    Rich from the Moorbrook is taking over the Hearts of Oak, opening in September. Leasing from the pubco but has a bit of freedom on beer choice. Expect a rename/rebrand, premises improvement and food offering, in addition to good beer. Nice little crawl in the offing come September- Orchard, Market Tavern, Plug and Taps, Plau, whatever HoO becomes then up to the MB. [emoji4]

    Hope it takes off, these vinyl bars are popping up all over, hopefully its a hit with the student hipsters.

    Signs up for Hello Friargate, where that 'Scene' skater shop used to be.

    Sounds like a cafe bar sort of thing.

    Time will tell.
    Not my scene at all this place, might feel more cosy on a winters night but when i walked in it had little atmosphere. Tap and Vine has been furbished far better with re claimed timber and stone fire place. Hope it does well though considering the robbing bastards across the road did not pay their tradesmen.

    Can't beat a good pint or two close to where an ale is brewed.

    Unfortunately Jennings is owned by Marston's and ask such a lot of their beers are brewed at other Marston's sites all over the country not using pure, crystal clear Lake District water. If you change the water you change the beer and Marston's are also notorious for supplying 'fast cask' beers which have chemicals introduced into the barrels so they don't have settle and can be used straight away.

    A pub that had been seeing a big revival, The Railway at Euxton, is being closed down by the Brewery. the land being sold off, Id guess for houses.

    Ok, all of these names are springing up everywhere and as I am out in town tomorrow with the lass, be nice to know where to go.

    Could one of the younger more talented members of the forum print a map of Preston with the city centre pubs / bars on it? Would be a massive help for future ventures into areas I rarely go to (I am a Friargate boy) but would use more if I knew where they actually were.

    Many thanks.

    Im neither young nor talented but I'm also a Friargate lad and don't like the Church Street end because it is more like Magaluf these days but last time I did venture up there we went in Hogarths which seemed pretty good, 12 tellers which was just too busy, Hartleys which was OK and the Vic and Station, which stunk of farts and B.O.
    I used to go in the Wellington and the Exchange a lot in my younger days as it was studenty/gothy but have no idea what kind of pub it is now.
    Not sure this helps but have a good night with the missus.
