Paul Heathcotes justly deserves to be called one of the most successful chefs of the United Kingdom. While being a chief culinary master of not only one but four restaurants, he still manages to write some books on gastronomic topics, as well. Perhaps lack of time should be blamed that a Michelin star for the Longridge restaurant is already history (although it has travelled to another restaurant, owned by the same chef). However, a tiny village, just 20 minutes drive from Preston, still attracts quite a number of gourmands.
It can safely be said about the Longridge restaurant - if you ever have been there, you will return. A classic style restaurant, with tables clad in white and charming floral decorations, offers its guests a very private atmosphere. Savoring starters in a small and cozy lounge is pretty enjoyable, too. Those, who have ventured into the direction of this village, most likely have done it thanks to the famous Paul Heathcote's bread & butter pudding. A blend of eggs and cream, so airy and light, you will not find anywhere else. And a risotto of young vegetables and summer truffle is just fabulous! Lobster not only with citrus fruit but also hand-rolled macaroni - reminding tiny cannelloni tubes. Saddle of Cumbrian lamb without bones, served with spiced aubergines. Tortellini filled with sea scallops mousse, as well as homemade pasta, ginger and whole scallops... Mmm! These are just a few of Paul Heathcotes masterpieces. Moreover, Heathcotes, the same way as the chef of The London Carriage Works, has specified in his menu bread and origin of particular beef, lamb or pork.
Whatever might be your choice of meal, it is served in the most appropriate dishes and wine can be ordered by the glass, too. Every detail seems to be thoroughly thought-out. The greatest gourmands can choose an exclusive dining experience at the Chef's Table, seating up to 14 guests. By the way, the cookery classes, held several times a month, take place at the same Chef's Table. While dining in one of the restaurant's halls, you will be able to catch a glimpse of culinary craftsmanship of the cooks in the kitchen.
The Longridge restaurant takes pride in an outstanding wine list. Tasting of such homemade wines as New Zealand Crowded House Sauvignon Blanc and Italian Sangiovese from Ancorra are almost a must!
