Hi, Apologies for the service you received on your recent visit. It is clearly not acceptable to be awkward with someone who is spending their hard earned money with ourselves. I'm not sure why this attitude was given to you when sitting in the restaurant....More

I've lived in Hebden Bridge for well over 3 years and have been accused of spending too much time in Old Gate! But there's an obvious reason why...the food is excellent, both in the bar and restaurant upstairs...the selection of beers is magnificent, and constantly...More

Hi, Thanks for your review of your recent visits. Taking your & others feedback on board over the last few weeks it appears our standards of keeping the toilets clean have slipped over the last few months. We have now implemented a new system, which...More
