Prest­bury busi­nesses shake up

Macclesfield Express - - GROSVENOR CENTRE ROW -

CHANGES are afoot on the food and drink scene in Prest­bury.

Tra­di­tional tea room The Choco­late Box, run by sis­ters Kate Nut­tall and An­gela O’Leary, is up for sale due to co-owner Kate’s ill-health.

And Grade II-listed build­ing the White House, for­mer home of In­dian restau­rant the Saf­fron Room, is set to trans­form into Ital­ian restau­rant ‘Coast’, due to open this month.

But the owner of Ital­ian restau­rant Ro­mu­lus de­nied ru­mours that it will close.

Salvatore Sat­toruso said: “We’re not clos­ing, that’s ab­so­lutely un­true. We’d like more sup­port from lo­cal peo­ple though.”

Prest­bury Thai Restau­rant was also ru­moured to be clos­ing but owner Paul Collins said there are no plans to close.

He added: “We have been in Prest­bury for 12 years and have no­ticed many changes over the years, most for the bet­ter. “Prest­bury is now a desti­na­tion choice for peo­ple who like good food.”

Chair­man of Prest­bury Parish Coun­cil Arthur Dicken said the new Coast restau­rant was good news and added: “Busi­ness in the vil­lage was dif­fi­cult af­ter the re­ces­sion but there are def­i­nitely signs of re­cov­ery now.”
