If you like good food then you can’t go wrong with Padstow. The de facto foodie capital of Cornwall this is very much where it all started. And whilst it is impossible to talk about eating out in Padstow without mentioning Rick Stein the restaurant scene has exploded since the original Seafood Restaurant.
On top of a number of Stein-owned eateries a host of other master chefs have made the harbour town home. Padstow can now boast an impressive array of boutique bistros, relaxed cafes and even one of Cornwall’s three Michelin-starred restaurants.
Padstow and its surrounding villages are also excellent for pubs. There's a great choice of traditional old inns around Padstow, and of course, you can always find pasties, chips and ice cream if you prefer to eat on the go.
