MAKING A STATEMENT
The team behind the highly commended Provenance
Food Hall and Restaurant have expanded their business into the former Natwest bank next door to open the appropriately named Statement on Market Street in Westhoughton.
Having won several food awards and having been repeatedly listed in the official Good Food Guide, brothers Brian and Rob Tinniswood along with Brian’s wife Karen have transformed the derelict bank site into a modern and spacious restaurant. Statement has retained many of the bank’s original features including a vault which has become a private dining space. Rob Tinniswood said: ‘We are very pleased to bring our Statement concept to the people of Westhoughton and to be able to offer our locally sourced produce to a larger audience. ‘As a family, we’ve owned the Provenance building since 1952 when our grandparents ran it as a toy shop, so we are proud to be adding to the family’s portfolio.’
