A celebration of the sea

Opened by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975, the Seafood Restaurant is where it all began. Boasting an international reputation for serving the freshest fish and shellfish, Head Chef Pete Murt and our team celebrate the very best Cornish produce, with ingredients sourced locally to create timeless seafood dishes with simple flavours.

Take in the atmosphere from the heart of the restaurant, the seafood bar, and watch first hand as chefs prepare platters of oysters, langoustines and sashimi.

“We’ve never thought of our restaurants as temples of gastronomy, they’re just places where the fish is fresh and the atmosphere alive and full of fun.”
