Plau Gin and Beer House is back under its original management team.

Jeremy and Rebecca Rowlands opened the venue in 2018, but ended their involvement towards the end of 2022 due to other time commitments.

The venue then remained open under different management.

The venue was since returned to Jeremy and Rebecca at the beginning of August.

As part of that deal, the pair also assumed management of the Fino Tapas brand, although not the company that owned Fino and its obligations.

That company, which was founded by Preston restaurateur Mark O’Rourke, has seen various changes in the past year.

The Lytham branch of Fino Tapas closed after 12 months of trading in August last year, while Preston city centre Mexican restaurant La Neta shut in May.

Then, in June, the Preston branch of Fino relocated from Guildhall Street to the second floor of Plau.

All the existing staff at Fino Tapas have been re-employed since Jeremy and Rebecca stepped back in and no redundancies were made.

Jeremy said: “We only had two days notice, but we have been enjoying and relishing the challenge.

“August has been about stabilising the business. We are now pushing forward with new ideas to keep things fresh.

“Fino still has the same kitchen team and customers can expect the same freshly cooked, delicious tapas they have had in the past. We still think Fino is a great brand and look forward to taking things forward into a new chapter.”

Of those new ideas, Plau Gin and Beer House will soon be ready to announce plans through the Autumn and Winter for its underground area known as The Vaults.
