You'll love The Gate - great food, service and atmosphere I was confidently told. Alas none of the foregoing matched the superlative descriptions. The Gate is a large, rambling, untidy and gloomy dark wooden beamed pub-cum-restaurant. It certainly could not be described as a gastropub.
Packed to the rafters both inside and out, we were seated at a none too clean table, surrounded by screaming kids and noisy adults in tatty surroundings. Food was dire, but even the cheerful service could not disguise the awfulness of the place. Our friends were clearly enjoying everything about the Gate - my husband and I were not! Another visit ?? NO way!
