Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a 60th party in the function room at The Gate with my family. The room is a nice size. The location is lovely and the food and service was great.

I’ve been to this pub several times over the last 6 months and the service is always quite slow, and when I last visited with a group of friends and our children, we felt like we were inconveniencing the woman behind the bar when we...wanted to order food. She was quite rude, as was the chef when he brought some of the food outside to us. The menu has also changed recently and there’s very little on it now. I won’t be in a hurry to visit again anytime soon.More

We’ve been a couple of times. My daughter (5) loves the play areas and really enjoyed the food. She even asks to go here, when we are going out for food. The staff have always been friendly when we’ve been 😊 The masala fries Tomato...salad Halloumi Caesar here are all the best I’ve had.More

The Gate Pub is in a beautiful location surrounded by hills and fields. We hired the function room for an evening in order to hold a special family gathering. It has access to a private garden area and has a private bar. We wanted a...relaxed atmosphere with people able to move between the function room and the garden as they pleased. It was perfect for our needs. The owners of the pub were friendly and accommodating. They let us decorate the room the night before which helped us tremendously. During the evening the staff were friendly and attentive. We’d ordered a number of pizzas in different flavours for everyone to share and they were delicious. The evening was a great success thanks to The Gate Pub.More

We were delighted to find somewhere still serving food on a Sunday afternoon and had optimistic expectations as this pub looks good and is located in such a beautiful setting. We ordered a nut roast and a lamb shoulder which were both served luke warm....The portion sizes were underwhelming. We mentioned that the Yorkshire puddings were literally cold so the dishes were taken back and re-served with new (cold) Yorkshire puddings! By this time everything else on the plate was lukewarm. I know we arrived late but the food was really stale and at least needed to be heated through properly to be considered passable. The nut roast was dry and flavourless. We were hungry so we ate. In terms of the service the staff/owners did not smile or engage with us at all. The park area was unkept and dilapidated with dirty equipment that is not safe for kids. For £57 for dinner for 2 plus 1 toddler with soft drinks, I expect better. Like hot food and service with a smile. I don’t think it’s much to ask. We will not be going back.More

We appeared out of the blue for Easter Sunday lunch. Despite how busy they were they managed to fit us in. The food was great, generously portioned, and arrived quickly. I have to say that all the staff were both thoroughly professional, courteous and friendly....It was a great experience and I most certainly will be going againMore

We were really impressed with the quality of the food when we came for dinner last weekend. My Siracha chick starter and fish and chips main were absolutely delicious. It felt really special. Looking forward to coming back.

This is a lovely pub nestled in a beautiful valley. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The food is of a high standard and is extremely tasty. The pub not only offers good pub food, it also makes authentic curries. People from far come...to enjoy the 'The Curry Club' that is held once a month. I highly recommend a visit.More

We booked a table for 2 for 5pm. The person taking the call must have misheard and thought we were a party of 5. They confirmed they were expecting us for 5pm. No matter. We then asked what the meat was in the 'Pie of...the day' and was told it was beef so that's what we ordered. The menu clearly stated it came with gravy but when it came out we had to ask for it. And to our surprise when we opened the pie it was chicken. I think it came with mushrooms and was flavoured with Tarragon. Now some people might not like that flavour. When we were asked if everything was OK we mentioned the fact that we were expecting beef and the person said that the pies must have been yesterday's. Well I didn't want yesterday's pie - but, by that time we had started to eat the dinner. So why can't the pies be labeled 'beef' or 'chicken'? My other problem was the grilled vegetables. They were far too undercooked. I like my vegetables with a bite but these barely saw any cooking. OK, I should have said something to the waitress but when you go out to dinner you don't want to spend time complaining. The proprietors are trying to make a go of it putting on a free band for the evening and a reasonable children's menu for what I saw, with a large play area to keep the children occupied but when you're just out for a meal the meal itself is an important part of the experience.More
