A real and craft ale bar in a grade-II listed building in Preston city centre has opened its doors.


The Guild Ale House, in Lancaster Road, began pouring pints on Friday and has seen an enthusiastic response from beer fans in the city.

Gary Quinn, 37, is the man behind the refurb of the former charity shop.

He said: “We’ve been busy since we opened. There’s been some really nice comments. I’m listening to what people are saying about the beers and we’ll be changing them regularly.

“The crafts we keep on but the pump ales we can rotate a fair bit.”

The downstairs of the building has been refitted by Gary himself and he is planning to work on the upstairs in the coming months.

For a Tuesday night, when Blog Preston popped in, it was fairly busy.

Below is a list of the ales currently on tap.
