Plug & Taps

A brand new real ale bar could be set to open its doors in Preston City Centre.

Plug & Taps is the new establishment that has been proposed to Preston City Council to replace a former beauty salon.

Located at 32 Lune Street, the bar has been put forward by the owners of The Market Ale House, which opened in 2015.

Adam Godwin, the applicant, said: “We have been running The Market Ale House and we are a family run, independent micro pub in Leyland.


“We stock a range of cask ales, keg beers, bottles and cans, real ciders, gins, rums and other spirits.

“We hope that with the help of other pubs and bars already selling craft beer, The Guild Ale House, The Moorbrook, The Continental and others, plus the introduction of some other new places that are due to open we can create a bit of a beer and drink scene in the city.

“There seems to be a bit of a boom in the city with independent restaurants and coffee shops opening up.

“With this we are hoping we can draw people into the city instead of maybe heading out to Manchester or Liverpool.

“I was walking around the new Market on recently and there was a real buzz about the place.”

Plug & Taps will have 4-5 cask beer lines, 10-12 Keg lines and a permanent Pilsner on from the Outstanding Brewing Company.

It will also have a Rivington Brewing Co pump which will rotate their beers, with at least one cider available on tap.

There will be a range of both bottled and canned beers available to drink in or takeaway, with the potential of beer to take out in a container called.

In the way of spirits we will be stocking high end gins, rums, vodka, whisky.

The proposal for the opening of Plug Plot Riots of 1842 is still waiting approval by Preston City Council‘s planning committee.

Adam continued: “We are just waiting for the planning to be approved which could take about six weeks.

“Hopefully it shouldn’t take too long once we are in!”

Full details of the plans can be found on the Council’s website.
