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
Great location, amazing food & service. Just gutted we couldn’t go again whilst in Looe on holiday due to lockdown. We will be back.
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!
Wonderful lunch woth excellent food and service. Thank you - we will definitely come back again as soon as we can.
We visited whilst on holiday, the food was out of this world! Thank you

We very much enjoyed our lunch. The food was excellent, as was the service. We would definitely eat here again, and would recommend this restaurant.
Staff very welcoming Service good portion sizes a bit on the small side But good we did have to very good.
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.
Outstanding food and service
Absolutely delicious food, the staff were very friendly. A fantastic dinner.
Fabulous evening with friends. Great restaurant
We very much enjoyed our dinner. Great food, a tad pricey But good quality. The service was amazing especially as there were only 2 waitressess. They never stopped running around & were very attentive & professional.We enjoyed watching the kitchen brigade, they seemed very calm, organised & happy..! Many thanks
A well needed addition to Looe. We need more modern restaurants like this. Well done too on the Michellain 2020 plaque!!
Fantastic meal with our 5 year old twins. Great service and very well organised in the current circumstances.
