Hubby and I were in Padstow the week before last, on the way down to Penzance (via North Devon!) and got a bite to eat at Rick Stein's cafe (not the expensive posh one on the harbour front but the smaller, more informal place on Middle Street).

Expecting a hefty bill we were pleasantly surprised to see food reasonably priced.. and what great food it was. I opted for the mussels (a la mariniere) with chips (of course) while Hubby went for the seabass.... a whole one, cooked with fennel and served with the most delicious aniseedy tartare sauce. Our bill came to around £20... not bad for a celebrity restaurant. Definitely worth a visit - they don't take bookings either which is great if you are, like us, rather unorganised.

 As Rick Stein seems to own half of Padstow, he's also got a rather nice patisserie, near the harbour front that does a roaring trade in pasties. The cakes didn't look half bad either...
