First time in Bude and was recommended this by a relative. Food is lovely and service great. Have been there 3 times in a week. There are 3 or 4 starters about 7_8 mains and 3 or 4 deserts. Local pub that welcome families and dogs. Although quite a small venue, the tables are well seperated. No TV or fruit... More

The Preston Gate is exactly the sort of pub you look for when you are on holiday.. particularly in the West Country... and usually struggle to find. The staff were friendly, accommodated our golden retriever and produced some excellent home-cooked food. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

While stopping in the area we kept driving past the Preston gate and kept saying we must stop. Well on the last night of our holiday we made it and it was such a shame we left it till the last night From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome and the food was amazing.... More

Drove through Bude but really didn't fancy stopping and thought we'd go back to our cottage but happened to pass The Preston Gate Inn and decided to give it a try. So glad we did,lovely friendly service and a delicious bacon and brie sarnie, thick cut bread with plenty of filling,... More

Happened upon this pub down the road from where we were staying. It's a small cosy pub which has live music on various days during the week fri/sat - we enjoyed our visit but more set up for pub food when we visited but had a few drinks outside in the evening sunshine.

Very friendly local pub with excellent food. It's exactly what you want from a small pub. Can get very busy so booking advised.
