A pub on the outskirts of Preston is being re-opened in late November after a major revamp.

What was The Boatyard in Riley Green is having £1 million spent on it to become Grill and Grain at the Boatyard.

A large wood-fired grill is being installed in the restaurant for a taste of Americana.

The grill has been specially imported from America and Thwaites have also set up a microbrewery on site.

Director of brewing and pub operations Andrew Buchanan said: “We’ve travelled far and wide in our quest to find the best in grilled food, testing different cooking fuels and cooking methods. What we found is nothing can replicate the flavours of open fire cooking.

“We’ve gone to great lengths to bring that to Grill & Grain at The Boatyard, importing our wood-fired grill and smokers from America to recreate the flavour sensations we want. It will not only help us cook delicious food but it will add an element of theatre to the dining experience.

“It’s a really exciting development for Thwaites and we have invested substantially in transforming the pub. The whole pub is being refurbished – completely overhauling the restaurant, doubling the size of the outdoor seating area as well as refurbishing the bedrooms.

“The micro-brewery is a great addition for us as we will be able to use our brewing experience from Daniel Thwaites that we have built up over nearly 210 years and bring it directly to Grill & Grain. It’s going to be great to see this develop as we are really looking forward to opening later this month.”
