Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw also have contributed to the fame of Padstow and its cuisine. In Padstow you can try fresh and local produce that you can later on try at The pubs near the harbour and the cafes serve traditional Cornish dishes and delicious seafood. Where to eat though? Think about it as you sip your favourite wine and some charcuterie at BinTwo.
