I've been to The Gatehouse a number of times over the years. It has shut down and reopened more times than I care to remember but I have always been very impressed with the food and service. The restaurant interior has always been nice and that has never changed. Although nobody had any complaints about this last visit, I was... More

Very late reply I know but the whole evening was fantastic. The food was great and we were well looked after by all the staff. The staff were very professional and couldn't do enough to help. Will be returning very soon for another great night.

Absolutely wonderful food, and friendly and efficient service. My mother and I went early on a Wednesday evening, and it was quiet, but it was getting busier by the time we left. I'd advise check opening times with the restaurant before going, as they weren't the same as those advertised on the website. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - the... More

On arrival we were seated in a lounge/ waiting area and given menus to look at after ordering our drinks. Our drinks were brought to us promptly and our food order was taken.

The Gatehouse re-opened early in the year. Not had a meal there yet but they now do a take out service at lunch times and the bacon buns at just £2 a pop are fantastic!
