Doors and windows are once again boarded up at a Preston city centre pub.Advertisement
The Tithebarn pub in the shadow of Preston Bus Station has closed the doors once more.
A listed building, the pub had been leased out by Preston City Council, but it appears its latest owners have handed back the keys.
The pub, in Lord Street, had reopened in Spring 2013 under the management of Town and Country Inns.
Simon Rigby, the owner of Preston Guild Hall, moved to dismiss rumours he had bought the building.
Mr Rigby said: “I have not bought the pub or taken a lease on it.
“I have expressed an interest in it with Preston City Council and when it is offered to the market plan to participate.
“As far as I know it is not currently being marketed.”
Blog Preston has contacted Preston City Council for comment but as yet received no response.
