Sneak a peek at the website to find out more about Paul’s life and the experiences he has brought to his business, one of which was spending two years working with the late and great Gary Rhodes, and three years working with Gordon Ramsay, then with Marcus Wareing.
Paul Ainsworth blew-in to Cornwall, and instantly fell in love with the place, and Padstow itself, bringing with him a raw energy which translates to his food. Menus are eloquently explained and food artistically presented.
No 6 is an intimate restaurant located in the heart of picturesque Padstow in a beautiful, tastefully-decorated Georgian townhouse beautifully complementing its local surroundings.
Here, Paul focuses on modern British foods based around locally-sourced Cornish produce. He achieved his Michelin Star for excellence in 2013, and also has four AA Rosettes (last one achieved in 2016).
To put the record straight, Paul does not see himself as in competition with Rick Stein (he does not specialise in seafood). He showcases local artisan foods based around fresh ingredients served in a simple style, making No 6 Padstow’s “premier gastronomic address”.
