Prawn on the Lawn Padstow was opened 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.
