Renowned chef Michael Caines has taken over a restaurant in Cornwall to add to his collection of hospitality establishments.
Caines has acquired The Cove at Maenporth in Cornwall from Arty Williams and Annette Rickard who have operated the business for the last 17 years.
He will launch his first venture across the Cornish border in March following the restaurant’s annual closure, during which a light refurbishment in the kitchen will be carried out.
The eatery is situated just outside of Falmouth and enjoys views across the Bay nestled just above the beach.
Once open, The Cove will join Lympstone Manor Hotel, a consultancy at Kentisbury Grange Hotel – the Coach House by Michael Caines and his newest venture in Exmouth launching this summer.
The restaurant will offer a relaxed and informal approach to dining, serving morning coffee, lunch, afternoon snacks and dinner.
The menu will feature both a brasserie style à la carte menu and a tasting menu which will feature some of Michael’s signature dishes.
He says: “I am delighted to be able to take on the restaurant and work with the dedicated team to continue to champion the best of Cornish produce in this informal and beautiful setting. We wish Arty and Annette all the best for the future and thank them for entrusting this fantastic property to us.”
During the closing period, the current team at The Cove will be heading to Lympstone Manor to understand and hone their craft in the anticipation of a new style of service and cuisine on offer this summer, with reservation details launched in late February.
Lympstone Manor Hotel, Devon opened in 2017 to much critical acclaim, and it continues to develop at pace with exciting plans for 2020, to be announced shortly.
