Sample Lunch Menu

PLEASE BE AWARE WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT OUR OPERATION WILL LOOK LIKE WHEN WE ARE ABLE TO OPERATE AGAIN. IT IS LIKELY THAT IS WILL BE A LOT MORE OF A SIMPLER OFFERING PLEASE SEE OUR COVID-19 PAGE

 

Lunch overlooking the harbor isn’t easy to find in Padstow but luckily we at The Basement are right on the quay with stunning views of the yachts and fishing boats, and perfectly positioned for everyones guilty pleasure…people watching! Lunch is a casual affair run on a first come first served basis so no reservation is required.  However between mid-September until the end of May we do offer a Sunday lunch which is advisable to book.

The menu is aimed at fresh, quick easy lunches from the obligatory burger right through to the freshest of local fish and shellfish.  It also features salads when the weather warms and some lighter sandwich options as well as a soup or two.

Not to mention when the boys can get 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!

Lunch menu is served from 12-3pm

Additions

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.
