The Seafood Restaurant

Riverside Padstow – 01841 532700

Very famous restaurant owned by TV Chef Rick Stein. It is superb for fish and quality of service. You will have to book well in advance to secure a table in the summer, but we will always endeavour to help our guests achieve that late booking! Let us know if you would like a reservation and we will try our best. Out of season, for that special occasion it is a definite must and stays open all the year round. The restaurant is deceptively large, very bright and airy with a wonderful ambiance which makes dining there a truly memorable experience.

The Bistro

St Petroc’ Hotel 4 New Street – 01841 532700

The Bistro has recently been extended and is very busy. It has a small, well presented menu with the accent on fish. It is informal and has a lovely atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
