Winckley Square Chop House

23 Winckley Square, Preston, Lancashire, PR1 3JJ
This bustling restaurant, was once part of a convent school, but is now part of the Paul Heathcote restaurant empire, so standards are high. Indeed it was formerly known as Simply Heathcotes.

It’s town centre position makes it popular with ladies who lunch and the business world alike – the open plan kitchen meaning there’s always something to watch. Like all Mr. Heathcote’s eateries, food is carefully sourced and relies heavily on local produce and dishes.

So for starters, expect the likes of ‘A Plate of English Cured Meats with Home-Made Piccalilli’; ‘Marinated Welsh Goats’ Cheese with Tomato Salad, Shallots and Fine Beans’ and ‘Black Pudding Scotch Egg with Little Gem Salad and Salad Cream’.

Maybe to be followed by ‘Pan-Fried John Dory, Mushroom Duxelle, Spring Greens and Tarragon and Vermouth Cream’; ‘Crispy Duck Confit with Baby Onions, Smoked Baked, Red Wine and Balsamic’ and ‘Butternut Squash Tart with an Artichoke Barigoule’.

Finish with the likes of ‘Goats’ Milk Pannacotta with Fresh Berries and Basil Sugar’; ‘Trifle with Rosewater and Strawberry Jelly and Elderflower Custard’ or their selection of British Cheeses coming with Hawes Fruit Cake and Artisan Crackers.

The basement houses the Olive Press Pizzeria Bar and Grill, offering pasta, risotto's and pizza's – plus more ambitious dishes
