Meet at The Old Vic on Fishergate opposite Preston Station at 1.00pm.

If weather is dry we will walk to the Continental arriving at 2.00pm (it’s a 15 minute walk) but if weather is wet we will miss out the Continental and go straight to the third pub The Ale Emporium (formerly Bitter Suite). We should fine something to tempt us from the ten hand pumps!

Walking back towards town we will sample the delights of Old Black Bull before moving on to Preston’s newest addition to the real ale scene the Guild Ale House with seven hand pumps. Finally, before heading back to the station we will call at the Black Horse with four regulars from Robinsons and four guests.

Everyone should find something to excite their taste buds from the many ales we will find in the pubs.

Can’t make the start? Well don’t worry but join us on the way round. Call Gill on 07967 585670 to find out where we are.
