, but the quality of the food and the service, render it worth 5 stars throughout.

Excellent lunch as always, St. Petroc’s is our favourite Stein restaurant we love the more intimate atmosphere and the food yesterday was outstanding. We had the set lunch and the Mackerel and plaice were seriously good ( so was the sticky toffee pudding !!! ) The service was excellent, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We will be back ( September hopefully ) Thank you

First visit for our family, 3 out of the four of us very happy with all three courses and our drinks selection, my daughter not impressed with her plaice but mostly because she hadn’t realised there were so many bones! Excellent service, nice cosy atmosphere, it made a fitting end to our holiday and we were glad we had travelled in the rain to experience it.

Food and ambiance fabulous. Cosy and relaxed restaurant. However it was a shame the service did not match the quality of the food. The waitresses seemed more attentive to each other rather than their guests. Rob in Ruby’s made us great cocktails and was very welcoming. Thank you.

As critical 'food and hospitality hedonists' we have been connoisseurs - if that is not too pretentious/strong a word to describe our relationship with the Stein brand - for nearly thirty years. From Porthleven to Sandbanks, we've not been disappointed with our experiences. Here's hoping we might get as far as Mollymook/Aus one day!

Poor service as the waiter spilt water on the table and did not clear it up, the service is not a patch on the seafood restaurant.
