The Cove at Maenporth to open under the Michael Caines Collection
Renowned local Celebrity Chef Michael Caines will unveil The Cove at Maenporth, Cornwall on Tuesday 10th March, following the refresh of the kitchen and development of an entirely new menu.
The beachfront restaurant will offer a relaxed and informal approach to dining, serving morning coffee, lunch, afternoon snacks and dinner with menus designed to attract families, locals and holiday makers visiting this beautiful area and whilst championing the best of the Cornish produce.
The menu will feature a brasserie style à la carte menu offering elevated beachside fare, including Honey roasted Cornish duck with caramelised onion puree and wild garlic and dishes from the Chargrill, including Whole Falmouth Bay Sole with rosemary brown butter shrimp, parsley and capers.
The restaurant will also offer a 6-course tasting menu (£75) for evening service, which will feature Michael’s signature dishes including Ballotine of quail with raisin vinaigrette and hazelnut mayonnaise, and Fillet of Phillip Warren’s beef chargrilled with horseradish and shallot confit, celeriac puree, mushrooms and red wine sauce.
Michael has long held a passion for South-West produce, advocating many of the local suppliers through his seasonal menus including Cornish duck and fantastic seafood sourced from the coast of Cornwall, many of which feature in his famed tasting menus at the Michelin starred Lympstone Manor Hotel.
Located just outside of Falmouth in South Cornwall, the restaurant has long been a favourite for locals and those travelling to Cornwall. Appropriately named ‘The Cove’ due to its location nestled just above the golden sandy beach, the restaurant boasts uninterrupted views across Falmouth Bay and towards Pendennis Castle and the lighthouse on St Anthony Head.
During the closing period, the current team at The Cove have been training at Lympstone Manor to understand and hone their craft in the anticipation of a new style of service and cuisine on offer this summer.
Michael Caines says of his new venture: “I am really excited to be reopening The Cove as my first Cornish venture and working with the dedicated team to welcome new and familiar faces back to the restaurant. It’s a very special and beautiful place here at Maenporth Beach with an incredible outlook over the Cornish Coast and I am excited about the journey ahead of us, showcasing great produce and introducing myself to the local community”.
The Caines collection now comprises of Lympstone Manor Hotel, The Cove Maenporth and his newest venture in Exmouth launching this Summer.
