After a decent walk from the station I got to this pub which overlooks the railway bridge and the River Ribble. Lots of different areas to sit including a conservatory and beer garden. 9 beers and ciders on on 6 visible handpulls. A good pub despite it being a bit of an arse to get to.

10-15 mins walk from town but a pleasant enough stroll through a more upmarket area of Preston. The pub lies adjacent to the railway viaduct over the river Ribble. A large place that has been given an upmarket sheen and is pitched at the Preston pashmina pudding brigade, though they still happily serve topers and didn’t bat an eyelid when 20 of us piled in en masse. Safe and upmarket decor but with a touch of class; light and airy interior with the highlights being the jumbo rear conservatory and lovely garden with large pink blossom trees in full flower. Live music advertised, which I wasn’t expecting. GBG ’22 listed and there were seven cask on over nine pumps plus a cider, which worried me a bit given the location, however my Vocation Bread & Butter was in great shape (NBSS 4) served-up by a friendly barman. I was rather taken with this place, they seemed to know exactly what their aim was without losing the air of inclusiveness. The walk back into town through Avenham Park is also rather nice. 8.5

As mentioned a bit of a trek from the main town, but a pleasant one. The pub itself comes across as a bit foodie but this is more than made up for with a pretty good beer range. Wort a look for the beers but there is little else that would attract me back.
