Opened in 1988, St Petroc’s Bistro located in Padstow’s New Street is one for Stein fans. Specialising in bistro food from Britain, France, Spain and Italy, it is the place to go for simple food cooked to perfection.
But a stone’s throw from Padstow’s waterfront, St Petroc’s Bistro welcomes guests of all ages to enjoy a relaxed pause filled with exquisite tastes. One of Rick and Jill Stein’s founding restaurants in Padstow, the bistro is run by a skilled team who deftly craft Stein favourites to create familiar dishes infused with flavour-rich twists.
Staying true to Stein’s love of fresh, quality seafood, the menu is peppered with fish and shellfish options. Indulge your taste buds with expertly roasted hake with aioli, fennel and butter beans or opt for the deep-fried squid in semolina with pimentón mayonnaise. The best way to enjoy moules marinère is with some fresh bread to dip into the jus, while a crisp, white wine is the perfect accompaniment to a fillet of plaice.
If have tried and failed to love seafood, worry not. There are lots of choices for you, too. Tuck into a 30-day dry-aged Hereford rump steak with a bitter leaf salad or ask for the vegetarian menu and pick your perfect meal. Offering a wide range of sides, you can create the ultimate experience, whether you are popping in for a light lunch or three-course evening meal.
Exuding a real family-friendly atmosphere and welcoming dogs outside and in the bar, all the family can benefit from the laidback dining experience whilst receiving the highest quality service and food. If you have little ones with you, St Petroc’s Bistro also offers a children’s menu so your mini connoisseurs can dig into a hearty meal of their own.
Serving drinks, lunch and dinner daily, pop in and take a seat. Whether you are sipping on drinks in the cosy bar, dining in the lounge or sitting outside in the garden courtyard, there is somewhere for everyone. For larger parties, a private dining room can be hired for up to 14 guests and meals can be ordered from the full or à la carte menu.
If you have special dietary requirements or preferences, a gluten-free menu is available, and you can also speak to the staff in advance. To reserve a table, book online or give them a call on 01841 532700.
