The Crafty Beggars Ale House is converting a shop unit on the A6 Garstang Road on the junction with The Black Bull pub.

Approved planning documents from applicant Philip Binks of Leisure P & P Limited say: “The micro-pub will be called the Crafty Beggars Ale House, and as a micro-pub will be designed to draw a more mature crowd in search of a traditional small pub atmosphere.

"The pub will sell local cask ales sourced predominantly from the north-west area.
