Comments:
For a pub so close to the University, it's difficult to understand why it doesn't appear to be popular. If it wasn't in the area it is, I suspect that it would have closed many years ago. It has very little going for it except it's location.

Comments:
There was a rumour in 2001 that this pub would be physically extended to include the car park area at the back and become the student pub in the area.
In April 2003 it has been announced that the pub will have a refurbishment to rearrange the current floorplan (and not extend as previously thought).

Did You Know?
The term packet in the pub name refers to Packet Steamer boats that were seen at Preston Docks in the last century (sometimes carrying wool from local farmer's Lamb's) .
