A POPULAR Westhoughton food hall and restaurant has been featured in the Good Food Guide 2017 after just a year of trading.

The Good Food Guide is the UK's best selling restaurant guide and features the best restaurants throughout the country.

Award-winning chef Lewis Gallagher has been working hard to ensure Provenance is a success.

He has won Lancashire Young Chef of the Year twice and creates a range of innovative dishes — using top quality produce.

Provenance was opened in Market Street, Westhoughton by Karen, Brian and Rob Tinniswood.

Brian and Rob's grandparents opened the famous Tinniswoods toy and nursery store in the same premises in the 1950s and the brothers decided to open their restaurant and food hall when the building came back on the market.

Self confessed "foodie" Brian said he was "delighted" with the way Provenance had taken off.

As the name suggests the food served in the restaurant can have its provenance tracked.

The impressive food hall on the ground floor features home made bread and pastries, a butchers, greengrocers and delicatessen.

Afternoon teas at Provenance are made with home made produce.

Brian is particularly proud of the fact the business is run in the same premises that have been in his family for so long.

"It is great to be here and running another family concern. We felt Westhoughton was the place to open a restaurant like this," he said.
