A gin bar which is being created in Friargate won’t open until 2017 – because it’s due to become larger.

Plau craft gin and beer bar is being restored on the site of the old Plough Inn which dates back to Victorian times.

Its owners say during the renovation work they have uncovered more space and want to expand their offering.

Co-owner Rebecca Scott said: “The venue is going to be larger than first envisioned and also what we will offer has been enhanced.

“It will now be over four floors, full of beautiful and unique spaces.

“It’s been a long time coming and we are very excited to share with Preston what we’ve been working on.”

Ms Scott has applied for amended planning permission for the building, and they want to have more food on offer.

She said: “We’re going to include an adventurous Victorian inspired food menu.

“In the Victoria era most foods were kept by smoking, pickling or kept in cool basements or suspended in the well.

“We’ll be looking to serve sharing plates, stews, broths and dry cured meats with our own pickles and jams.

“It is this element of pickles, jams and seasonal products that will be our ethos for both food and drink, so something quite unique and special to reflect the building itself.”
