About The Sardine Factory

Award-winning Chef Benjamin Palmer returned 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 being awarded a Michelin Bib-Gourmand and reaching the quarter finals of Masterchef: The Professionals. Ben is currently Chef de Patron at the Recently opened Platos in Plymouth and Glazebrook House in South Brent.

Excited to return to his roots, Ben’s 3rd restaurant, The Sardine Factory, overlooks the stunning harbour with a menu reflecting the ethos of Looe and a passion for local seasonal produce, with an abundance of sustainable fish dishes.

Everything was fantastic, from the service and knowledge of our waitress, to the food, which was seasoned and presented perfectly. We all had something different including extra starters as we couldn't decide what to have. Everyone said their choice was excellent and the best we had eaten in a long time. Can't wait to come back and try more. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Love the restaurant and the Sunday roast is to die for 😍. Just a couple of pedantic points. Not sure why cutlery is being bagged. Seems a waste and not very environmentally friendly. My glass isn’t bagged, my plate isn’t bagged, the steak knife that was brought over wasn’t bagged and neither were the serving spoons. Just a waste of effort and unnecessary if have been in dishwasher. The coat rack behind my seat wasn’t exactly atmospheric. Sure these could be over to the side in this level of restaurant. Like I say, being fussy as love the place and food. But feedback is feedback 😊

service was very good under these awkward covid conditions and it was very busy. Could be a bit quicker to offer drinks on arrival though.
