Posted: 22 December 2021

View of Miller Arcade and buildings on Harris Street, Preston.

Preston's city centre has seen an exciting range of new and unique places to eat, drink, and shop open in late last year. On top of these fantastic venues, there are two new confirmed venues opening later in 2022. Check out what's new to the city and don't forget to pay them a visit and check them off your list!

With restaurants in London, Liverpool, Manchester, and Edinburgh, Mowgli has a large number of well-established venues - and for a good reason. The restaurant is renowned for its focus on Indian street food and home cooking. You will find unique dishes, unlike any in the city on the menu, as well as tasty dedicated vegan, gluten-free, kids, and sharing menus. 

Mowgli restaurants are also dog-friendly. You can look forward to Preston's very own branch opening in the Spring/Summer time of 2022, inside the Miller Arcade.

Early 2022 will see Fino Tapas move from their temporary location in the Miller Arcade back to Guildhall Street. Taking Fino Tapas' place will be a brand new English brasserie with a gastro-pub inspired menu. The brasserie will focus on using seasonal and locally-sourced produce.

Keep your eyes peeled for the grand opening. 

Hopwoods Tap House
