Nice evening was great atmosphere staff were warm and welcoming. Food was excellent, not a massive menu but what they do they do really well. Top notch staff real credit to the team I would definitely return.

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

Found local pub doing decent Sunday Lunch, didn't book, but was lucky to find a table. Nice atmosphere, friendly smiling staff, lots of families with children, who very very well behaved. Sunday Lunch portions were of a good size, roasties, carrots, parsnips and greens all good, Yorkshire's and gravy were passable. Chicken was very tasty but Beef was a bit... More

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

Have visited and reviewed The Preston before. This time my wife and I visited to enjoy dinner together and try out their latest menu. We were delighted that the new menu includes duck, which I enjoyed very much and will almost certainly be ordering again! Disappointed that Lamb Shank had been dropped from the menu, hopefully this might return on... More

Having visited this venue in the past, and thoroughly enjoying the experience, my wife and I decided it was high time for a return visit. We went last Sunday and, knowing that Sunday lunch time is always a busy period, we went late afternoon. There seemed to be a shortage of staff on this occasion resulting in a long queue... More

The pub is located close to Preston Road station. It has a lot of character and a great laid back attitude, just right for a lazy sunday afternoon. I ordered standard brunch menu of Roast Chicken and Apple pie and custard for dessert. Service was prompt. Food was tasty. The vegetables melted in my mouth. The gravy was delicious. The... More
