Paul Ainsworth, Number Six, Padstow.

On Saturday evening Lulu and I went to Padstow as part of our stay at the Scarlet we went to Paul Ainsworth, Number 6.

The restaurant is very small and homely and really feels special.

While we looked over the menu we were given some warm olive and onion bread and some butter and a salmon dip with a pork crackling topping. Very nice.

We then shared a starter of mackerel I didn't love it but Lulu enjoyed it more. It was served on a celeriac remoulade. It was a bit to mustardy for my liking.

For mains again we shared. We had the Cornish sea bream, with sage and onion, roast chicken skin and a brown shrimp dressing.
We also had pork loin with some pork shoulder, crackling, scallops and apple.
Both were really great. I loved the combination of the fish and chicken skin.

One thing I wasn't so keen on was that they really pushed the side dish of asparagus on us, I get they want to sell it but they almost didn't leave us an option to say no. However on a good note they did do us some chips when they weren't on the menu.

For dessert I had sliced banana and chocolate mousse with pastry layers between them with peanuts on top and passion fruit sorbet.
Lulu had caramelised vanilla loaf with milk ice cream. Both were really lovely.

We then headed back to the hotel full to the brim of delicious food.
