Great food and drink. The atmosphere is magical in the winter with two roaring fires. Be patient as it very popular and you may have to wait for a table. Well worth your trouble.

Typical English style pub with ok food. Good choice of English beer and food. Quite busy at lunch time and you need to stand in line to order food and pay at the same time. Service could be slow at times.

We love this quaint English pub! The portions are generous, the food is always fresh and delicious; and I must say that the Berry Pies (seasonal) are to die for!!! Also highly recommended is the Mac & Cheese (with a hint of curry - yum),...More

We were having a treat at the Old Town Bakery in Ladysmith and found out from a couple of locals about the Crow and Gate. We drove there in the dark by following GPS and found the place seemingly out in the middle of nowhere....More

It is adult only and I do believe it is walker friendly.. The parking lot is level and the entrance to the pub is along an attractive pathway which is level.
