Well, what can I say? The food was excellent! Double gate burger? Yes please! And “noggins” are ace and will fix your hangover. Service was good, friendly and attentive - something I look for as an ex-waiter. Would have been nice for some quiet background...More

A return visit,and still good food at a great price. A nice old pub,both inside and out,in a pleasant area. I had A Pork lunch at £10,my friend had Seafood spaghetti at £11. Well presented,and I would recommend both. Will definitely come back again.

Have had two fantastic meals at the Gate this month. The Burns Night meal was excellent as was the entertainment. The Wassailing was also a great evening and again the meal that we had was superb.

Yes there's lots of healthy options to choose from, I took a snap of the menu but can't seem to put on this page for you sorry. Great food, friendly service and a beautiful location.
Would you like to come back and talk to me about why you think my attitude was poor as the lady with you was being very dramatic and very rude towards my staff and myself I like to say you have not decided to tell everyone that we were all mortified by this mistake and I refunded you and appoligised on several occasions and offered you anything else you wanted for free and the three others that came to eat with you clearly enjoyed there chicken burger and two more gate burgers and two buckets of nogging as even the salad garnish were eaten . The man that came to the till to pay appoligised to me and the waitress for the way you and the lady with you were behaving shouting across a full bar with several other families enjoying there visit and the food is no way for people of an older generation to act he looked quite embarrassed paied and even left a small tip
