About The Sardine Factory
Award-winning Chef Benjamin Palmer is returning to his home town of Looe to open The Sardine Factory Restaurant in July 2018. Ben’s passion in the kitchen has bagged him a number of awards, including reaching the quarter finals of Masterchef: The Professionals in 2011 and he is currently Chef de Patron at the 2 AA* Greedy Goose restaurant in Plymouth and Glazebrook House in South Brent.
Excited to return to his roots, Ben’s 3rd restaurant, The Sardine Factory, will have 60 covers overlooking the stunning harbor with a menu reflecting the ethos of Looe and a passion for local seasonal produce, with an abundance of sustainable fish dishes.

Excellent food and service. Thank you
Brilliant again! Lunch this time and can’t fault it. So glad we live locally and can go when we want.
Just 4 stars for atmosphere as it was quiet but that’s a wet Wednesday in November for you! It was a fantastic meal, and wish we lived nearer to come again.
Impressive place. Clean, tidy and great service. Food was cooked beautifully. An enjoyable experience. Will certainly return. Thank you
Great food, great service and great atmosphere!
This was a lovely evening for fifteen in our party. Food and service excellent and we were lookef after well by Sophie. Will certainly return.
Fantastic food, good service.
We had a beautiful meal, sitting at a window table overlooking the river. I had the crab linguine which was amazing! Have highly recommended to friends and family!
Best meal and service I have experienced in a restaurant for a long time. Brilliant value for money thank you.
Really enjoyed our first meal at the Sardine Factory - only negative was the harsh Lighting where we were sitting . As a lighting specialist, please tone it down so tables near the windows can enjoy the night time view of the harbour and the candle light. Otherwise brilliant.
Superb fish dishes. Looking forward to our next meal there.
Lovely food. Lovely surroundings, excellent service. You do need to book for Sunday lunch as it gets very busy, but the roast dinners are delicious. We were lucky to have Ben cooking the first time and the food was out of this world. Not quite so tasty when he is not there, but still excellent. The staff are delightful, nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.
Interesting restaurant with good food, a good asset for Looe which needs a variation of restaurants
Excellent food and atmosphere. They also made us feel very special as it was our wedding anniversary.
Fantastic family seafood lunch. The food was enjoyed by all and we'll be back again next holiday.
Food was absolutely delicious thank you for a wonderful lunch will definitely come again !
