Our story

Rick and Jill Stein started our family run business back in 1975, and today we work with over 6oo happy staff. The business has grown from the first flagship Seafood Restaurant in Padstow to 10 restaurants across the south of England, hotel rooms, a cookery school, shops and an online shop.
The company and team may have grown but we’re proud to still be a family business.
We see ourselves as being in the ‘cheering up industry’ trying to make people smile with great food, drink and experiences.
