Our story

Rick and Jill Stein started our family run business back in 1975, and today we employ over 600 happy staff. The business has grown from the first flagship Seafood Restaurant in Padstow to 10 restaurants across the south of England, plus hotel rooms, cookery school, shops and an online shop.
Rick and Jill are still heavily involved in the business, as are their three sons Ed, Jack and Charlie.

We see ourselves as being in the ‘cheering up industry’ trying to make people smile with great food, drink and experiences.
