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

Three of us came here for some drinks and a meal before the Billy Joel concert at Wembley on 10th September. We arrived at 6pm and were looking to get a cab at 7:30pm so had plenty of time. When ordering our drinks however we were told that there was currently an hours wait for food. This was a problem... More

went for lunch ordered a beer from hand pumps, it was cloudy/sour/off/undrinkable, told bar staff who exchange it begrudgingly no apology. Next one no better asked to change for something esle as this was also undrinkable, the response was 'you do know it's bitter'. Charming! If she can't tell when beers off she shouldn't be selling it. Food was OK... More

We meet in the Preston once a month. My most recent visit was marred only by the fact that they were not open until after midday. But the premises are pleasant and comfortable, the drinks are reasonably priced, the food is good and good value and the service is friendly and efficient.

Part of the Ember Inn chain of pubs. Has a car park which you need to pay for but is reimbursed if you buy a drink. Staff are friendly when you finally get served. Need more of them if you ask me. Lots of seating is available.

Good place to eat and drink given I was working away from home and staying at a local The Brent Hotel. - Not too expensive, however the food was a little dear but not overly. - Good service - A little too busy at times but once you hae a table its fine - Clean place
