Mister Pickwicks was the last home brew pub in Preston during the 1950s before it closed in the mid-1990s.

It was also known as The Meadow Arms before this, taking its name from Meadow Street, where it stands. It was part of the Vaux pub chain.

Six flats would be created inside the pub each with its own bedroom, bathroom and lounge.

The former pub is within the St Ignatius Conservation Area.
