The Michelin star restaurant that's going on holiday


While most people head away over August to the seaside, it's not often an entire restaurant packs its knives and chefs' whites and relocates but Restaurant Story has never done what's expected.

Critically acclaimed chef, Tom Sellers, will close his Michelin-starred London restaurant, Restaurant Story, in August and reopen it for six weeks on the Cornish coast, at Carbis Bay, as Story by the Sea.

Book in for a five or six course menu inspired by the sea, with dishes like Crab Tart getting the playful Sellers touch to ensure that this is a meal you'll remember forever. Expert seasonal and local cocktails can be paired with the summer menu and the pop up restaurant's interioes will focus on natural fabrics with a gentle beachside vibe.

Not only will he focus his energies on creating incredible dishes from Cornwall's seafood but he is also partnering with Parley, who have recently collaborated with a series of artists on tote bags that help the charity remove plastic from the oceans. 

Each diner will be presented with a bag which represents a donation that will add up to Restaurant Story removing 50 tonnes of marine waste from the sea by the end of its six week beach stay.

The bags will also be available to purchase from the Story website for £15 with all proceeds going to help ocean clean up. Every sale will lead to the removal of 10 kilograms of marine plastic waste.

Now where are our buckets and spades?

Find Story by the Sea on the Blue Flag Beach at Carbis Bay, Cornwall, where it will take bookings for lunch and dinner, every day from 2 August to 14 September. Book your table here.
