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.
Very nice meal, great service and reasonable prices. Wine list wasn't exhaustive but quite comprehensive. Curry Hummus was especially nice. Will definitely go back some day.
A very enjoyable experience as always thank you
Probably the best restaurant in Looe
The smoked haddock scotch egg was exceptional. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed all our food. Thanks.
Lovely restaurant with beautiful decor in a great location. Delicious food - lots of choice. Excellent service!
We love going to the Sardine factory, lovely freshly cooked food, very interesting menu but also straight forward fish and chips available. Wine reasonably priced, good service and now that the sound has been sorted out a great atmosphere.
Food was super and the staff did a great job Thank you
Fantastic fresh fish.
A great addition to the eating out offering in Looe with stunning views. A bright and airy restaurant where the tables have lots of space between them (so you dont feel crammed in) We had the breads to start with and then either the fish special or the fish and chips. Perfectly cooked, not greasy and a good size portion as well. The puddings looked a little too fussy for us so it would be nice to see something traditional/a bit simpler. A wider selection of dishes - maybe two extra starters and two mains would be good and encourage us to eat here more regularly as the limited menu means we dont eat here as often as we would like/could. Excellent serving staff, attentive but not over fussy and we did not feel hurried or rushed at any time.
Wonderful seaview, delicious fresh fish!
More menu choice would be nice .
Sophisticated yet relaxed, great atmosphere, inspiring decor. Wonderful food, we liked the limited main menu as it allows the chefs to produce the best it can be. All the staff friendly, efficient and seem to enjoy their work - great to see. Enjoyed Sardine Factory far more than Steins Seafood Restaurant in Padstow or the Ivy in London.
Great fresh food
Fantastic evening with excellent service and food. Breakfast was also excellent two days later.
Excellent food, attentive staff -would return
Very comfortable dining experience, relaxed and prompt service. Food a delight for all the famiky. Local so no driving, no parking and we would certainly book again. Thank you.
Great food, lovely restaurant,friendly staff. We will definitely be dining there again.
Reservation was easy and thank you for giving us a lovely table for my wife's birthday. We had a lovely welcome and the waitress was very friendly and efficient. Food was very good quality, and wine enjoyable too!
Amazing squid. Great value - really enjoyed it.
A lovely meal for our anniversary.
We absolutely love this restaurant. As usual the meal was delicious and the service delightful. The addition of a bit of extra acoustic absorption has made it easier to talk over dinner Really recommend this for people who want some fine dining to enjoy.
Food excellent, atmosphere relaxed, service attentive
Very good will revisit next time back in Looe
Had a lovely evening at your beautiful restaurant. Will be back!
