The Pub title doesn't do the Gate justice. It's so much more than that. The owners have created a brilliantly different, quirky, homely place. Great for a nice pint and a read of the paper, but also a fantastic venue to take the kids for food, entertainment and drinks. I just wish we had somewhere like this when our kids were growing up.
The decor is a wonderful shabby chic, vintage, distressed style. You feel instantly at home. The owners are welcoming and always happy to chat. There's bags of stuff for kids to get involved in, games, chalk boards, you name it, and in the evenings and weekends the Gate offers plenty of clubs to keep kids occupied and interested. Plus on Saturdays it's Pancake Day! Much much better than a Happy Meal!
The Gate offers even more! Part of the bar area is given over to a craft, vintage and local arts shop. Bought my wife a great music inspired bag fob. Plus it's a great emergancy card shop should you ever forget. No more garage based cards anymore plus you can treat yourself to a pint of Doombar whilst you shop.
And when the Doombar gets those taste buds going, the tempting Potted Meat midnight feats are so much better than a packet of crisps! And if you're lucky you can catch a local band playing. What more can you ask for in a local?
