Assistant Manager at Rick Stein, Porthleven
Claudia joined our team in Porthleven about three years ago as a part time waitress and is now assistant manager. She loves working in such a historic building with views of the harbour and the fact both her sons, Olly and Jack work seasonally in the restaurant too. When they work together it’s a real family affair and fab to watch.
Whilst living in London, working in advertising, a 20 year old Claudia flew out to Portugal on holiday, but ended up staying for seven years… it must have been the warm weather and fab seafood. It’s where her first experience of the hospitality industry came working in a fine dining restaurant over in Vale do Lobo on the Algarve – where she perfected her warm welcome and progressed up to Restaurant Manager. She missed her family and home comforts and so on her return moved to Cornwall, which is where she met her husband who works the land as a farmer a few miles from Porthleven.
Her recommendation from our menu is either crab linguine or moules marinière – both simple perfection in a bowl.
