Rick Stein's Fish

Fishy family fun in Falmouth

While you may not always want to drag your little darlings to a Michelin starred restaurant, you probably want them to try something more tasty, exciting and nutritious than processed chicken nuggets when you eat out as a family. If you’re dining with a future-foodie at Rick Stein’s Fish in Falmouth, an innovative children’s menu proves that the kids’ carte doesn’t always have to be dumbed down or bland.

While mum and dad get their chops around fragrantly spiced dishes such as Indonesian seafood curry, Cornish chilli crab and salt and pepper prawns, kids will be wolfing down classics like moules marinière and fish tacos. There are also three tempting desserts for little mouths – the wibbly wobby fish-shaped jelly swims down the gullet particularly well. Children can enjoy two courses for £7.50 or three courses for £9.95.

And if you want even more fish for your fiver, try the three course set menu which for £23.95 sees you chowing down on the likes of pau bhaji with green chilli chutney, followed by hake alla carlina with new potatoes, topped off by sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream.

Rick Stein's takeaway

Seafood savers for seniors

If you’re not after a full-on sit down affair, Stein’s takeaway is where families can grab fish and chips, tiger prawns, fish chilli burgers or battered oysters and scoff them on Falmouth’s historic harbour. The over 60s, though, are usually the first in the queue on Tuesdays (between 12pm – 2.30pm) where they opt for value-for-money vintage lunches. Classics like battered cod, chips cooked in beef dripping, mushy peas and Rick’s special recipe creamy tartare sauce come in at £5.95.
