|Lots of good things including encouragement of the arts (Vic Godard & the Subway Sect and The Monochrome Set are upcoming) and a terrific range of beers are on rotation while the conservatory area was toasty on a bitter March day.|
The food was nice too - bream with a seafood risotto was nicely concocted but a problem is the shambolic service - one party of 8 including kids turned up and had to wait 20 minutes to be seated despite having booked while general chaos ensued all around. Wallpaperish music is another disappointment but only a few tweaks are needed to make this a real winner.

|Well worth making the effort to visit this pub even though its a little off the beaten track. Try the strawberry beer. It's magic! |

|Return visit on a Sat lunchtime impressed me even more. A gorgeous Marble house beer and an excellent keg out of the BrewDog school. Very busy by 1pm but friendly staff and fantastic food - in my top 10, just as Preston now is for a pub crawl.|

|Great pub catering for all sorts of people - families, couples, real alers, wine buffs...and so on. Good selection of ales in good condition, large selection of Belgium beers in bottles. Beer fest coming up at the end of Sep 27th-29th.|

|Without doubt the best pub in Preston & if not the North West. A bit of a trek, but the walk through Avenham Park makes it all worth while. (15mins from railway station)|
Situated on the River Ribble & adjacent the railway viaduct it's peaceful location is ideal & far enough away from the City centre to deter the "Sat night loonies" That said, don't be fooled, this pub is very popular & gets packed at weekends.
Usually there are between 5 - 7 micro beers on tap, these vary widely, although beers from Pictish (Rochdale) & Marble (Manchester) feature regularly, the house brew (Continental) is excellent.
The pub is deceptively large & features a comfortable lounge bar, main bar, restaurant area, conservatory,a large outside patio, outside benches & grassed area. There is also a large rear function room which is home to the very popular annual beer festival. A good selection of food & beers are always available.
This is a great pub & well worth a visit, the only downside? There never seems to be enough staff at busy periods, the bar can get very crowed & trying to get served can be a nightmare. Recommended - But visit off peak!
