Having checked out some of the eateries in Bude, we decided The Preston Gate Inn, 15 minutes walk from our Motorhome Site would be the best option for meeting up with our friends, from Scotland who were on a self-catering break with their 2 dogs....More

Have come back after visiting last year when here on holiday. Still fabulous food and such friendly service dealing with a mixed party of 10 people. Would thoroughly recommend- our family was all ages from 10 through to 86!!!!

First time to Cornwall and on a weeks holiday so wanted to try local pubs. What a let down. very small and an awfully limited menu of very basic choices. Food well below average. Dog friendly ok. Staff miserable. Place looks unhygienic. Avoid.

Managed to get a late booking for 2 people. Had a wonderful meal. The food is always plentiful and lovely. It has become our go to place for at least one evening during our stay in the area.

Always a good atmosphere (likely helped by it being a fairly small pub). Food is good pub grub though choices are a bit limited. Staff friendly. Regular music nights and saw they're advertising a 2 courses for £12 deal on Tuesdays which is good value.

Absolutely lovely meal in a proper local pub I had the chicken breast, husband had the fish pie, both really good.

Although not an extensive menu, varying weekly and different from normal pub grub. At £12 for two courses, during the week - excellent value & well worth a visit.

Hi, Children are always welcome (as are well behaved dogs!), we have wheelchair access and free WIFI. We do have fish and chips for £5 on Friday lunchtimes but no special drinks deals - our website does contain more details.
