With the long Easter weekend coming up, here are our top tips for things to do and places to eat. So weather you’re on your hols in Cornwall or planning a lesiurely day out in London, Poole or Winchester, we’ve got you covered.

The Seafood Restaurant – Head to our flagship restaurant in Padstow to experience where it all started, after a relaxing wander along the Camel Estuary towards Hawker’s Cove. Allow 45 minutes each way to make it nice and leisurely and to allow for plenty of time to take photos of the beautiful views.

St Petroc’s Bistro – Serving up a mixture of Rick’s timeless seafood dishes alongside great quality steaks, head for lunch or early dinner after mooch around the shops in Padstow to take advantage of our Prix Fixe menu. Two courses for £17.95 or 3 for £19.95.

Stein’s Fish & Chips – Located at the end of the Camel Trail, our Fish & Chip restaurant and takeaway is in the perfect spot for a post bike ride treat.

Rick Stein’s Cafe – The family friendly, relaxed vibe of our cafe in the heart of Padstow is ideal if you’re looking for a meal to keep both yourself and little ones happy. It’s a two minute walk from the harbour, so crabbing is a popular pre-lunch activity from our diners.

Stein’s Seafood Bar – Enjoy platters of the freshest seafood whilst taking in the atmosphere from our working fishmongers. Expect to find lobster, crab, oysters, mussels, prawns and more on the menu. All of which go hand in hand with a glass of fizz.

The Cornish Arms – Stop by for a pint and bite to eat after exploring the nearly beaches like Harlyn, Trevone and Constantine. All within just a few miles of the pub.

Rick Stein Fistral – There’s nothing quite like eating freshly cooked fish & chips whilst watching surfers at Fistral. Maybe even treat yourself to an ice cream too, if the sun is shining.

Rick Stein’s Fish, Falmouth– If you love classic fish and chips, Falmouth is calling you. Choose from cod, hake, haddock or plaice paired with Rick’s famous tartare sauce and mushy peas for the perfect lunch. Afterwards head over to the National Maritime Museum to check out their new Titantic Stories exhibition.

Rick Stein Winchester – With its beautiful cathedral, city mill and well known Hyde Abbey Gardens to explore, a day out in Winchester is definitely a winner over the Easter weekend. Join us for a leisurely lunch or early dinner to enjoy our set menu – two courses for £19.95 or 3 for £24.95.

Rick Stein Sandbanks – Whether you want to explore Studland Bay, take a boat trip over to Brownsea Island or brave some watersports in Poole Harbour, Sandbanks is great place to spend a long weekend. Our restaurant is open 10am-10pm on Saturday and 10am-9pm on Sunday, so pop in for a drink and bite to eat whenever works for you.

Rick Stein Barnes – A leisurely walk along the Thames is a must before dining in Barnes. Then pull up a stool at our seafood bar to watch our chefs shuck oysters, assemble seafood platters and plate up sashimi.
