Rick Stein's Porthleven restaurant will not reopen again following coronavirus lockdown

The team behind Rick Stein's restaurant in Porthleven, Cornwall, has confirmed it will not reopen again.

They have thanked customers for their support over the years but were sad to announce its permanent closure.

The restaurant is one of two that will stay closed after lockdown, alongside Marlborough in Wiltshire.

The Porthleven eatery opened in 2014 and is one of four Rick Stein restaurants in Cornwall.

The group was established by Rick and Jill Stein more than 45 years ago.

A statement posted by the group on social media read, "We are very sad to say that our Porthleven restaurant will not be reopening.

"Thank you to all of our customers who have supported us. We hope you will find your way to our other restaurants where perhaps we can share fond memories of nights overlooking the romantic harbour."
