Walked from Lickpenny caravan park so needed a drink when we got here. Didn't eat just drank. Staff were friendly. Worth the walk.

" The Gate Inn " caters for everyone. Being a village pub: local's call in for quick pint along with the pool and darts and boules teams who's friendly banter provides a great family and friendly atmosphere. Our extensive food menu and reasonably priced list of selected beers and wines have found popularity with our regular customers who give us honest feedback to keep us fresh and on our toes. Our new private function room with its own bar and rest room facilities room can cater for up to 100 diners which is great for those family occasions. With two outdoor terraces with great views over the countryside you can relax whist the kids play in secure area playground.
