The Moorbrook


The smashed parlour window at The Moorbrook Inn has been replaced.

In October, the window was smashed by vandals, with management tweeting a picture and branding those responsible a “d*ckhead”.

The window was thought to be 150 years old and was a loss of one of the pubs period features.

Now repaired, the window heavily resembles the original one, with the owners clearly trying to keep the history of the pub alive.

The pub, one of the oldest in Preston, reopened in May 2014 after changing hands and undergoing renovation.

A consortium made up of New Continental owner Jeremy Rowlands, his mother Sue Woods and two managers at the Continental bought the pub.

It has stuck firmly to its real ale roots and won over the drinkers of Preston since then.
