Mark O’Rourke commenting on the competition said, “I wanted to give people a chance to get involved in naming the restaurant because it’s in a much-admired, historic building and it deserves a name that means something to the people of Lancashire.  It is good to see new eateries popping up again in the Miller Arcade and we’re thrilled to be part of this stylish dining location.”

Mark continued, “The new restaurant will be a casual British restaurant, serving locally sourced, seasonal produce, and the menu will change often to reflect this. There will also be a modern cocktail list and wine pairing options – something for everyone to enjoy.”

He added, “I’m really looking forward to seeing all the creative suggestions that people send in and to welcoming the winner as our special guest, over the next year.”

The name of the new restaurant will be announced on Tuesday 19th April with the launch of the venue happening in May.
