The Moor Park in Plungington is putting in additional safety measures after a complaint was filed against the pub for not adhering to Covid-19 guidelines.


Preston City Council has confirmed a complaint was received about the pub.

The Moor Park’s management has now put in additional Covid-19 protection measures in line with government guidance, following a visit from the council’s Environmental Health team.

This is the second time the pub has been accused of flouting lockdown measures after allowing people to drink in the pub whilst it was closed during the lockdown.
