A vintage sign has been taken from the wall of a Preston pub.


The Moorbrook team in North Road have posted an appeal calling for the ‘beerseller’ sign to be returned.

The sign, a gift from the former landlord of the Old Dog and Partridge, went missing overnight on Monday 21 August.

General manager Richard Fisher-Godwin said: “This sign was up on the wall in the Moorbrook, someone has decided to take it.

“This was a gift from one of Preston’s longest standing pub landlords Ronnie from the Old Dog and Partridge.

“If anyone know who has this or can shed any light on its disappearance this would be greatly appreciated.

“We would just really like it back so if you took it when you were drunk and woke up next day feeling guilty then feel free to just post it back to us anonymously.”
