Decent place. I think nine hand pumps, two of which were off. I had Fernandes Rasputin @ 7.4% ABV while watching Wimbledon. Bar in the middle, pool room to rear. Would return.

Aqualung . left this review about Ale Emporium

This is an odd place, it's set in the heart of the University area of Preston and doesn't seem to be an original pub but some sort of building that has had a bar and some furniture placed in it. Having said that it's more than comfortable enough with a mix of stools, tables, chairs and sofas. As noted below it's a single room with the bar in front as you enter. Behind the bar I could hear the unmistakeable sounds of a Pool Table.
The bar has 10 hand pumps And I managed to note two from Rat, Dukeries, Bowland, Lancaster, B&T, Castles and Dancing Duck. I went for the Dukeries Lime Tree Porter (£2.90) and Rat Black Death (£3.20) which were both excellent. This is my sort of pub really with a large range of interesting beers from assorted microbreweries and no dull national brands wasting space.
I would happily return here.

A single roomed pub serving a wide selection of cask ales. A bit dark inside but hey, with a decent selection on beers so what?
