Michael Caines has announced The Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar has opened for a soft launch after having acquired the site in July.
The Harbourside Refuge will offer a “relaxed” dining experience inspired by its sea-side setting and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner between Wednesday and Sunday.
The Harbourside Refuge menus will change with the seasons but will have an emphasis on fish and seafood with local produce in dishes such as: Cornish mackerel with gooseberry and grain mustard relish, and Cornish crab, prawns and avocado salad plus Cornish steaks from the grill.
The Michael Caine sCollection has appointed Andrew Griffiths to the team as restaurant manager. With over 25 years’ experience in the hospitality industry Griffiths said he is “thrilled” to be working with Caines at The Harbourside Refuge.
Caines said: “I am very excited about the opening of The Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar, which is our second opening this year in Cornwall. 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.”’
The Harbourside Refuge is Caines’ second venture in Cornwall and joins the Michael Caines Collection which currently comprises luxury country house hotel and restaurant Lympstone Manor, The Cove at Maenporth, and a new project in Exmouth.
