About Us


Seasonally Sourced. Locally Made

Award-winning Chef Benjamin Palmer returned to his home town of Looe to open The Sardine Factory Restaurant in July 2018. Ben’s passion in the kitchen has bagged him a number of awards, including reaching the quarter finals of Masterchef: The Professionals. It has always been a dream of his to open a restaurant in the town that he grew up in. Ben & his team were delighted to receive the prestigious accolade of a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2020.

The Sardine Factory has 80 covers overlooking the stunning harbour with a menu reflecting the ethos of Looe and a passion for local seasonal produce, with an abundance of sustainable fish dishes.
