We've eaten at this lovely little pub several times in the past couple of years now and have never been disappointed. Last night we went there for our Anniversary and had their Trout Fish Cakes. They were divine, as was the lovely fresh salad, cole slaw and new potatoes that went with them. All so well prepared and cooked, just wonderful. Such good value too. My husband loves the selection of real ales they always have and the wines are equally good too. We live locally and also own a small holiday let. We will continue recommending The Preston Gate, to our clients, as the best pub near Bude.

Stopped off at this pub for some lunch during a quick visit to Bude in the middle of a long journey.

Friendly staff, very welcoming.

We both ordered baguettes which were both so good, huge portions, freshly made and so tasty.

Would definitely recommend :)

Although my partner and I visited last summer during our vacation I felt compelled to write a review of what was a lovely experience all this time later.

The pub is tucked away in an idyllic country setting, hidden to the point our gps struggled to find it, but when we got there it was more than worth it.

The pub oozes character and the atmosphere was great, as were the two members of staff we encountered who were very hospitable. The food was fantastic also, I've been more than tempted to make the hundred odd mile journey to taste that lamb pie again on numerous occasions!

The one (minor) quibble I would have was that the menu was rather limited, but with that being said we had two fussy children with us and they managed to find something they enjoyed.

If you're nearby do not hesitate to go, it turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday!

We were looking for a good pub meal near Bude on a day out, and boy did we find it! Following the other reviews on tripadvisor we thought we'd give the Preston Gate Inn a whirl. The food was generously portioned, the staff exceptionally brilliant, all were cheery, friendly, helpful, warming and genuine, and the food was of very good value and excellent - exceptional quality! All homemade and genuinely something to rave about, particularly in this day and age. We unknowingly arrived 2 hours early for food on our visit, but the staff saw to it that we were accommodated 45 minutes early. Nothing was too much bother. I can't recommend this place highly enough. If it's a good, no - great, country pub meal you're after, the Preston Gate Inn is what you want!

Visited here as a part of four in January 2014. The service was exceptional and we were immediately made to feel at home. The menu was quite small but the food was excellent and the chef even came out to check everything was okay. Will definitely return here on my next trip to Bude.
