Description: " 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.

“Great Food with lots of Outdoor Space to enjoy the Sun”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The family and I called in on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed an exceptional meal. We had a range of dishes including a ham salad, the Gate Gourmet Beef Burger (stacked high with cheese, bacon & bbq onion relish), a steak & stilton sandwich and Children's chicken strips. All dishes were cooked to perfection and enjoyed in the beer garden.

“Just great!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We visited today with two friends for Sunday lunch. We had a lovely welcome by the staff (mainly young, but certainly knew their job) and drinks were soon ordered and brought to our table. We all had the traditional Sunday lunch, but not having large appetites, ordered small portions which were just the right amount for us. Vegetables that were beautifully cooked were brought in a separate dish which we could help ourselves to. Everything was just right - the meat was tasty and tender, roast potatoes perfectly cooked and the mash velvety. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will come again.

“Fantastic food and lots of it”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

The Gate appears to be part way through a renovation so don't be put off by the outside of the pub which seem a bit dated. Inside it's fresh, airy and light with a nice extension and a large outdoor space which is currently being worked on.
We went for a birthday meal on a Thursday and, although they had not actually written down our booking, we still managed to grab a table.in the extension.
Starters of White bait and Brie Wedges with cranberry sauce were plentiful and gorgeous. Followed by hearty portions of Steak and Ale pie and a vegertarian proofed ploughmans and nice hand cut chips.
We were utterly stuffed and it all came to under £30 including drinks. Staff whizzed about, constantly checking everything was all right and managing to be cheerful and efficient despite the fact they were very busy.
Heartily recommend. Will be back :)

“A lovely escape from the camping stove!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This pub has been recently renovated (Still a few bits to finish outside) and had been recommended to us by a regular caravaning friend nearby. We had a fantastic meal which was served by the friendliest staff we have experienced in a while (sorry didn't get names). I had a huge steak which was locally sourced and delicious, with all the trimmings for only about £10!
The pie of the day was pork and apple with a stuffing top crust, which hubby assured me was very impressive!
The decor in the bar and also the dining room was stunning, which was a surprise as the outside is very traditional.
Had a lovely game of petanque outside afterwards.
Our boys aged 13 and 10 were made very welcome, and the menu adjusted slightly to accommodate the fussy one!! (thank you).
So good we booked for the following night.
