Rick Stein Marlborough restaurant to open next month

The Rick Stein restaurant group has announced it will be opening its new site in Marlborough, Wiltshire on 8 October.

Bookings are now being taken for the new 84-cover venue at Lloran House, an 18th century Grade II-listed building.

The move is part of the group's plans to expand further beyond its Cornwall base. The location will be the chef's third outside the county, after its existing Rick Stein restaurant in Winchester and the Dorset Sandbanks venue, which opened late last year.

Rick Stein, along with group executive chef Jack Stein and newly appointed head chef Kevin Chandler, is finalising the menus, while group wine buyer Charlie Stein is putting finishing touches to the wine list.

Rick Stein Marlborough's food offering will have a heavy focus on seafood; however, in keeping with Wiltshire's farming heritage, there will also be a number of locally-sourced meat and game dishes. Menus will include some of Stein's iconic dishes, including Dover sole a la Meunière and turbot hollandaise, as well as new dishes including salt pork belly with split pea purée and sauerkraut, and baked guinea fowl with garlic beans and smoked sausage. Alongside the à la carte menu there will be a set lunch menu and a Sunday lunch menu available as two or three courses.

Jill Stein is finalising the restaurant interior with son Ed and daughter-in-law Kate, which will remain sympathetic to the Georgian architecture while delivering a stylish, contemporary feel throughout. Many original features have been restored and each room has been individually designed.

Rick Stein said: "Marlborough is such a beautiful town in a wonderful part of the country and it's incredibly exciting to be opening a restaurant there. As soon as I saw Lloran House I thought it would make the perfect restaurant and it's now really taking shape. The team have all been working hard to make everything ready for opening and I know we're all looking forward to welcoming the first customers through the door."
