Thwaites has placed the Lamb and Packet pub on the market.

The Blackburn-based operation currently runs the pub which stands on the corner of Friargate and the Adelphi roundabout.

Director of pub operations Andrew Buchanan said: “The Lamb and Packet is still open for business but it is for sale. We have had a number of bids, which we are considering before making a decision.”

A history of Preston Pub’s blog lists the first landlord of the Lamb and Packet as Mrs Charnley in 1807.

It was rebuilt in 1876 to its present position when Friargate was widened.
