Will Larter left this review about The Continental

The Continental can be reached by a 15 minute walk from the station (along Walton's Parade and West Cliff, then by a path on the right which runs parallel to and beneath the railway bridge) or by a more leisurely stroll from the town centre through the park and along the impressive Ribble. Is it worth it, though? There's an impressive array of beers (see photo), and I dare say the food is ok, and the building and garden are well presented. But there's not much of a publike feel to the place, which may suit family groups having a meal, but not so much beer tourists, I would suggest. There's nothing wrong with the beer, but for what is still an out of the way destination, despite my helpful directions, I was left with a bit of an "is that all it is" feeling. Looking again at my photos of the exterior of the amalgamated buildings that make up the pub, I guess I was hoping the interior would be more interesting.

a large destination pub in what seems like a nice area of Preston although not the easiest to find. handy for walks in the massive park and along the river. the pub itself is actually a bit boring considering what I had heard about it, a massive riverside CAMRA/dining barn, a middle class Wetherspoons, I wouldn't rush back unless I was with the family
