Old Boots left this review about Guild Ale House

Generally a great pub but when busy I was a bit miffed by the blatant preferential service to locals, otherwise well worth the visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Guild Ale House

This micro is located behind Preston's Town Hall and close to the Guild Hall. We visited here on a Saturday, so this part of town was very quiet. It was good to see quite a few drinkers already supping away on our lunchtime visit.
The main features here was the original shop front with large windows either side of an internal framed glass front entrance. The bar area positioned on the left of entrance was also quite elaborate, finished in oak, along with a brass handrail around the counter. Seating in the main bar consisted of high and low tables and chairs, plus there was also a smaller room leading off this with some upholstered bench seating, which was slightly more private. Seven ales on handpump, so we went for the Farmyard Ales TVO 54 Blonde Ale and the Wishbone Tiller Pin, both were fine and only priced at £2.95 a pint.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Guild Ale House

More of a mini-pub than a micro one, with a second small room behind the main bar area. Still, much the same ethos though, with a limited amount of seating and sparse decoration that does not detract from the main feature, namely the bar and its seven handpumps. I went for the Ramsbury RPA (£2.90), but with the varied choice from the other pulls it would have been easy to have chosen differently.
