Marco Pierre White is to open a Mr White’s English Chophouse at the Mercure Preston Samlesbury Hotel. The restaurant will open for business towards the end of June.
The restauranteur launched the first Mr White’s English Chophouse in 2018.
Marco 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.”
The opening of the new restaurant follows a deal between owner Kim Eivind Krohn of KRO Hospitality and Black And White Hospitality. It is the second Marco Pierre White venue KRO will operate, following a Mr White’s English Chophouse in the Velvet Hotel in Manchester.
Mr 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.”
