Michael Caines has opened a fourth restaurant in Rick Stein’s former Porthleven site, which he acquired last month.

The Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar is the Michelin-starred chef’s second Cornwall site, adding to his ‘Michael Caines Collection’ portfolio which currently comprises The Cove at Maenporth, Lympstone Manor and a new project in Exmouth.

The restaurant will serve local seafood, meat, game, dairy and seasonal vegetables, and will operate across all dayparts Wednesday to Sunday.

“I am very excited about the opening of the Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar, which is our second opening this year in Cornwall,” said Caines. “Situated in an idyllic spot by the harbour in England’s most southerly port, this lovely small town is rich in culture and history and in recent years has become renowned as a food-lover’s destination.

“We are looking forward to revealing fully our plans for the restaurant in the future but for now our priority is to re-open the restaurant so that it can once more welcome locals and visitors alike with an outstanding food offering, featuring the finest Cornish produce.”
