About Prawn on the Lawn

Prawn on the Lawn is a fully licensed fishmonger and restaurant situated near to Islington’s buzzing Upper Street. Established in 2013 by Rick Toogood and his fiancee 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.
