We were staying at The Ramblers Rest across the road and decided one evening to eat here. Booking is advised as it does get very busy. There was a lovely fire roaring in the wood stove and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. The Landlord is quite a character and enjoys chatting to his customers, but not in an intrusive...

A very warm welcome with friendly staff. The pub has a very warm feel to it, with an eclectic mix of items all over. The menu has a good and varied selection, cooked to your liking. The steaks are very tasty (fillet and T-bone) with decent portion sizes. Well worth a visit.

This pub was recommended in the cottage we stayed in. To look at, the pub is nothing special, but the steak was excellent. The other food looked great too, but the T-bone could not be faulted. Lovely area for a walk and views too, and the pub had a fire and a cosy feel.

Dropped in for a quick drink and what a pleasant surprise . A little larger inside than the out side impression. The place was full of people enjoying their meals and not a spare table . So booking is advised. Great pint of black sheep. Land lord a jolly friendly chap as was the young woman serving behind the bar.... More

Six of us went to the Gait Inn after looking it up in the directory of restaurants at the KP Club where we were staying for the week. The steaks are a must to try, flavoursome and cooked to perfection and with generous helpings of onion rings, chips, peas and mushrooms! The others in our party that tried other dishes... More

The beef comes from cows that are in a field about 1 mile away so most definitely 'local' We had medium fillet which was perfectly cooked, it came with all the trimmings and given we had the Yorkshire pudding with onion gravy starter then absolutely no room for dessert! Good beer on tap too so worth a visit if you're... More

This is a very old pub in a very small village near Pocklington . On the edge of the wolds. It does such good Sunday lunches that booking is essential . Definitely worth a visit.

Had an unbelvable meal at The Gait last night. started off with a couple of pints, followed by yorkshire puddings for starter, And an excellent rump steak and chips for main! Will 110% return, a little hidden gem just outside of Pocklington

I,ve visited this place for over 30 years. It doesn't change much. Went again today for a beer at lunchtime. Unique, interesting, old fashioned friendly and good beer too! I'll keep going there!
