20 Priestgate, Peterborough, PE1 1JA
Local lad Lee Clarke spent two decades working in some of the country’s top restaurants before opening Prévost two years ago. Set in Peterborough’s historic Priestgate, the chic, spacious dining room offers fine dining without the formality and has an open kitchen where diners can watch the magic happen. Clarke’s innovative style and flavour combinations continue to surprise. The menus feature the finest seasonal produce sourced from local suppliers and Lee’s own garden, and there are different menus to choose from. The three-course set lunch menu offers fantastic value for money, and a five-course option and impressive nine-course tasting menu are also available. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for, with alternative options across all menus, meaning vegans and meat-eaters alike can dine together without having to compromise. From the spectacularly colourful wild garlic and potato soup to the roast Norfolk quail with accompanying quail Scotch egg, every course is well executed and bursting with flavour. Desserts are imaginative and beautifully presented: think gin, ginger and Yorkshire rhubarb soufflé, and milk chocolate and praline custard with pear and vanilla. There’s also a welcoming bar boasting an extensive and ever-evolving wine list, local artisan ale and imaginative twists on classic cocktails.
