Rick Stein has revealed plans to open a new seafood restaurant in Sandbanks, Dorset this autumn which will have views overlooking the water and will seat around 200. Upon agreeing the deal Rick Stein said: “Sandbanks is the perfect place for a good fish restaurant, I’ve had my eye on it ever since I passed through here 15 years ago when I travelled the coast of Britain to make the Seafood Lovers’ guide.” Rick has recently opened restaurants in Porthleven and Fistral in Cornwall alongside one in Winchester.

Rick claims it will be somewhere for more ‘inexpensive’ seafood. His business partner Jill Stein is designing the interiors she said: “We’re taking inspiration from the coast and local surroundings for the interiors.” 2015 also celebrates the 40th anniversary of the opening of The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow. The business now employs over 400 and includes nine restaurants, hotel and self-catering accommodation, retail outlets and a cookery school. Rick and Jill are both still at the helm, with all three sons involved in the business. On hearing the announcement of Rick Stein's new restaurant in Sandbanks, Bruce Grant-Braham, Chair of Poole Tourism, said: “I am absolutely delighted that Poole will be welcoming a Rick Stein restaurant later this year. "Their reputation for quality and fine cuisine is second to none, and will act as a major draw for visitors to the town. Poole already boasts a strong eating-out scene and the investment in this new restaurant will endorse that still further.” The team currently have a number of career opportunities in managerial, kitchen and front of house positions available.
