Sample Evening Menu

Evenings spent dining overlooking the Padstow harbour are special. Our dining area allows you to spend time with your friends and loved ones dining on the freshest of fish and locally sourced produce whilst enjoying the view year round.  Don’t worry our outside ‘pod’ is fully heated and air conditioned year round.

Dinner is a lot more formal than our other services but still friendly in its approach.  Formally laid tables and a three-course a la carte menu greet you. Our food in the evenings also goes up a notch and is aimed at a gastro/rosette level… not too fancy just well-cooked food presented perfectly giving you ‘smart local food’ with ‘casual friendly dining’

Not to mention when the boys go out to sea we have additional boards to make the most of their catch. This can include Lobsters, Whole Brown Crab, Pollock, Bass, Bream, Scallops, Turbot, Monkfish – if you’re lucky!

This dinner menu is served from 18:30 – 21:00.

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.
