The Dog and Partridge, Preston

Pub now has a very good beer garden/smoking sheletr which has much improved the tip outside that it wss although parts of it could do with a tidy up. The pub inside is very much as it has beem for the last 12 years or so. There is a new juke box which is probably not as good as the the old one in temrs of tunes but it has some newer stuff on there. Unfortunatley since t last write up ( as Reverandbrother- I am now Revernadbrother2 as forgot password) the prices in the pub have gone up considerbaly. Ok prices have gone up almsot everywhere but PUnch Taverns seem to keep upping the prices. It is now 2.43 for a pint of Ale- soon to rise v soon by 5p a pint & no doubt will go up again after the budget. The Ales are very good & kept well. Currently there is still Tim Taylor Landord & a new one Youngs- Black Sheep. Gone is Fullers London Pride which was replaced briefly by Bass- Best Bitter. There is usually 2 guest ales on. Teltley's Mild & Teltelys Cream Flow, Strongbow Cider, Carling, Carlsberg & Stella on tap. There is a good doubles bar & range of bottled drinks. Soft drinks are expensive. The food is cheap, good but basic. There is no longer an 'Open Mic Night' but there appears to be regular bands on Tuesdays & there is always the pub quiz on Thursdays. The toilets are still awful & smell with windows broken. The pool table is extremely cheap- possibly the cheapest in town ???. There is on the whole a good atmosphere in the pub but changes on what day it is & what evening. It is still a good pub & is popular with ageing rockers, ex or wanna bilkers, ex students & the alternative/rock/indie/punk type people. With the proces going up though & it being a bit cliquely at times it is not as good as ity used to be. Considering that you have The Olde BlackBull, Weatherspoons, The New Brit & Bittersuite all nearby which can be quite a lot cheaper (open all day) & have a larger range of ale & look better inside it is probably time to say ( with a heavy heart) time to move on. Think- the last time i went to the Continential there were 4 ales on starting at 2 a pint with the most expensive being 2.50 . I would still recommend poping in though as it may be right up your street.
