Fresh Bread Westhoughton Bolton

Provenance Food Hall & Restaurant - Born out of a Passion for Great Food.

Well back in June 2015 the suspense was finally over and the new shop "Provenance" in Westhoughton was born! Many people had walked past over the previous months wanting to know what we were doing but we wanted to keep it as a surprise. There was even a page on Facebook and some very interesting suggestions of what the shop would become! Who would have thought that the shop that was once Tinniswoods toys would be back in the family after 20 years!

So how did Provenance come about? We are real foodies. We love cooking for family and friends and we care passionately about the quality of our food and where it is from. We therefore prefer to shop at the local butcher, greengrocer and baker but find it difficult after a day in the office, the school run and then numerous kids clubs. We hate the pre-packaged, uninviting, uninspiring food in the supermarket but find it convenient in our busy lives. We miss the personal, old fashioned service that makes shopping pleasurable which is lost in supermarkets. Therefore we decided to do something about it and we decided to open Provenance!

We wanted to give the local community a practical alternative to the supermarket which was convenient but provided good quality, fresh produce at reasonable prices. So we combined a butchers (originally Beazleys), a bakers and (not a candle stick makers), but a greengrocers and deli, all under one roof! (Oh and a tearooms, because we love cake and meeting up with friends!) We wanted to give you speciality goods alongside staples so we personally tasted every product that we stock. It was a hard job but someone had to do it! We wanted to provide you with fantastic service, so we chose friendly, smiley, knowledgeable staff to make you happy and give you a great shopping experience. After all, we are a family company. We also wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to access amazing local food so although we would love you to visit us, we are looking in to an online system so we will have your shopping ready for when you collect it. We simply created a food hall where we would love to shop and hope you will too!
