    New pub for Preston?

    When we spoke to the guy he was all for aiming the cask at older customers so bitters, ambers, milds etc rather than more modern styles and really keen on getting flat ciders boxes in and pulling them through a cask pump. If enough go in and push for more/different cask he may listen but after...

    New pub for Preston?

    Elsewhere Plug & Taps WILL reopen on 21st June despite the goalposts being moved. The week coincides with the Plug's third birthday so there will be some very special beers on the bar despite the reduced capacity. In Higher Walton the Taps & Wine Bar has finally got planning permission from...

    Made our first visits to The Tap End at the weekend. Became apparent both owner and the bar manager are very green when it comes to free of tie premises and being able to but whatever they like. Mentioned a few local breweries and the guy behind the bar gladly took note. Cask was a bit generic...

    Feel a bit sorry for the Tulketh Tap owners as they seem to attract bad press left, right and centre. Whilst they were totally blame for not enforcing covid regulations both inter and post lockdowns the peeing in the alleyway thing seems to have nothing to do with them, just locals putting 2 and...

    New pub for Preston?

    The Plungington Hotel reopens on Friday under the management of a couple from Stockport who seemed to trade as 'Winwick Taverns' so it'll be one, albeit small, pubco running it for another (Admiral Taverns). Get the feeling it will become more like the nearby Brook Tavern rather than what the...

    We did a MSS/Plau session for my parent's birthdays. Was a fantastic evening, two fab places to eat, drink and socialise with more to come over the next couple of years.

    Trams in Preston (again!)

    Well this is probably the most 'progress' Trampower have made in 12 years. https://www.thebusinessdesk.com/northwest/news/2079921-preston-trampower-rescues-listed-building-as-guild-line-plans-progress?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Drove past on Sunday to see work is getting on between...

    Favourite Preston nightclub

    It shut down as Rift before lockdown but almost the next day it was announced as reopening as Replay posy refurb. Nothing really happened before March last year but I believe they planned to open in summer then Lockdown II arrived so it finally appeared on 17th May.

    That's great news, Lit Kitchen food is amazing so glad they've got a perm place to combine with drinks and music. Never made it to Nostalgia who I think were permanently closed by PCC for completely ignoring lockdown back in March 2020.

    New pub for Preston?

    Roper Hall is back and in full swing for sporting events inside and out with a max of six per table. Ale wise it has returned to the generic 'supermarket' range typical of Stonehouse Pubs (Punk IPA, Neck Oil, Shipyard Pale, Wainwright etc) as Emma the manager before covid who had a keen interest...

    Do we want the Lashers promoted?

    No. No. No. Given the bounce they had last time they came to this division, the 2 out of 3 defeats at Deepdale and their eventual promotion i want them as far away as possible. Especially as there is a good chance we'll be as shit next season as we've been this one.

    I was speaking to the guy from Beer Box last week. The owner seems to have been content for the downstairs to be empty for a good 10/15 years with just an income from the flat above. Very odd and thank feck someone is going to use it again.

    Owners of Beer Box in Bamber Bridge are looking for Crowdfunding support to turn the old bank on Adelphi Street into 'Bier Box', a German bierhalle style bar. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/bierboxpreston Not the wurst thing I've ever seen.
