Sunday Lunch
We want to offer everything we believe a village pub should - brilliant, genuinely home cooked food, fantastic cask ale and a warm welcome for everyone from families to dog walkers, from locals to cyclists and from ramblers to business customers.

Chuck in some free wi-fi, freshly ground coffee, a kids corner with board games, and we should be all set.

We look forward to seeing you soon....

On ordering we were told few dishes were not available. Due to limited choices all of us ordered from the daily specials, three the same, the chicken curry taste was fine but the amount in the bowl was not even 20% it looked that one portion was shared out between three and the fourth order was meant to have stir fry vegetables but it tasted and looked like they leftovers from the chow mien which was one of dishes not available!!

Booked a table with friends for Sunday lunch roast and were very disappointed when handed a BBQ menu. The food was much to be desired and very basic in cardboard boxes.
Very let down as we had told our friends about your usual Sunday roast and were all looking forward to it, totally spoilt our Sunday!

Most dishes lovely but roasts weren’t as nice according to those who had them (my risotto was lovely!!!)

Having eaten here on numerous occasions we were very disappointed. The table was sticky and I asked for it to be cleaned as my arms kept sticking to it. The waitress cleaned it but it made no difference. The Yorkshire puddings were burnt and the reheated roast potatoes were inedible,
Charged 50p more for the roast pork than advertised and for a beverage that wasn’t ordered.

Our first visit with our dog to any pub - he was nervous & we were nervous as we didn't know how he would behave / react in such an environment. The staff were friendly and helped us feel at ease. We ate lunch and left, all without incident, leaving us and our hound a little braver and we look forward to coming again.
The food was nice, the pub is nice, staff were nice.
Thank you for welcoming us and our dog!

We were recommended to go to this venue by a friend - they had said how excellent the menu and food was and good value! As a result we took two guests with us and to be honest found it very disappointing - first of all the menu had changed to a ‘festive menu’ which was small and unimpressive. A couple of mistakes were made on our order and must stress that the waitress and waiter did their utmost to correct these mistakes - so no problem there. However the food was very disappointing - have had better burgers at a fast food joint and when I asked about vegetables (this was one of the things my friend who had recommended the venue had raved about ) there was little information and as a result we ordered no vegetables! My husband and I were embarrassed as we had recommended the place to our guests and there had been other venues discussed! The staff were friendly and cooperative but sadly everything else was to put it mildly - extremely dissappointing! Although too cold to sit outside we liked the look of the outdoor area and would consider trying again in the spring or summer in the hope that the food would be much better by then!

Iv been coming to the gate for many years but then it closed for several months but obviously re opened and been here a good few times. Each time myself and company have dined it has been without fault. The garden and surrounds are a lovely place to bring children especially on bbq afternoons. The staff manager and all customers seem friendly and approchable and are happy to assist. The lavatories have been always clean as with the pub and the gardens very well maintained. There is a nice selection of ales bitters and beers to choice from. I would find it very hard to believe that anybody should have any complaints about their visit to The Gate, in fact i have recommended it to many of my friends. Working in hospitality myself at a private boys school i understand the pressure on chefs hospitality assistants and staff to get things just right and you have just that. I look foward to returning and bring along some friends. Well done to all your staff its important to have a happy go lucky team you certainly come up trumps there. I hope you enjoy reading this feedback. 😀

Had an Irish family over, they loved the food and devoured everything!.. they especially liked the sticky toffee pudding... the best ever!
Service was great and we asked for extra bits and pieces and nothing was too much.
Really nice afternoon and it was quite late before we knew it!.. will be back soon.
Thanks

Welcoming and friendly bar staff. But restaurant cold and in need of re-decorating inside. Not to sure about dogs being in a restaurant either. Food prompt and warm but average. Sorry to say but I doubt I will go back again.

Great Easter Sunday lunch with the family - a lovely, relaxed and family friendly pub, with Easter egg hunts and crafts for the kids. Food was generally very good for the in particular the very generous roast dinners. We’ll be back again very soon.

Very disappointing. Very cold inside and when we asked if the fire could be lit we were told yes if we did it ourselves! Meat in the steak & kidney pie was tough and full of gristle, pastry very stodgy. Cod goujon sandwich was inedible as fish was cold and looked like a random selection from the bottom of the freezer, didn’t taste fresh. Staff were very young and inexperienced. It was supposed to be a treat for a birthday lunch but it was awful - we went elsewhere for coffee and desserts.

Great find for meeting up with family for a relaxing Saturday lunch. Good to have both the regular menu and the tapas for choice and there was a good selection on both. Good service and weren't rushed at all and the food was great. Nice fire burning in the bar which created a good atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
