Situated on the outskirts of Padstow’s bustling town centre, Greens of Padstow is a restaurant with a bit of a difference, namely that it’s also home to a mini golf garden which overlooks the famous harbour. Offering food throughout the day from breakfast time all the way through to dinner, Greens’ menu aims to showcase fresh local produce in an uncomplicated way that allows the flavours to all shine through. With its panoramic views of the Camel Estuary and beyond, Greens is the ultimate peaceful spot to come and enjoy some high-quality cooking and perhaps even a quick post-lunch game of mini golf.
There’s a wonderfully rustic feel to the restaurant with its stripped wood tables and bare stone walls, while bi-folding windows open out to give the space a bright and airy feel. There are also a few outdoor tables at Greens allowing for al fresco dining during the summer. Friendly staff are always on hand to take your order and answer any questions you may have about the menu.
When it comes to the food offering, dishes are inspired by the seasons meaning that the menu changes regularly throughout the year. Breakfast at Greens is served until 11:30 and includes everything from a Philip Warren bacon sandwich to French toast served with maple syrup, Greek yoghurt at fruit. There’s a choice of sandwiches, burgers and more substantial plates available for lunch, but you should come to Greens in the evening if you’re looking for a full three-course affair. Expect starters such as chicken satay wings and beetroot cured salmon, while mains might include confit duck leg with parmentier potatoes and a port reduction, and pan-fried sea bream with a lemon and tarragon sauce.
A decent wine list accompanies the food menu with plenty of options available both by the glass and bottle.
