Padstow's place to be for the nation's favourite, fish and chips.
Whether it’s a warming winter feast watching waves tumble and roll or a lazy lunch basking in summer sunshine, nothing beats the classic fish and chips for hearty seaside fodder. Sprinkled with salt, doused in vinegar or served just as they are, the smells are intoxicating, the tastes both heavenly and nostalgic.
One man in particular knows the heart-warming, tummy-filling, saliva-inducing effects of this magical coastal cuisine. With an inextinguishable passion for great quality seafood, Rick Stein has introduced countless people to the joy of fresh sea fare. And of course, no menu would be complete without the nation’s favourite at the forefront.
Opened in 2004, Stein’s Fish and Chips in Padstow pays homage to our most well-loved seafood dish. Welcoming locals and visitors throughout the year, the restaurant and takeaway provides an inviting space for fish and chip lovers to enjoy fresh tastes and a homely atmosphere. Overlooking the beautiful Camel Estuary, guests can either dine in with a glass of vino or take their food away for a cosy evening in.
Serving the classic cod and haddock, Stein’s Fish and Chips also proffers specials made up of the day’s catch. From local fish such as hake, monkfish, John Dory, sole and bass, you can choose your favourite and wait as the talented team work their magic. Battered and deep fried and served with homemade chips and mushy peas, you can also opt for an accompaniment of curry sauce and the home-made mayonnaise-based tartare sauce. Dribbling yet?
If you have special dietary requirements, fear not. Stein’s Fish and Chips cater for various needs and include gluten-free options. There is also a children’s menu for your wee ones to find something not too big, not too small, but just the right size.
With opening hours varying slightly throughout the day, it’s best to check online or give the restaurant a call before you head over. Enjoy.
