Boasting a whole lot of history between its 18th Century walls, Rojano’s in the Square is something of an institution for anyone who knows Padstow well. Sitting discretely in Mill Square not far from the harbour, it started life as the home of Tonkin Bootmakers (who made hand-sewn boots for Padstow’s fishermen) in 1905, before beginning its new culinary lease of life in 1974.
The product of local businessman Stanley Rojano’s passion for food and desire to share his delicious repertoire, Rojano’s fast became a favourite amongst intrigued locals. Serving up hearty Italian and Spanish dishes made from traditional recipes, Stan’s larger-than-life personality and game-changing cooking made for a winning combination – something that has ensured the restaurant’s legacy as one of Padstow’s favourite eateries.
Now led by Chef Director Jack Clements and part of the renowned Paul Ainsworth group, the team at Rojano’s strive to continue Stan’s work. Boasting a fun, laidback atmosphere but never compromising an ounce of professionalism, Rojano’s proffers a wonderful venue for food throughout the day and is still as popular amongst locals and visitors alike who can’t get enough of its rustic Italian and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.
If you would like to tear yourself away from your luxury cottage, Rojano’s in the Square is open seven days a week – great news for hungry tums. If you really can’t wait to dig in, it serves drinks and homemade cakes from 10am, before offering up its full menu from 12pm. Take a seat, enjoying the white-washed walls peppered with quirky accoutrements, and browse the set menus and daily specials to find a new favourite.
Whether you are looking for a no-holds-barred family feast, a modest light bite or a romantic sharing assembly, there is really something for everyone. To make sure absolutely everyone is looked after, the restaurant also offers a vegan menu (as well as catering for other dietary requirements with notice) and a ‘bambini’ menu too, so the whole family can find something that’s just right.
