Established in 2013 by Rick Toogood and his wife Katie, Prawn on the Lawn began life as a seafood bar and fishmonger near Islington’s buzzing Upper Street, and has now been extended to a restaurant, serving only the freshest seafood and tapas-style fish dishes. Within the first year of opening POTL reached No. 1 on Tripadvisor’s restaurant poll, beating even the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Raymond Blanc. They have also featured on Channel 4’s ‘Jamie and Jimmy’s Food Fight’ and BBC’s ‘Masterchef’, and look certain to maintain their position as one of the most exciting restaurants and fishmongers in London. A second site followed in seafood mecca Padstow, Cornwall, where they now live year-round. As educational as they are inventive, POTL also offers private fish-filleting classes and wine tasting and continues to support the Lobster Hatchery in Padstow, Cornwall.
