    Should be more of these round Preston.

    The top of the Miller Arcade could be spectacular.

      You could be on to something there.

      • I really like the Tap and Vine in Penwortham, good choice of ale (usually) and a good tight space creates a better atmosphere. I hear the equivalent in Brig and Leyland are also good?

        I also heard that there's a similar project about to open in Longton opposite the Red Lion. These little pubs are the future?

          Do like The Tap & Vine even though the beer is a bit middle of the road for me. Lovely dťcor and atmosphere and is clearly doing very well which, given the beer void that is most of Penwortham, isn't a surprise. Not been to the Bamber Bridge one yet but heard it's as good as the T&V if not better as the landlord has really expanded his range after a slow start. The Golden Tap & Market Ale House in Leyland are both absolutely superb places for beer and get stuff in that nowhere else local seems to have.

          Tonight see's the opening of The Cann Bridge Ale House in Higher Walton which will act as a tap house for Leyland'sl Crankshaft Brewery (but will sell other beers). As Scrubdog mentioned, there is a micro opening in Longton opposite the Red Lion in the form of Wilkins & Pye who open their doors a week today.

          • Cann Bridge Ale House is fantastic. Visited on Friday and really impressed by the cask, keg and bottled beers on offer. Also the compulsory dozen or so bottles of gin on available to.

            Next stop was Brig N Barrel on Station Road. Not such a great range of cask but Wilde Child Brewery's 'Opaque Reality' was on too form.

            Next weekend sees Wilkins & Pye open in Longton and Vinyl Tap, the latest reincarnation of The Variety/Hearts of Oak on Adelphi Street, reopen under the ownership of the team behind the Moorbrook.

            Unfortunately it doesn't look like there will be any cask on offer at W&P which seems a very strange decision but we shall see what the four keg taps have to offer.

Shame, itís a nice pub in a great location but no-one seems to be able to make it work.
              So The Market Tavern is now.... The Market Tap.

              Boasting 6 cask pumps and 16 kegs taps with a 50/50 split of Heineken/free of tie beer (Heineken must be desperate to give so much away) the guys from Wings & Beer are stating a complete refurb is pending along with a fairly slow transition from what it is now to a bar serving a mixture of high end craft ale and more mainstream beer from Heineken. Food and cocktails would be the final addition once the facilities are installed.

              Can't argue if that's how it ends up being!

              • Yeah saw that on social media. Fair play to them if they do it. Itíll be a welcome addition to the current crawl, involving MB, Vinyl Tap, Orchard and Plug and Taps. Happy days!

                • Two launches over the weekend.

                  Micropub Wilkins & Pye in Longton was meet with mixed reviews as whilst the place looks the part the beer offerings aren't great from a place that has 'craft' written all over it. The two cask beers for example were a rebadged Beer Brothers bitter and Jennings Cumberland whilst Beavertown's Neck Oil was the only option on keg that wasn't a lager. Still early days and hopefully the landlord will listen to the punters about what beer to serve.

                  Yesterday Vinyl Tap opened its doors with a launch party featuring local band The Templebys. Six cask pumps serving the likes of Wild Weather, Arbor, Blackjack and Sirencraft with a Kernel IPA on keg amongst the tied Henienken products. Cloudwater, Shindigger and Atom cans in the fridge. Really great place with a huge selection of Vinyl records for you to choose whilst downing a pint or two or whilst enjoying breakfast and a coffee.

                  • Was in Vinyl Tap on Saturday night, it was mobbed. Fair put me in mind of the early 80s in the Moonraker, with its muso vibe (yes Iím that old), with standing room only and a few familiar faces from bands from that time in attendance. Proper nostalgia rush! Place looks nicely done but couldnít really see much for all the folk in there.

                        I like the name Vinyl Tap - very 1960's

                        • That Ballers is looking pretty smart.

                          https://www.facebook.com/ballerspres...type=3&theater

                          It's not the Macs bell ends, it's the guys who own Switch (Squires) and took over Applejax in Chorley.

                          Not big on the American themed shite, but might be decent to watch footy, competition for Wings & Beer.

                              It can't be any worse than the previous 2/3 incumbents! Have to say I'm a fan of Wings & Beer with their very decent food and ale though I've never been to watch a sporting event. Hope this new place doesn't lower their trade too much.

                              Elsewhere tonight see's the opening of Beer Box, Bamber Bridge's second micropub. Six cask pumps on the preview pics but not sure what else to expect.

                              • Increasingly decent little crawl going on in Brig now. I could start at Hob Inn, then Brig & Barrel, Withy Arms, Beer Box and finish off in Walton Arms (possibly - bit hit & miss in my experience) before heading back to Walton-le-Dale.

                                Anyone with knowledge of Brig will notice there are a number of places I missed out in that list - that was not a mistake.

                                Now if we could just muster a promotion and then have a subsequent coffin procession to enjoy these establishments
