Prawn on the Lawn
This seafood bar, restaurant and fishmonger provides the perfect spot to snap up something tasty for dinner, or sample dishes prepared by the talented kitchen team. Everything is sourced from day boats in Devon and Cornwall and the offering changes daily, making for the ultimate taste of the coast in the capital.
Why not start by tucking into a selection of small plates such as whole mackerel with n’duja and fennel; seared tuna with soy, mirin, spring onion and chilli; and Porthilly mussels with clams and manzanilla? Also up for grabs are delicious Porthilly oysters, which can be served raw or deep-fried with garlic crème fraîche. A relaxed, sociable dining experience is encouraged with the flavoursome sharing platters – look out for the fruits de mer, which includes bountiful portions of crab, mussels, cockles, clams, crevettes, langoustines, oysters and scallops. Perhaps you’ll be tempted by the mouth-watering whole grilled lobster or crab with lime and coriander butter. All of the dishes are complemented by micro-brewed beer and wine from small independent vineyards. A visit is a must.
