Sunday roast was very good with generous portions in this pub in Bryants Bottom. The atmosphere was a bit lacking in the carvery room, but is does serve its purpose to seat the number of people that visit. The beer was OK but seemed a little tired when we visited. Service was good and friendly. The chef made a special... More

We're huge fans of the Gate. Have eaten there fairly regularly for 7-8 years. The atmosphere is always nice and the food is always excellent, varied, unusual and plentiful, We thought we'd go and see how it was now under new management. We went on Saturday and noticed that the menu was now both limited and pretty ordinary. That's not... More

Well known local pub always popular with decent variety on the menua and friendly ambience with good outdoor facilities. The food was good with chunky portions and no problems but then nothing really outstanding either. Does what you expect and well and has a reputation for reliability.

The staff were very friendly, food was massive portions and reasonably priced. Nice pub in a quiet location. Can't think of a single negative :)

Attended with my wife and 2 year old and met with friends who also brought their children. It was so ideal for the children, a large contained play area with slides, swings etc. The play area was kept seperate from the outdoor dining area although there were a few tables and chairs to allow for you to eat while they...

Set in the Chiltern hills, so a good pub to stop at to quench your thirst after a bit of a ramble. Garden is quite large and there's a children's play area. Pub is very dated and dark. Staff are very friendly.
