First look as new Preston micro pub sets its sights on opening

Written by on June 19, 2020

Work continues to progress on a new Preston micro pub which is set to open its doors lockdown is relaxed for the hospitality industry.

The new watering hole, called Tulketh Tap Room, will hopefully open from next month if the Government relaxes its rules for pubs, bars, and restaurants.

July 4 is the currently opening date which many venues are aiming to reopen following more than three months of closures to stop the spread of coronavirus.

And the team behind Tulketh Tap Room, childhood friends Wayne Martin and Ray Woods, have been busy, laying new decking outside the micro pub ahead of opening.

Images of the work were shared across social media yesterday (May 18) by Preston photographer Tony Worrall.

The pub will be next to the Spar shop in Tulketh Brow, Ashton-on-Ribble, in what used to be Salvador Heath and Recovery.

It is licensed to open from 10am to midnight, Monday to Sunday.

The hope is to operate as a coffee shop in the mornings before turning to ale later on.

Speaking in May, Ray said: “It’s taken nine months to get planning approved, so during that time I’ve done licensing and cellar courses, and visited lots of micro pubs to ask advice and pick up tips.

“It has been a good excuse to drink beer!”

The micro pub’s decor will have an “industrial feel”, Ray says, with exposed brick walls.

There will be 12 lines of beer including plus cider, wine and gin.

“I love sitting out with a cold beer, so there will also be outdoor areas at the front and back”, Ray said.
