A nice pub, just  pity a about the customer with mental problems that stands at the bar as you walk in. While I found him a little sad it might be a off putting to some be followed outside and down the road for a few yards by this idiot shouting and swearing at the top of his voice.

Anyhow it's a nice pub with very friendly customers

Non-members will be able to see 2 of these photos in a day or two.

Sorry about photo #3 we was in a rush to catch our train home.   From the record I started out at 5-55am and got back in at 10-45pm. So yes a very long day but well worth it.

   ::T:: Just to make it very clear to members, the person with the mental problem it not in any of the photographs.

Unfortunately SS pubs attract some of the wrong people in society. Pity, but true in some SS pubs. It was a long day for you Ian. Have you nearly got to 300 SS pubs yet ?

What's going with the toilets though, interesting tiles
The opinions that I express are my own !! A Fan of SSOB products. Time for a pint of OBB

I only take and post photos of the toilets if they look like they may be of interest to members.  I do know that at least one of your members dose like to look  at the architectural details. 

Non-members can now see some of these photos on................

Just click on any of the nearly 700 thumbnails to the photo in detail.

A further update. was there this week in the SSmobile.

I had no problems at all with any of the colourful customers. In fact they were a very friendly bunch who wanted their picture taken!

They bemoaned the fact that Ye Olde Blue Belle (it's correct title) is almost the last proper pub left in Preston.

Not dog friendly and no hand-pumps.
