The interior has been modernised and opened out. Large number of TV screens showing multiple (often sports) channels. A great place to go to watch the dinner time game before the walk to Deepdale

The two front rooms, with real log fires are adorned with Robinson's memorabilia and photos of old Preston; the famous "hall of mirrors" seating area is to the rear.

To quote a Nottingham Forest fan this is "a proper pub" serving quality real ales
A good walk to the ground (taxis are available) but well worth a visit

Opposite the railway station, and on bus routes into the city, this is a popular pub that can get busy at weekends. A number of TVs show sports events and this is a rare city centre pub for darts enthusiasts. To the rear is an outdoor decked smoking area and a car park that is only available on Sunday and in the evenings.
Seven hand pumps offer a good range of beers in the area, with local microbreweries usually represented. Real ale carry outs are available, as are third-of-a-pint taster paddles.
Accepts CAMRA Wetherspoon's vouchers.

The latest addition to the real ale scene in Preston, The high ceilings help give this larger than usual micropub an airy feel and the light coloured woodwork and decor also help here. The main room comprises the bar itself with high and low level seating at tables and a 'drinkers' shelf' along the right hand wall. There is a small lounge tucked away to the rear of the bar with comfortable seating and a steep staircase leads to the upper floor lounge area.
There are seven handpumps dispensing changing guest ales. Initially these are likely to come from local breweries, but the intention is to stock a wide range of ales from micro breweries from far and wide. There are at least two ciders served from boxes or flagons behind the bar and a range of continental beers in keg and bottle form. Some wines are also on offer.
No jukebox, no music, no TV.
Recently opened is the "yard of ale" sun terrace in the back yard, including smoking zone.
