We went to the Preston pub for a quick business meeting allied with a bite to eat and a drink or four. A sign of the times maybe but their broadband was down, however their helpful manager patched us in to his private wifi. Affordable food, exceptional service - a must visit!

Great service, friendly staff and a good selection of food. My family and friends were very impressed with the Preston. The pub ticked all the satisfactory boxes on that evening and parking was good too. I'm eager to visit them again soon.

Visited here as some friends were up in Wembley for a show on saturday night. Came here for sunday lunch. Pub is nicely decorated and seems well kept together. Staff were friendly and helpful! Had the sunday lunch which was OK. Car park looked like it was pay and display which is a surprise for a pub

I'm not sure why I didn't take to this place, it has all the ingredients to make it memorable, but it just didn't work for me. I found the décor and style of the place a bit tired rather than authentic and traditional. Our food options were the Terrayaki chicken which met with approval, and the Chicken Tikka for me... More
