Michael Caines acquires Rick Stein's Porthleven restaurant

Chef-restaurateur Michael Caines has acquired Rick Stein's Porthleven restaurant.

The site was one of two that the Steins said last week would not reopen following lockdown.

The restaurant is the latest addition to Caines' collection, which also includes the five-AA-star, 21-bedroom luxury country house hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant Lympstone Manor, which opened in Devon in 2017, the Cove at Maenporth in Falmouth, and a new project in Exmouth.

Caines said: "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.'

Osborne added: "It is with great pleasure that I shall welcome the distinguished and popular chef, Michael Caines, to Porthleven. His reputation goes before him and I know that he will not disappoint. I much look forward to his new venue opening."

The venue is currently closed due to government guidelines.
