Well, given it's proximity to the station, this one is just that, a pub by a station. It's not terrible, as they do try with a reasonable beer selection on the five hand pumps and the staff are pleasant enough. It's got lots of tellys and music, and apparently gets packed with students of an evening. It's not going to suffer for punters and it does what the majority of them need it to do, including a beer garden out the back. The signs everywhere saying the premises has CCTV are not a good sign, however, so they've obviously had some trouble in the past. Not great, but not one we'll go out of our way for.

i took my daughter for lunch when it arrived it was overcooked fish & chips with no lemon slice and it was dark brown. my side order of garlic bread was forgotten & i was charged £2 for 3 measly overcooked slices. when i mentioned it to the barman i was told oh sorry. save your money dont eat there i wont be going again....disgusting service & attitude.

This pub keeps its clock five minutes fast and they open and close by it. That means if you turn up at 10.56 they won't serve you. I complained to Preston's licensing dept. but they didn't seem interested.

This is a proper pub.
Excellent well looked after real ales on hand pump.
Proper pub grub at a reasonable price.
A little snug at the back where it's a bit quieter.
