Renowned chef Rick Stein has announced that he is set to open a restaurant in Newquay.
The restaurant, due to open this spring, will be located on the iconic Fistral beach, famous for being one of the best surf beaches in Europe.
Confirming the signing of the lease this week with business partner Jill, Stein said: “It’s exciting to be opening a restaurant on Fistral, even my Aussie friends in Sydney know it; some were lifeguards there in the 70s. I imagine the restaurant buzzing with people enjoying a great beach and the sort of food you have to have by the water.”
Renovation of the interiors will now begin with eldest son Edward working with Jill on the design.
Speaking of the opening of Rick Stein’s new restaurant, Newquay BID manager, Eve Wooldridge, added: “We are very pleased at the BID to be welcoming Rick Stein to Newquay, we feel this is a great new arrival for the town and indicates a positive image change over the last four years. Newquay’s culinary offering is now most definitely one that’s hard to beat.”
