Mark Whittle, Preston City Centre BID Manager, said: “We understand the investment was planned for early 2020, but put ‘on ice’ due to the pandemic. 

“Yates has been a popular brand in the city centre for decades, but Slug & Lettuce offers something exciting, new, and even more popular. 

“With a great reputation for cocktails, dining, and décor, it will be a really good addition to the city centre’s strong offer”.
