The Rick Stein Group has launched a pop-up restaurant in the Padstow space that usually houses Rick Stein’s Cookery School, which is to remain closed until the autumn.

Called Stein’s on the Quay, the pop up has been framed as 'a love letter to the famed fish and seafood of Cornwall'.

Billed as a more casual offering to the group's flagship The Seafood Restaurant, which is also located in Padstow, Stein’s on the Quay features a 'concise' à la carte menu overseen by head chef Nick Evans.

Starters include Cornish crab wakame with cucumber salad and wasabi mayonnaise; ceviche of bass with chipotle, pomegranate seeds and coriander; and a prawn cocktail with tomato and cucumber. 

Mains, meanwhile, feature a lobster thermidor; moules frites; and a fruit de mer platter of crevettes, mussels, prawns, crab claws, oysters and scallops.

“I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve managed to turn around Stein’s on the Quay in such a short amount of time," says the group's wine and beverage director, Charlie Stein.

"When we heard that restaurants were able to reopen but the cookery school would have to remain shut for the time being, it seemed like the most logical solution to utilise the amazing space we have up here.

"I’m really proud of the menu, it’s simple but delicious food which lets the spanking fresh seafood and fish do the talking. If I were on holiday in Padstow, this is exactly what I would want to eat overlooking the estuary, with a good glass of wine in hand.”

It was reported last month​ that the group had permanently closed its Rick Stein seafood restaurants in Marlborough, Wiltshire, and in Porthleven, Cornwall, following the Coronavirus lockdown. 

The rest of the group's estate, which also includes restaurants in Barnes, Sandbanks, Winchester and Falmouth, all reopened on 4 July following the easing of the Coronavirus lockdown.

According to the group, 5046 guests dined in its restaurants over the course of the opening weekend.
