Visited the Hatch Gate on Thursday evening at around 7.30 to have a drink and a little bit of food on the way home. After reading the 'today's specials' board asked if we could order some nachos and chips. We were told they were far too busy to cook anything other than Indian food. The fact that there were plenty... More

The Sunday buffet is brilliant, really cheap and yet so tasty. It was about £8 or £9 a head for the meal plus the extra at normal pub prices for drinks. This meal was far superior to other buffet style restaurants locally, granted this is just indian food but there is so much selection you cant really feel youve missed... More

Service was superb. Friendly waiters. All courses served promptly and were 'hot'. We all had the English menu and it was cooked by Linda who has served us well over the past 5 years. Surprisingly, despite our large number in the party, we were all served pretty well as one. For my part the apple crumble was oh so much... More

wish I had tried this earlier, we had driven past on many occasions and decided to give it a go - the staff were friendly and the food fantastic, also because it's a pub you can have a proper pint of beer if you don't want the usual choice of lagers, this is now our local Indian restaurant of choice.

Basic & typical British Indian oily food. Rude staff. Tried to overcharge me twice. Would not return.

The Hatch gate Inn is a XV1th century Inn situated in the teeny tiny Burghfield Village with its sweet central green and surrounding common land. Our pub has been tastefully restored with some charming new features and original old ones with lots of character, oak beams and a large open inglenook fireplace with original artefacts. It is a pub that welcomes everybody, with a large garden, ample parking and an enclosed play area for younger children. For sports fans we have TV in the Sports Bar (we are a member of the London Irish Supporters Club). Sample our impeccable range of wines and speciality beers, and our equally exquisite taste in music, and join the locals .Our delicious seasonal menu embraces homely, heart warming freshly cooked pub food. Relax with a pint and a Sandwich, or chill at the weekend with a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings .
