Near railway station. large early opening pub, large open plan room with central bar and drystone fireplace. The beams are painted grey which has a weird way of making them look more like concrete! Sports TV., 6 real ales of good quality

I have to say for a nearby station pub, this one was better than I had anticipated. The interior was traditional and carpeted throughout. There was also lots of pictures and bric a brac around the walls to give the pub a homely sort of feel to it. Regarding the ceiling beams, it was quite odd to see them painted in a very light grey compared to the traditional black, but it did add more of a brighter appearance for such a low ceiling throughout the pub.
The customers on our visit all looked very respectable, so the usual station pub clientele must have gone to drink elsewhere. Seven handpumps on our visit, with good service from a well staffed bar. I also noticed that their range of cobs were flying off the shelf. Beer wise we went for the Mad Crafty Brewer Nipa, which was in excellent condition.

one tough customer below in my opinion. it's certainly far better than the Station Hotel and Beer House round the corner and also better than most in Preston. it's pleasant, friendly, comfortable and cheap with a good range of beer. beer garden looks out at a car park and a garage, life doesn't get any better.
