Charming bistro in the heart of Padstow

Classic French cookery is the order of the day at St Petroc’s Bistro in Padstow. Located mere steps from the harbour, we first opened our doors over 30 years ago with a menu akin to a relaxed Parisian bistro – think moules or fish soup to start followed by a great quality steak frites with béarnaise sauce and a large glass of Bordeaux.

Whilst we’ve got you, we must recommend factoring in time before or after your booking for a cosy cocktail in Ruby’s Bar next door where Charlie Stein’s very favourite drinks are created daily by our expert bartenders.
