Our sample Mussel box menus

Below are our current sample menus. They should give an idea of the type of food we serve.

It is our aim, that wherever possible, food is produced here on the premises from raw ingredients sourced from local suppliers and producers. We are not a fine dining establishment but more a casual everyday eatery focusing on good quality ingredients, offered at reasonable prices coupled with efficient friendly service. Influences come from all around the globe from various travels but essentially we focus on British cuisine and classic techniques giving us ‘SMART FOOD’ to eat in or take-out


The local fishermen can often be seen popping in for their morning coffee and, more importantly, with their catch.

The nature of local fishing means that the catch cannot be guaranteed so we use additions boards to showcase the shellfish and wet fish caught and landed in Padstow. These often include brown crab, lobsters, oysters, mussels, mackerel, bass and pollock.

Allergens & Dietary Requirements

At The Basement, we proudly cater for everyone. Whether you’re gluten or dairy free, vegan or vegetarian, you’ll find something that tickles your fancy and tantalises your tastebuds on our locally sourced, carefully curated menu.

We not only offer a selection of specially designed dishes to work around dietary requirements, but can also modify existing dishes – feel free to have a chat with a member of our knowledgable team to see what we can do for you.

Dairy free doesn’t stop at dinner – all our coffees and hot chocolates can be made with a variety of dairy alternatives, from soy to oat milk. Just ask to find out what we’ve got in the fridge.
