They state: “Tipped to become Preston’s number one live music venue, this high street value pub enjoys a superb central position and has the potential to pull in students and coffee-seeking shoppers during the day as well as lovers of cocktails, cask ale and live music in the evenings and at weekends.

“We’re looking for a dynamic operator to take on this vibrant pub and music venue. As well as being personable and outgoing, you must be able to manage a multifaceted business spanning live music, food and regular daytime trade.”
