A family-run pub is to be sold off on the outskirts of Preston.


Ye Horns Inn in Goosnargh has been run by the Woods family since 1952 and the pub dates back to the late 18th century.

Now six months after going on the market the family have chosen to knock £100,000 off the asking price in the hope of finding a bidder.

The pub in Horns Lane also includes a micro-brewery producing six ales including Goosnargh Gold, Goosnargh Truckle, Bit O’Blonde along with a red and pale ale.

Priced at £595,000 the landlords say they want to move on to spend more time with their ever-expanding family.

Mark and Denise Woods said: “Good food and service has always been paramount to our business. Over our time at the inn we have added the caravan site, hotel rooms in the barn at the rear of the property and latterly the micro-brewery.

“However we feel after 30 years under our guidance it is time to move on and free up some time to enjoy our ever-extending family, (whom no longer live in Lancashire) with our first grandchild due in October this year.”

The pub has featured in the 2017 Good Pub Guide as well as the Good Beer Guide. In 2014 it was voted the Lancashire Pub of the Year.

Leisure property specialists Fleurets have placed the pub on the market since late 2016.

Ian Taylor from the firm said: “This hostelry is a well-renowned establishment within the local community and would provide a potential owner with multiple additional income streams from six en suite letting rooms, a 2.45 acre caravan and camping site, whilst the premises has also been granted planning permission to extend the restaurant towards the patio area.

“Furthermore, the freehold price includes a five barrel micro-brewery plant and the Goosnargh Brewing Company, which currently brews three times fortnightly.”
