We opened Prawn on the Lawn Padstow in 2015, 2 years after we opened our London site. We change our small plates menu every day (sometimes hourly!) and local fisherman land fish right to our door. We won Best UK Seafood Restaurant and we have been featured in the Michelin Guide every year since we opened.

The Wave Project

We are proud to support the Wave Project, a charity that uses the power of the ocean and surfing to help improve the emotional and psychological well-being of young people in the UK. Providing them with a supportive environment where they can build resilience, confidence, and positive relationships.


To support the charity’s important work, we are adding a discretionary £1 donation to every restaurant bill to raise funds. With these funds, the Wave Project can continue to offer life-changing support to those who need it most, helping young people to overcome their challenges and reach their full potential.
