I had some great nights out there... 29 hilarious pictures of raucous scenes at The Stanley Arms in Preston

With The Stanley Arms now under new ownership and going from strength to strength in the city centre, we take a look back at times gone by at the beloved pub.

With The Stanley Arms having closed its doors last October ahead of a council licensing review, the pub even had to cancel a ‘farewell party’ last year.

Thankfully for local punters, the establishment has since reopened under new stewardship, so here we take a look back at the good times had at the beloved Preston boozer.

And, as reader Pat Edgeley says of The Stanley: “Great night out.”
