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.

Visited from London. Well worth the trip! Such friendly staff and 5 stars for food and service which is so rare to find. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. All social distancing measures in place perfectly! Will be back! 100%

Hi I would like to say the service was excellent, but unfortunately my my friends wife and my wife and myself were very disappointed with our fish and chips, we all agreed that the fish was mostly battered, I was looking for the fish, I should of complain there and then but we are not that type as for my friends husband he was very pleased with his meal. Kind regards Julie, husband Andy Bazley

We are real foodies and eat out a lot and I have to say that was the best main course I’ve had in a long time. Everything all four of us ate was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We have just bought a house in Looe and this will be our local!

Lovely food and great staff, - the only disappointing part was atmosphere and that is down to covid as dinning area felt empty and stark.The cutlery was on the table in a plastic bag but then some cutlery was brought to the table - take the plastic bag and the old bottles of hand sanitiser away from the table makes a poor impression made if feel like a cheap canteen.
