Celebrity chef Michael Caines has bought Rick Stein's former Cornish restaurant in Porthleven.
The news marks Michael’s second venture in Cornwall and will be part of the Michael Caines Collection.
Currently he owns the luxury country house hotel and restaurant Lympstone Manor in Devon, The Cove at Maenporth in Falmouth, and is starting a new project in Exmouth.
The team behind Rick Stein's restaurant in Porthleven announced on 22 June that it would not reopen again.
Now Michael Caines has bought the harbourside restaurant where he will serve Cornish produce to both locals and tourists.
The Devon-based chef said, “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".
The restaurant is currently closed.
It is not known when it will reopen under Caines lead.
