Meet The Team

The Rock Inn has a wonderful elevated seafront location. Situated at the end of Rock adjacent to the Padstow ferry landing. The Rock Inn and premises was rebuilt in 2010 and offers a modern clean environment with fantastic panoramic views of Padstow and the Camel estuary. We have approx 65 covers in the restaurant with a further 50 covers on our wonderful balcony. Whether the weather is good or bad there isn’t a better place to relax with a drink and enjoy some of our great food on offer. We are dog friendly and have a great menu for children. We have a great selection of Beers, Ciders, Wine and Spirits. We have an extensive menu with lots of homemade dishes and specials and we source our produce locally whenever possible.

Here at The Rock Inn, we have a team of experienced and outgoing staff who all help to make your experience one that you will remember.

Whether they are the masterminds behind your delicious food, the front of house staff who welcome you from the moment you step through the door, or the bar staff expertly pouring your pints – they are all integral to the team! Make yourself at home and let us introduce ourselves.

The Team

We have a great team at The Rock Inn. Owned and operated by Sarah and Jeremy Turner, both very hands on and influential over the daily running of the business. Fronted by Miss Jess Leitch and the rest of the, at present, all girl team of locals, whether full time or part time. Some are students filling their holiday breaks as a part time job. Most have been with us for many years now.

The Kitchen has the pleasure of having our head chef Dave Townsend.
