Aqualung . left this review about The Old Vic

This pub immediately opposite Preston Station is in the 2017 GBG. As mentioned below it has been knocked right through to make an open plan room surrounding an almost island bar with darts and pool at the rear. It's an old building with beams on the ceiling and these have been painted light grey which looked ridiculous. There was a football match showing with the sound off that nobody seemed to be watching and for a while there was a female group at the bar who could out-cackle the witches in Shakespeare's Scottish Play all day long.
There were only four beers on from the two sets of hand pumps, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, Lytham Summer Ale and Wells / Marstons Directors and Bombardier. I found this disappointing for a GBG listed pub but went for the Lytham beer (£2.90) followed by a second after a deluge of rain started outside.
Overall I was disappointed with this one with the TV screens and average beer choice. I would be prepared to give it another go.

Decent enough pub with a fair selection of ales. One largish room with the bar to the centre.

A nice, what looks like recently refurbished, pub at the top of Preston Station entrance. Open plan with distinct areas set around the central bar to sit. A decent selection of real ales is available. Better than the Station Hotel over the road.
