Chef Michael Caines has acquired the former Rick Stein restaurant in Porthleven, Cornwall to mark the fourth addition to the Caines Collection.
Rick and Jill Stein announced last month that they would not be reopening their Cornish restaurant once lockdown was lifted, alongside the Rick Stein Marlborough in Wiltshire which also announced its closure.
Now the eatery will become the second venture for Caines in Cornwall and joins luxury hotel, Lympstone Manor, The Cove at Maenporth and a new project in Exmouth as part of the Michael Caines portfolio.
Caines says: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to pick up where Rick and Jill Stein have left off, taking over this wonderful property in Porthleven. We are looking forward to working with Trevor Osborne, the owner of Porthleven Harbour & Dock Company, to continue to grow Porthleven as a destination and develop a restaurant that warmly welcomes both locals and visitors through its doors. We’re looking forward to sharing details of this exciting new venture in due course.”
A statement said that the restaurant, once open, will serve a ‘contemporary interpretation of Caines’ relaxed seaside fare, shining a light on the very best Cornish produce and English wines’.
The venue is currently closed following government guidelines with more details on reopening to follow.
