Yes after nearly 25 years of owning JJ's Restaurant I have finaly hung up my

tea towel and intend to live out my days inspecting golf courses and testing beer.


I have sold the site to a great husband and wife team, Stephen & Joanne Hilderbrandt,

who are opening towards the end of October an exciting new venture to be called

"Bistro 341" . 

Stephen was the original chef when we first opened JJ's for business in Farnworth in 1991,

but alas he was too good for me to hang on to, he went on to head up the kitchens of

some of the top Manchester city centre restaurants, winning many prestigous awards.


His long suffering wife Joanne is well experiencd in the restaurant business, fronting

and hosting busy Manchester restaurants as Restaurant Manager.


I am sure you will join with me in wishing them both success, and I only hope they meet as

many lovely people as I have in the last 25 years, customers who have with the passing of time

become good friends, thankyou to you all, you know who you are.


I would love to hear from you, good or bad! so i have put my contact details accross the bottom.


Good luck, kind regards, Andy Thomas
