    I was there on Good Friday and it definitely had a bit of a rough edge in the bar, and the whole place was a bit of a mess. That said, the beer was surprisingly excellent.

    Almost certainly not a permanent closure (Sam Smiths don’t sell pubs off, as a rule), but it could be a lengthy one as they are really struggling to find managers to run their pubs these days.

    To clarify, the cask in Hopwoods is ‘only’ £5.50 a pint, I think the half that Peter Ashworth had was a keg beer. Still pretty extortionate for Preston.

    Continental is quite a pleasant walk through the Avenham/Miller Park, and you can always do the Winckley Ale House en route..

    Your best option on Friargate is probably the impressive Plau.
