During the summer months, happy revellers can be seen occupying the street-side benches, more often than not while tucking into baskets of Lost Boys Chicken, who operate out of the kitchen. Lost Boys Chicken serve New York-style chicken wings, sandwiches (burgers) and sides. Their range of homemade sauces make for a lip-smacking, finger-licking thoroughly delicious meal, served daily until 10 pm – perfect for friends who don’t mind getting messy.

There is some outside seating available, a grand main room with high ceilings, a grand dark wood bar, and an additional lounge room upstairs that’s available for private hire through the week and open for more intimate rendezvous over the weekend.  


Upstairs is their elegantly styled cocktail lounge, which offers something a little more relaxed, compared to the tempo of the lively downstairs bar. This intimate space is an oasis set above the busy Preston Circus with large windows, plush velvet sofas and a classic cocktail menu. The Cocktail Lounge is available for private parties of up to 40 persons.
