About St Petroc's Bistro, Padstow
From our 28 day dry-aged aged Chateaubriand to our Devon Ruby Red steaks, choosing something from the grill is a must when you visit St Petroc’s Bistro. Enjoy drinks in our cosy snug bar, our relaxed lounge or dine in our pretty garden courtyard. Dogs are welcome outside and in the bar.
These are clearly difficult times for the industry but throwing away colourful printed menus after a single use and providing cutlery in single use plastic bags just seems utter madness . Perhaps the use of a blackboard or smartphone would be more EF
Had a wonderful meal and felt totally safe with all the self distancing and extra measures put in place. Thank you for looking after us so well
Awful service. Inexperienced, ‘lifeless’ waiting staff, seemingly with little guidance. You could see tables all around having an equally poor experience. They had run out of all the main courses we wanted to order (and even our second options). In the end we ordered starters and dessert only. Food was ok but very slow to arrive. Wine was warm. It felt like they weren’t ready to open. I wish they hadn’t taken bookings until they felt ready
Great evening, as always! The team were fantastic as always :) My only two comments would be: 1. We missed the tapas/sharing bits, as usually order this as a pre starters course to share 2. Drinks were quite slow, but I think this was to be expected given how busy it was, and re opening is all relatively new
The food is traditional but innovative and reasonably priced, and the staff are friendly and professional. A memorable lunch!
The restaurant coped well with Covid-19 issues
Expensive for what it was. Staff did their best in difficult new circumstances.
Food was excellent but not impressed with the 12.5% service charge which has been added to the bill.
A 'disjointed' establishment with several rooms, we were in the conservatory, which lacked any atmosphere due to no other diners at the time or background music or view. 4 of us. 4 Starters, 4 mains, 3 puddings. 2 people not drinking alcohol. Bill £300. Food was very nice - as you would expect, but I have had better steak elsewhere MUCH less expensive. Pasta Ravioli - delicious - but portion size needed to be at least 3/4 times the amount served. Had to order extra fries to fill me up. All in all, good service and food was to a good standard. Somewhere like this though, you expect to pay more for the ''dining experience and to be a bit special'. I'm afraid expectations were not met and will not be going back.
A fantastic evening. First night after lockdown and the team worked really well. Food as good as ever. Thanks you for making my birthday celebrations so special
Six of us dined at St Petrocs on the 4th July, of course a celebration after months of lockdown. We had a lovely evening, the food was of the usual high standard, table service with PPE wasn’t as odd as we feared so didn’t affect the atmosphere of one of our favourite Padstow restaurants.
Overall very lovely fixed menu, excellent quality and value. Service was good especially as it was the first service since reopening. One small negative is we ordered an extra side of new potatoes and received 3 small boiled potatoes in a dish. Just felt that was a bit stingy for the price and took away from the experience a touch.
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.
It was a delicious meal in a lovely venue with great staff and an excellent waitress.
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
A wonderful place to while away an evening with great food, great wine and exemplary service as always - a true gem! We'll be back!
The whole experience was first class! We will definitely visit again.. thank you to all the staff for making a Lazy Sunday an amazing day!
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.
Amazing anniversary meal, beautiful food and lovely staff, got a little sweet treat for our special night.
Amazing food. Simply brilliant.
always excellent when we came 3 years ago made sure we were looked after throughout the meal would come back every time we stay in Padstow. Thank you
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
Absolutely superb in every way! Beautiful building inside and out, extensive menu and handily close to the lovely Ruby’s bar!
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.
