A Preston restaurant has beaten a number of national chains for its menu.Advertisement
Olive Tree Brasserie in the Miller Arcade in Preston city centre, and also at Lytham St Annes, was honoured at the Eat Out Magazine Awards.
Owner Dean Wilson and team picked up the Best Menu Development award at the ceremony in London.
Mr Wilson said: “Winning amongst my peers and battling it out against people like Yo! Sushi wasn’t easy but it just shows that our hard work and determination to create some of the best Greek food around has paid off.
“Over the past decade we’ve always tried to push the boundaries of conventional Greek cuisine and had great feedback from our customers about it – now it’s great to have that industry recognition too.”
Around 40 per cent of dishes at Olive Tree is made with produce directly from Greece.
Mr Wilson and team regularly visit Greece to ensure they are bringing the latest trends from the Med to the plates of Preston. He recently visited the Athens Street Food Festival.

He said: “When you offer authentic cuisine to your customers it’s really important that it is just that – authentic.
“It’s been one of the mainstays of our menus and will continue to be throughout our expansion.”
