Before the age of steam Padstow was a key port, but is now known primarily for tourism and fishing. The town boasts some great restaurants including Paul Ainsworth at No. 6, and Rick Stein's seafood restaurant (and very good fish & chip shop for a more modest outlay).
A glorious barbecued mackerel recipe from Great British Menu favourite Paul Ainsworth, this mackerel dish is perfect for fish lovers. Accompanied by a dreamy celeriac mayonnaise, this seafood recipe works brillantly with Parma ham and a simple mixed salad.
