The Seafood Restaurant

"I've never thought of our restaurants as temples of gastronomy, they're just places where the fish is fresh and exhilarating and the atmosphere is alive and full of fun. The way we cook and the relaxed way the staff look after you in the restaurants is our idea of what seaside holidays in a very pretty fishing port on the North Cornish coast are all about."  Rick Stein

Rick Stein’s famous recipes
Established by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975, The Seafood Restaurant is famous for establishing an international reputation for imaginative cooking of the very freshest fish and shellfish.

Seafood Bar
We have a seafood bar right in the middle of the restaurant where you can watch chefs assembling platters of oysters, langoustines and sashimi. No reservations are required for the bar and you can order anything from the a la carte menu. 

Fresh fish and seafood
Our menu uses the freshest fish and seafood that is often landed right here on our doorstep by local fishermen.

Stephane Delourme
Our head chef, Stephane Delourme and his team create simple seafood dishes with fresh and classic flavours using Rick Stein’s famous recipes.  

Inspiration from Rick’s travels
Over the years the menu has developed and you can expect to see dishes such as; fresh oysters and langoustines, mussels, turbot, dover sole, lobsters and sashimi. Plus we also have fish dishes from Goa, Thailand and Bali as well as classic French dishes like lobster thermidor and bourride together with some of Rick’s own creations like a casserole of brill with cep mushrooms.

Coastal luxury
Designed by Jill Stein, the restaurant offers a vibrant and relaxed atmosphere with its blonde wood floor, white walls, contemporary art and tables dressed in white linen.
