We went to the pub for a Saturday evening meal - 5 of us. 3 adults, 2 teenagers The menu is not set and changes every day so if you have fussy eaters or children I would recommend you check this on the day before going just in case they don;t have anything suitable.

During a very wet visit to Bude we decided we wanted a Sunday lunch, as ever leaving it to the last minute the first pub we tried was fully booked, we then stumbled across the Preston Gate Inn, it was a very traditional pub and clearly quite old, we were told they had a spare table and that on a...

Spent a very pleasant, albeit a little cold, evening in the Preston Gate. Local beers were excellent and the food tasty, hot and well prepared. The evening was rounded off by a welcoming tot of Lagavulin. Turn the heating up a bit though my friends ....
