“Recommend, recommend, recommend!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Fantastic!!!! Exactly what I wanted...no froo-froo nonsense...just good honest food done with that extra "because we honestly LOVE what we do".Brilliant sirloin steak, done perfectly. Absolute BEST roast potato wedges I have EVER had....and I make flipping good roasties. Looks are deceiving...Good honest food,not just slapped on a plate because "a well...we're in the country so can get away with it".....fantastic QUALITY!!! Recommend, recommend, recommend. Dinner & drinks for 2 people under R300!!!!!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We have eaten at Preston's a couple of times in the past and were very happy with the experience. Unfortunately our latest visit was very disappointing. Two steaks were ordered one medium and one medium rare. Both were overdone. The pork fillets were also very dry. Our first choice wine was out of stock. The staff were friendly and accommodating but not that efficient. We won't be rushing back!

“Delicious Beef & Guinnes Pie”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

This pie is packed with goodf quality beef, served with vegetables and excellent pumpkin pie. Janey & her husband have owned the restuarant for the past 3 months, very friendly, good service and reasonably priced. We sat out on the nice sheltered patio at the back looking onto the garden. We will definitely go back to Prestons when in Montagu again.

“Most authentic pub in South Africa”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

My 89-year old British born mum rated Prestons as the best pub she's been to in South Africa - and she should know she lived in one in her teens. James and Janey very friendly and hospitable going out of their way to help us. Lovely pub atmosphere, roaring log fire to warm us on a cold, wet evening and lovely pub grub.

“Local and Lekker”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I recently over-nighted in Montagu and Prestons was recommended by the B&B. Prestons was in walking distance so there was no issue about enjoying the local wine and driving. The hamburger and salad was awesome, the locals around the bar welcoming and friendly, the real wood fire warming on a very wet and stormy night and Frikkie, the little dachshund "vacuum cleaner" just the best!
