Michael Caines has revealed plans to open two beachside outlets in Exmouth's multimillion-pound Sideshore regeneration project in March 2021.
Caines, best known for his five-AA-star Lympstone Manor luxury hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant, plans to open Mickeys Beach Bar and Restaurant, as well as Café Patisserie Glacerie, with colleague and pastry chef Sylvain Peltier.
Mickeys will consist of a casual bar with resident weekend DJs, as well as a first-floor restaurant featuring a retractable glass terrace with outdoor seating. The venue will be family and dog friendly, with food to eat in or takeaway.
Serving seasonal produce sourced from the south-west, the restaurant will commit to not using single-use plastics. Developed by Grenadier Estates, it will feature sustainable materials, while harnessing renewable energy technologies.
Caines said: "Mickeys has been in development for five years and I am so excited to see the building finally come to life. The interior space, designed with Design Command, is fun, vibrant and in tune with its surrounds and has the most remarkable views across the bay of Lyme.
"Mickeys will be a place to celebrate, to unwind, to pop in for a takeaway or stay late into the night, underpinned by warm hospitality and excellent food. It is a space for the local community and beyond, above all it's a place of fun. I'm incredibly excited to be able to share more over the coming months as we approach the opening."
Next door will host Caines and Peltier's Café Patisserie Glacerie, serving French pastries, house-made gelato ice-creams, coffee and milkshakes, as well as hot pies and Cornish pasties.
Peltier added: "I am proud and excited to be opening with Michael our first Café Patisserie Glacerie on the beautiful Exmouth seafront. This has been a dream of ours for the past 15 years and seeing the project come together is mind blowing. Being able to share your passion with others is an invaluable gift and we cannot wait to soon share it with you all."
The Michael Caines Collection also encompasses the Harbourside Refuge in Porthleven, which Caines bought from Rick Stein earlier this year, and the Cove at Maenporth.
