DAY ON A PLATE

Cheshire Life - - 24 Hours In… Prestbury -

There are towns three times the size of Prest­bury that fail to of­fer the qual­ity and di­ver­sity of food avail­able in this little culi­nary cor­ner. So let’s start at the be­gin­ning – break­fast. Henry’s Café in The Old Post Of­fice of­fers per­fect day­time fare from full English break­fasts to just-out-of-the-oven scones alongside good cof­fee and healthy juices. The newly opened Lana Café just down the road is a nice al­ter­na­tive to pop to for a lunchtime sarnie or light bite. For qual­ity pub fare, day or night, the Legh Arms has long been the place to go and its re­cent ren­o­va­tion has breathed new life into this old favourite.

Its stun­ning dé­cor com­plete with rus­tic beamed walls, a new bar and re­dis­cov­ered par­quet floor­ing pro­vides the per­fect set­ting for clas­sic Bri­tish dishes, ex­e­cuted to a higher stan­dard than your av­er­age pub. The Coast with its beau­ti­ful Amalfi-in­spired in­te­rior of­fers re­fined Ital­ian op­tions and a lovely wine list (if you can’t make it for din­ner its one-course Pros­ecco lunch is a win­ner).

Other din­ner op­tions in­clude

The Bridge – bistro-style dishes and steaks are the or­der of the day – as well as Tif­fin Kitchen for de­li­cious, au­then­tic South In­dian cui­sine. Fi­nally if you’re a gin fan, stop off at new in­ti­mate little gin palace, The Fox­hole.

It also serves craft ales and fine wines but its im­pres­sive ar­ray of mother’s ruin is the star of the show. A small and dan­ger­ously wel­com­ing bar, it’s the kind of place evenings dis­ap­pear into. Zippy, its res­i­dent corgi, may or may not be there too.
