November - A Quick Bite of Lancashire Food

Mike Rawlinson -  Red Cat restaurant Chorley and the Royal Oak at Riley Green.

Our featured foodie for November is Mike Rawlinson - Co owner and head of front of house operations for the highly acclaimed Red Cat restaurant in Chorley and the Royal Oak at Riley Green. Mike is also a talented "Ironman" (hence the picture below) who thinks nothing of cycling over a hundred miles, swimming a couple of miles and then running a marathon. The award winning Red Cat is in both the AA and Michelin guides this year and is also been nominated for Visit Lancashire and Lancashire Life awards again this year.
