The self-titled ‘Rick Stein’ restaurant will offer classic seafood dishes such as Dover sole meunière, turbot hollandaise and fruits de mer, alongside a more casual lunch time menu with dishes such as a crab salad and moules frites.

On signing the lease with business partner Jill, Rick said: “Sandbanks is the perfect place for a good fish restaurant. I’ve had my eye on it ever since I passed through about 15 years ago when I travelled the coast of Britain to make the Seafood Lovers’ Guide. Somewhere to drop in for local lemon sole, oysters or crab I thought, and now my dream has come true.”

“It’ll be a place for some informal, inexpensive seafood maybe coming off Sandbanks beach or for spending some time on the Poole harbour side of the restaurant eating lobster or Dover sole, drinking lovely chilled white Burgundy and thinking how relaxing a view over the water can be. I’m very excited.”

The team at Sunseeker Poole are very much looking forward to following the developments of this restaurant in the months leading up to its launch and are sure once it is open that it will become an integral part of the local Sandbanks community.
