A new and exciting addition is on its way to Preston Market Hall.


Tipsy Chef is a new restaurant where you can eat in or takeaway will serve up classic street food, including bao buns, smash burgers, dirty fries, freak-shakes and more, all made on site by head chef and owner Jay Oates.

Jay is an experienced chef with 10 years experience, three of those as a head chef.

Co-owner Rebecca Taylor-Oats will be lending a hand and may be a familiar face, as she works at Preston Markets family run fruit and veg stall, Fresh and Fruity, and has done for over 10 years.

Tipsy Chef will be located in the former unit of Pickles of Preston, opposite Redman’s.

Councillor Robert Boswell, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community safety at Preston City Council said: “It is great to welcome new venture, Tipsy Chef to the Market Hall.

“Preston Markets have witnessed the start of many successful enterprises over the years, I’m sure that Tipsy Chef will flourish, just as other businesses have.

“The menu sounds delicious and is something totally new for the markets. I’m certain it will be very popular with customers.

As always I encourage the people of Preston to continue to support these local businesses and enjoy what Preston Markets and its traders have to offer.”

“I will be sourcing most of my ingredients from my neighbouring market traders, fresh every single morning. We will also be using bio-degradable takeaway containers where possible.

“An alcohol license has been applied for, we intend to add lager, IPA, wine and cocktails to our menu.
