What a little hidden gem. If you didn't know about this place you'd never find it. Obviously everyone knows about it because the place is just hopping! It truly is a destination place for those in the know. The atmosphere of a British pub has been recreated to perfection. The food also is authentic and tasty. Among the 4 of... More

We happened upon this place while on the Cedar and Yellow Point Artisans' Association Country Christmas Self-Guided Tour. It was a great find. Except for driving on the right side of the road even the approach to the pub has an authentically British feel. The grounds are lovely even on a cold November day. We timed our arrival well because... More

We stopped in at the Crown & Gate for lunch on our way to enjoy Cedar & Yellowpoint's Christmas tour. Because of the tour we were on a wait list for lunch @2:00. When we finally got seats we had to wait more than 45 minutes for a lunch & part of it was not available. What did come was... More

Want an English pub experience without going all the way to England? This is it! Food was awesome, typical English pub affair, the atmosphere was amazing.

My previous review rated this wonderful place highly despite limited vegetarian options. The menu has changed, and last visit there was an amazing curry-infused macaroni and cheese on the menu - it was outstanding. Thanks Crow and Gate. If you are visiting the area, this really is a local institution and a must-visit.

This pub is my favourite! It is oldie British inside with two large fireplaces. When the weather cooperates, the gardens are beautiful to sit in for lunch and dinner. The menu is British pub fare, pies, ploughman's lunch etc. Great atmosphere and a lot of fun...

I've been going to the Crow and Gate for years. It's usually crazy busy but worth the wait. Good food, fun atmosphere. I love the crab cakes! Yum.
