Awarded three AA Rosettes - one of the industry's highest accolades - recognising its fine quality cuisine and excellent service, The Longridge is the flagship establishment of Paul Heathcote's successful restaurant group. A smart, easy space set within an attractive 19th-century cottage, this award-winning dining destination in Preston is now looked after by manageress Kath Bell, alongside head chef and Gordon Ramsay scholarship winner Chris Bell, both of whom were at the helm when the restaurant was awarded a Michelin Star. The staff serves signature dishes ranging from Heathcote's famous bread and butter pudding, with poached apricots and clotted cream, to the favourable Longridge Experience Menu, where diners can delight in five classic Heathcote dishes. Muted modern tones and exposed stonework add a rustic touch to the dining room, while the laid-back bar and lounge area includes a private function room that seats 14 people. The stylish, dynamic modern European cuisine gives the menu a robust flavour, with a well-established cooking school for those who feel suitably inspired. As only seven other restaurants in North-West England hold three AA Rosettes, this mark of excellence has positioned Longridge among the top 10% of restaurants recommended by the AA and re-established it as a firm favourite with diners.

Customer reviews for The Longridge Restaurant
((*** 17 July 2011 by Hi-vis monster from Preston
An evening with friends - service was terribly slow, portions were very small, bill was very large and overall we were disappointed - although the food was good. I've dined at The Longridge on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the experience but last night was rather embarassed as it had been my suggestion. I won't be returning for a while!
