i cant believe how much padstow is rick stein – but it is what makes padstow stand out from the other cornish towns – the excellence of his food always guarantees you a tasty meal, whether its from his take away fish and chips to his danish pastries from his patisserie shop. so whatever your budget you can try out something rick stein. padstow is a great place to base yourself for seeing the surrounding cornish area. our favourite place to go for lunch or to see the evening sun go down is in newquay – lewinnick lodge – situated on a headland the views are just spectacular. its always busy especially in the evenings, so best to reserve.
