The owner of the Tulketh Tap Room in Preston has taken to social media to set the record straight regarding the closure of the bar.


Ray Woods closed Tulketh Tap Room temporarily as he and his staff were finding it frustrating asking bar-goers to constantly abide by Covid regulations.

The bar even recently employed door staff to try and make a difference, but unfortunately it did not seem to act as a deterrent for ‘merry’ punters.

In the post, he expressed his frustrations at having to tell customers to sit down.

In an interview with Blog Preston Ray said: “I don’t think some people who haven’t seen their mates in six months seem to understand that it’s my license at stake here.

“I’ve told staff members now that if a group stand up more than twice then they’re not to be served again.

“It’s just a select few not abiding by the Covid rules – most people are.

“I’ll be glad to be back on Wednesday, I just hope people listen this time.”

The bar received messages of support regarding their closure.

Resident Jacqui Jones said: “I hope now customers follow the rules and realise not only are they causing you an inconvenience but stopping others and themselves having a lovely place to go.”

An impressed customer Vicki Halliday Waugh said: “Your staff were amazing when we came in the other week. Everything you had in place was fantastic.”

The bar will be back open Wednesday, 12 May from 11am.
