  • Sounds decent that, the pie & ale places in Northern Quarter always do well.

      • Got to laugh at "Otters Pocket"!!!

        So, Plau opening very soon and The Northern Way (formerly O'Neills) opening as of this Saturday (albeit to special guests), seems a good reason for venturing into that part of town again.

        For me the current route is: Ferret and/or Mad Hatters, occasionally nip across to the Vinyl Tap and end up in D& P. Other routes are: Guild Ale House, German bar ont market and into the Black Horse, also ending up in D&P.

        Stay in Penwortham which is now quite decent. Things are on the up!.

        • Oh and another thing, some of my Fulwood mates kicking off about the Summers being raized to the ground. The irony is that they never went in the place. 'Use it or lose it'.

          • The Plau have just announced that they will be opening on 16th November! I'll be haunting the gin bar :-)

            • Attended the opening of The Northern Way on Saturday. Impressed by the décor, a vast VAST improvement on O'Neill's with plenty of comfy seating and HD screens. The roof terrace is fab as well with an encased screen and wooden decking/roofing/seating. Nicely lit and gives a bit of a 'city' feel with the surrounding apartment blocks.

              Beer wise the choice isn't great for the cask/craft drinker with Dizzy Blonde, Rev James, Hobgoblin & Bombardier on cask and Hobgoblin IPA on keg with a few Brooklyn Brewery bottles in the fridge. Think I saw one pint of cask pulled all night which given the line-up and that the place doesn't seem to be an older gents hang out isn't a surprise. We had free drinks vouchers so stuck with getting our money's worth on Gin & cocktails which varied massively in quality depending on who served us although later we found out 80% of the staff are completely new to bar work.

              All in all a very decent place similar to Amber Tavern's other Preston venue Hogarths.

                Went in there last night impressed with the refurb could do with a few more like it in Preston. Not bad prices either. We will be going again. Could not believe how big it was inside.

                • Was in there Saturday, unrecognisable from O'Neill's and a good atmosphere/ good prices.

                  Chris Lucketti was even in there enjoying a few. Legend.

                    Have they opened it out since it was O'Neills then? Never liked it before but seems to be getting some good comments so might have to pop in.

                      Moved the bar and its created loads more seating space.

                      • Walked past the Northern Way today... O'Neills has always previously been our "nip out for a beer in work lunch break" pub. Albeit a very rare occurrence. Might have to lift my current no beer at lunch stance and nip in soon,by the comments on here. O'Neills was always a bit too dark and dreary with a crap selection of ales for my liking

                        • "Barcadium" a video games and craft ale bar has opened inside what was Beachcomber on Fox Street. The old cocktail bar (Fox & Grapes pub before that) has been filled full of arcade games and games consoles with cans of craft ale from Tiny Rebel, Beavertown, Cloudwater and Verdant (amongst others) behind the bar.

                          • Big couple of days in the Preston pub scene. Tomorrow night Plug & Tap's have Magic Rock Brewery visiting for a tap takeover. They'll be bringing a mixture of their cask/keg core range mixed with some special seasonal and one-off brews.

                            Then on Friday it's the big one, Plau FINALLY opens its doors. I've had a quick tour and it left me speechless. It will truly be a remarkable place from cellar to attic bar.

                              How big is it inside Sav? I can see it being very very busy this weekend. I might wait a couple of weeks before popping in so I can have a proper look.

                                Bigger than I expected, in fact it's a real Tardis job from the front. However there are a number of places, corridors and staircases especially, that could be a bit of a scrum when the place is busy. I can't overemphasise just how amazing the place is (and that's before any of the beers are revealed) but it might well be worth holding back for a week or so.
