The Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar

The Harbourside Refuge, Restaurant and Bar by Michael Caines

The Harbourside Refuge by Michael Caines, located in Porthleven, the southernmost port on the mainland of Great Britain. Its protected harbour was originally created as a safe haven for sea vessels travelling along the beautiful yet rugged south Cornish coast.

Here, Michael Caines has created a safe haven for all lovers of food and drink who choose to make their way to this idyllic spot in fine weather or foul.

When the sun is shining, there is truly no where more beautiful on earth; and when the sea is rough, the waves breaking on the harbour wall, there is no where in the UK more dramatic and suggestive.

Michael invites you to discover this magical spot to sample and enjoy his acclaimed, informal foods and cuisine throughout the day and evening.

Please feel free to pop in for coffee and a pâtisserie, breakfast, lunch & dinner or for a drink in the bar area.

Michael has long been a champion of the South West and its outstanding larder. Here at The Harbourside Refuge, Michael and the team work directly with producers and suppliers, utilising the abundance of fabulous and world-class produce and ingredients literally on his Cornish doorstep.
