Situated just off the main Blackpool Road, linking Preston to Blackpool, this provides the pub with additional footfall of an abundance of passing traffic daily, not only on foot, but by car and public transport.

There is also a good sized beer garden located to the rear of the pub providing additional seating for drinkers and diners in the sunnier months.

There has been a food offer here in the past, however is no longer moving forward and this is something that we would be looking for the next operator to re-introduce. The pub has regular teams visiting and utilising the games room to the rear of the pub. Entertainment has also proven popular throughout the week and weekend evenings.
