A new Greek and Mediterranean restaurant is preparing to open in Preston city centre.Advertisement
Olive Tree Brasserie is expanding from Lytham to the city to open in the Miller Arcade.
The restaurant has applied for a licence and is looking to open from 12noon to 1am every day.
The licence also states the restaurant wishes to have live music taking place, as the Lytham restaurant regularly sees performances from classical and contemporary artists.
Lytham’s Olive Tree currently has a TripAdvisor certificate of excellence and a four and a half stars out of five rating from 613 reviews.
Preston city centre councillor Drew Gale said: “This is wonderful news. They are a very welcome addition to the city. Their contribution to our local economy will be invaluable. I wish them every success and look forward to dining there.”
Mark Whittle from Preston’s Business Improvement District, who are currently running the Love Food Love Preston month, said: “Both restaurants are a welcome addition to an already strong line-up of places to dine.
“The Olive Tree is particularly popular in Lytham, concentraing on a lot of vegetarian produce.
“We welcome both restaurants and wish them well with their expansion in to Preston.”
The area around Miller Arcade and Crystal House is also due to soon see the opening of Caribbean restaurant Turtle Bay.
You can see the full licensing application on the city council website.
