Merecure Preston Samlesbury Hotel is seeing its restaurant refitted to open at the end of June.
The hotel, which was saved from administration in February this year, is on the A59 not far from BAE.
KRO Hospitality have taken on the hotel and owner Kim Eivind Krohn said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have someone of Marco’s calibre open one of his Chophouse restaurants at the Mercure Preston Samlesbury Hotel. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to continually bring the best to the venue and we can’t wait for the summer.
“Guests will also be able to dine al fresco and enjoy a brand-new terrace menu.
“The hotel is of huge importance to the region. It was recently shortlisted in the Hotel of the Year category for the 2018 Lancashire Business Awards, a title it won in 2017 and we are very pleased that we can help ensure the hotel remains an important part of the community.
“Over the years, the hotel has built an enviable reputation as being a first-class venue for celebrations, weddings, events and conferences. Its location makes it ideal for corporate, group and leisure travellers who prefer a relaxing ambience over the bustle and distractions of a city centre hotel. The arrival of Marco will now reinforce this position.”

The Chophouse chain was first launched in 2018.
Mr Pierre White said: “Chophouses go back centuries, so it’s not about inventing something that is new, more refining something that is good. I like to think that my interpretation of this classic dining experience is perfect for anyone looking for something that is without doubt a cut above the rest.”
