I'll definitely come... More

The pub is centrally placed and spacious. The beer is cheap and the food good value - the latter being as long as it is tasty. Monday night has a new theme - Mexican. I had a plate of nachos, covered in sour cream and salsa, to begin. They were OK. For the main, I had a quesadilla. It was... More

Don't get me wrong I like wither-spoons and grade them in the right context. If I pay plenty I expect plenty and I know what to expect from this type of pub. This fell short. Staff behind the bar rude and un friendly we had a problem with the lager my female friend queued again to change if was treated... More

Some friends and I visited the Gate House for some drinks and a meal. They always have a great selection of beers on draft at very good prices. I ordered the 14oz Angus rump steak. It came with chips, peas and a mushroom and I have to say was cooked just right for me (medium rare). As it came with... More

The Gate House didn't disappoint. The pub is light and airy in a good position in Doncaster. There are tables outside which would be lovely to sit at... More
