Padstow is a charming working fishing port surrounded by glorious sandy beaches, at the head of the Camel River. It is also home to Rick Stein’s food empire with the Seafood Restaurant, cookery school and his hotels.

Outside of Padstow there is plenty to explore in the area so it would make a fabulous base for any special celebration or as an off-site destination for your tea.

Rick Stein’s Cookery School:

Now in it’s 21st year the Cookery School was started  to give the chefs at The Seafood Restaurant a bit more intensive training, preparing and cooking fish and shellfish. That teaching is now passed onto guests during the cookery classes.

During this memorable cookery experience you will learn some of the trade secrets and how to cook some of Rick’s classic dishes. 

After being greeted with a glass of prosecco and canapés, you will watch two demonstrations by our chefs and then replicate the dishes before sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass or two of good wine, followed by dessert and coffee.

Sample Menu

  • Salmon with passion fruit, lime and coriander
  • Prawn molee – watch demo, cook and eat 
  • Fillet of sea bass with vanilla butter vinaigrette – watch demo, cook and eat
  • Raspberry crème brûlée

Typically, the evening would start at around 6pm and end at around 9pm
