Excellent home made food, friendly, efficient and helpful staff. couldn't do enough to help. Our visit was a first to the White Bull and we went to check it out and introduce ourselves as the next day we were having a wake at the restaurant. The day of the wake again was as above and they even gave us take... More

A most disappointing Sunday lunch, a huge pile of food topped with an overdone Yorkshire pudding, vegetables not fresh just really awful. Deserts not good either sticky toffee pudding had obviously been microwaved and was like rubber, Eton mess consisted of a bought meringue shell 1 strawberry and cream. Presentation on the roast dinners was awful but nice presentation on... More

Possibly the best meal I had for years. The friendliness of the staff down to the Chefs coming to the table not often done nowadays. The starter to the sweet was excellent cannot criticise anything at all. I can highly recommend the White Bull to anyone wanting very tasty food cooked to perfection.

Last time visited prior to renovations and what a lacklustre affair it turned out to be! Only went back this time because it was a gift. So glad we went! What a change. Warmly met and shown to a table (not the best) but changed to a better one upon request. All the food was excellent. They deserve to do... More

Been 4 times, I am considered by my friends as being over critical but if that's the case this should elevate the 5 stars Best food in the Preston area by a distance 👍

Hit this pub on Easter Sunday and they were kind enough to find a place late on the lunchtime. Generally no complaints with the food, everybody had wonderful main courses! Slightly slow with drinks orders and crayons for the kids, but I'm being picky. Puddings were also fabulous (especially the sticky toffee pudding), except the 'deconstructed' Eton mess. It's a...

We had Fishcakes and Tomato Soup for starters, the latter served with delicious, open-textured bread. Mushroom and Tomato Linguine, and Rag Pudding (now there's a dish crying out for an advertising executive's makeover) were just as delicious. What should we have for dessert? A Deconstructed Eton Mess? Surely that's an Eton Tidy, or perhaps a Neat 'n' Tidy? No. Mango... More

If there was a rating higher than 5 then The White Bull at Alston would merit it. Just back from lunch on a Travelzoo deal, so value for money was excellent. But we will be going back soon even if no deals available. The food was superb, the service both friendly and efficient, the ambience just right for pub lunch.... More

Nipped in on Good Friday and had a delicious dinner. Dad in law is coeliac and reacts very badly to any trace of gluten. We were offered a wide range of options and he was delighted with the lamb shank. Attentive service from the front of house team and once again a delicious meal. Many thanks.

Having recently moved to the area, we decided to walk down to the new local for lunch; we were not disappointed! We were immediately greeted on entry and shown to a table. The decor was a mix of modern elegant and country pub: a real fire and pictures of old Longridge on the wall. The extensive menu was supplemented by... More
