Chefs from a popular Mediterranean restaurant have opened up a new establishment in Darwen.

Darwen Bar and Grill, on The Green, invite their customers to 'indulge in a selection of traditional Mediterranean dishes prepared with authentic recipes and premium ingredients'.

The new restaurant is run by the same chefs who worked on Essence, another Mediterranean restaurant and bar in Darwen that closed permanently earlier this year, at the same site.

Posting on Facebook, a spokesperson said: "Darwen's newest place to eat has opened up.

"For everyone that loved Essence, come down to see our menu. We prioritise quality ingredients and exceptional culinary techniques to create dishes that elevate the Mediterranean dining experience.

"We have a variety of dishes from beautiful Mediterranean cuisine to hearty meals such as our delicious pies and fish and chips.

"At Darwen Bar and Grill, we believe in creating a welcoming atmosphere where every guest feels valued and at home.

"Same chefs and the same love put into our food. We can't wait to see you all!"
