The ‘secret’ garden

A pub on the outskirts of Preston has reopened after a major revamp.


The White Bull in Alston has seen £100,000 spent by Thwaites.

Walls have been knocked down and an original stone fireplace opened back up and restored.

A ‘secret garden’ has also been put in at the front, which the pub says has a Mediterranean feel.

Alex Coward, who took over the tenancy in 202, said: “It’s made exactly the difference I hoped – breathing new life into the pub.

“We’re really pleased with the changes and feedback from customers has been really positive.

“We’ve also used the opportunity to review our dining options and have added a new menu.”

Director of pubs and brewing Andrew Buchanan said: “The White Bull is a fantastic pub with great views and as their recent award showed, it already offers a great customer experience.

“It looked very traditional inside, with a lot of dark wood finishes and we wanted to give it a fresh, new look.

“The work carried out really has transformed the place – but it has retained that great character and warm welcome that has made it so popular since originally opening in the 17 th Century.

“With its new look, we are confident it will remain a firm favourite for the next four centuries.”
