Padstow Seafood

Keeping seafood local

Our seafood is the best in the west. Mostly caught within a few miles of our front door and dropped off by the local fishermen themselves, it couldn’t be fresher.

Our namesake mussels come from just across the estuary and are dropped off up to twice a day by the boys from Rock Shellfish. You can practically see them gathering the catch from our front door.

Keeping it local is important to us Cornish folk. Our lobsters and whole brown crab are provided by Jason Nicolas and his boat Lisa-Marie, a Padstow local from a long chain of descendants. He also happens to be the accordion player in the shanty group Fisherman’s Friends. We are lucky enough to have delicious crab meat dropped straight to our door; cheers guys!

Lee wicks, can often be found dining with us when he’s not fishing for the mackerel that you’ll find on our specials board. Lee owns the Emma-Kate (nothing to do with daves emma!) a tripping boat that provides fishing for all ages and abilities.

For all things bass we turn to many of the local day boats, all highly regarded fisherman in the area. You’ll often some of them sipping a cappuccino with us, chatting all things bass .

If you’re looking for a taste of fresh Cornish fish, then look no further than the seafood served in Padstow. Our suppliers work tremendously hard in all weathers to deliver their catches straight to our door and we couldn’t be prouder to serve their seafood. We take our hats off to them and support everything they do in protecting our stocks by fishing sustainably, whilst taking pride in their work and produce.
