Late afternoon busy around the bar so we claimed a couple of corner perch seats at the far end of the pub. A realxed and enjoyable visit prior to checking in to the nearby Premier Inn.

Intended as a quick look at this new bar at the start of an evening Preston city centre pubcrawl, I liked it here so much that I ventured no further.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fell - Milk Stout5.20ExcellentBlack. Milky sweet and somewhat roasty.
Rivington - Brut IPA6.80ExcellentCloudy gold and bone dry. Probably the best Brut beer I’ve tried so far.
Fell - Ratio5.20ExcellentFrom some kind of keg. Juicy, hazy gold. Full of Mosaic hops.
Unity - Bokor Hill4.40ExcellentFrom some kind of keg. Hazy gold. A soured beer with flavourings of lime, pepper and basil.

The pub is found in Preston, Lancashire, PR1 2NN.

A fine little town centre bar in Lune Street (I don’t think it calls itself a micropub) which opened in June 2018 in a premises most recently used as a beauty salon. There is limited seating availability in the small bar, plus there is a function room upstairs. There are four handpumps on the bar, a line of ten keg taps and a fridge full of bottles and cans.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 9 different beers and tried 6 of them.
