The Dog and Partridge has closed

An iconic Friargate pub has closed its doors and is looking for someone new to takeover.


The Dog and Partridge had its last night serving on New Year’s Eve.

And readers have responded to the news that Preston will lose one of its most recognisable boozers.

A spokesperson for the Dog and Partridge pub said:

“Sunday 31 December will be our last night and we will not be reopening after then.

“We are looking for someone else to step in and take over.

“We are shutting because recently the pub hasn’t been making any money, and so we have to close.”

The responses are available below:

A once great pub with an ace jukebox, friendly staff and clientele and the best pint of Landlord in Preston.

Many a happy and safe friendly night in there as well as the New Brit around the corner. Beer was good, prices were fair. Never ate in there. Toilets had a certain perfume about them but that never stopped a friendly loyal clientele going in.

I remember going in this pub as a teenager. One of the pubs that us punks were welcomed into. So sad.

Damn shame, had some great times in that pub, all the old pubs with character are fading away into these bright trendy soulless bars.

Hardly a surprise, Friargate is on its arse. A simple micro pub would work, something similar to the Golden Tap in Leyland.

I am very sad about this. I have so many good memories.
