UK: EatDrinkSleep has announced the appointment of Jamie Porter as head chef for The Old Coastguard in Mousehole, Cornwall.

Porter will join the 14-bedroom hotel and restaurant in June. After two years at a junior level at the three-Michelin star Waterside Inn in Bray, he spent much of his subsequent career at the Stein group, included an extended spell as senior sous chef at the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow.

Charles Inkin, founder of EatDrinkSleep said: "It is such brilliant news to have Jamie joining us in Mousehole. His background at the Seafood Restaurant sits so well with our desire to make the most of our proximity to Newlyn and the fish market. Our guests at The Old Coastguard should be enjoying the very best seafood and we've huge confidence that Jamie brings just the right skills to make that happen."

Porter said: "I couldn't be happier to have been offered this opportunity in my home county. I've learned so much from my mentor at The Seafood Restaurant, Stephane Délourme, particularly about how to cook simply with fish, and I'm absolutely confident this sets me up perfectly for working at The Old Coastguard."

The Old Coastguard has been run by EatDrinkSleep since 2011 when it was bought by the Tresco Estate. The Inkin brothers also own two sister inns, The Gurnard's Head, near St Ives and The Felin Fach Griffin in the Brecon Beacons.
