“Good food, good price, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We have visited The Preston twice in the last fortnight and had a lovely lunchtime meal on both occasions. The burgers are excellent, we had the cheese and bacon burger, and the very good pulled pork burger, the fish pie was well worth having too.
The menu doesn't mention the weight of the burgers, but I would say 6oz. Don't order the double unless you have a big appetite, I did thinking it would be a 4oz burger and it was huge!
The staff are very good, friendly, and knowledgable about the food. Good prices as well.
A comfy pub with a good atmosphere, and roaring fires to ward off the recent cold weather.

“The closest you'll get to a country pub for miles...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The Preston is part of the Embers Inn group, which is probably a notch up from the likes of Wetherspoon pubs. Fairly traditional decor and three fireplaces give the Preston a country pub feel, and the serviice and food quality is good. There's also a large garden in the rear with apple trees for warmer days (if they ever come). Good drinks selection; 3 rotating ales on tap and all the Diageo whiskies. Overall, a very good pub.

“Cosy and welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

We visited her twice in December. On this occasion we were on our own.

The food was hot and nicely cooked and served. The waitress was smashing - friendly and helpful. I wish we lived a little closer so we could go back!
