About Prawn on the Lawn

Prawn on the Lawn in Islington is a fully licensed fishmonger and restaurant situated near to Islington’s buzzing Upper Street. Established in 2013 by Rick Toogood and his wife Katie, it began life as a seafood bar and fishmonger but has now been extended to include a 16 seater basement restaurant, serving only the freshest seafood and tapas-style fish dishes. With only an A1 cold-food licence, Prawn on the Lawn serves creative plates including scallop ceviche, seared tuna and our signature Prawn on the Lawn dish, as well as larger platters such as Fruits De Mer, sourced directly from day boats and fish markets in Devon and Cornwall. We make every effort to be as seasonal and sustainable as possible.

In May 2015 Katie and Rick decided to move to Cornwall to set up a second restaurant, Prawn On the Lawn Padstow leaving POTL Islington in the capable hands of their GM Mike and his team. Opened in July 2015, it follows a similar format to the restaurant in Islington being a fully licensed fishmonger and seafood bar with the addition of a hot food license. This has allowed Rick to experiment with different dishes, making the most of the local produce of Lobsters and Crabs and cooking them on the charcoal grill that he got installed into the kitchen. Still a small operation with only 24 covers, the menu changes every day and aims to be as sustainable as possible, working with local suppliers in Padstow and the surrounding areas.
