About The Sardine Factory

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.

Never had a bad meal here! The food is phenomenally tasty, brilliantly executed, using seasonal and local produce. Cannot wait to return again!!
Incredible food and lovely service, the haddock scotch egg was a highlight - will definitely be back
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.
Perfect Sunday roast
First time at the restaurant and loved it. The food was outstanding and we will be back very soon. Thanks everyone
The food was excellent and tasty. Very covid safe.
Lovely food and service
Great food as usual and really pleasant experience overall. Love it
Really enjoyed our evening- thank you for such a special dining experience. So delighted to have you in Looe
As always, a stunning meal from start to finish. Wonderfully friendly staff and food of a truly high standard. Worth every penny!
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 😊
Really lovely meal with excellent Service - thank you!
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.
Our first visit after being recommended from a friend. It didn’t disappoint and will 100% be coming back.
Exceptional food, freshly and superbly cooked. Brilliant atmosphere, the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Can’t wait to return. Chef Palmer and his staff in the kitchen are first class.
Fantastic meal, lovely atmosphere. Quick service despite the restaurant being fully booked.
An excellent meal in lovely surroundings.
