Continuing our beer journey of Hungerford. Three ales at the Down Gate. Three beers on but all Arkells. Not my favourite and just ok.

I've driven past this pub hundreds of times but finally went in on Saturday. Lots of curiosities hanging from the ceilings, on the walls, even in the urinals! I'm not a big fan of Arkells ales but this one was acceptable.
