Three of us had a break from working and went for lunch at the Gate. The food selection was more than adequate and ditto the beer. Sat in the sun in the garden and had a lovely relaxed experience. We all had different sandwiches and were more than happy with both the quality and portion size. The landlord served us... More

Came in here looking for another pub. Saw a bloke on the car park and asked what the food was like - he said fantastic. If turned out to be the landlord but it didnt disapoint at all! I had a chicken ceaser salad, my partner a prawn salad - both were massive! 35 quid for the two of us... More

Never disappoints food is always excellent and surroundings are lovely, staff are always informed and very courteous, only minor gripe is the private wine collection which is well overpriced. Stick to the main wine list and you'll be ok

Thank you for the great review! I will review the Private Collection prices ASAP. I think the problem is that when I buy just a couple of bottles from independent suppliers I get charged top whack. Rest assured I will look into it! Kevin, Gail & the gang More

Having been a big fan of this pub and its homemade food over the years and visiting a few weeks ago and having a fabulous meal sitting outside in sunshine was excited to take my son for a going away meal! It was a disaster from start to finish. Normally there is a special deal before 7 pm so I... More

Sincere apologies for your disappointment on your last visit. During the last month I have been renovating the kitchen which has included changing the whole layout. This has meant operating a slightly condensed menu and this last week a complete closure of the kitchen midweek. There have been notices pinned up informing customers of this and all bookings have been... More

Had a really nice meal however it took over an hour for the starters to come. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but due to the location of the old hate we had to pre book a taxi. We wrongly thought that just over two hours would be enough to enjoy a pub meal. The food was great but we... More

Met up with friends at this pub I had not been to before, not surprised as tucked away down some very narrow lanes. But I am glad I went. The evening was fine so we had drinks and starters out in the garden and went into the small but quaint dining room for our mains. The main course had to... More

Thank you for a great review! The "Cheerful landlord" bit made me smile! I was a bit confused at first but yes, I too have experienced the 'chain pub' landlords who are too busy stressing over reports, targets and meetings about meetings about memo's.

Recently attended this quaint country pub as part of our gastro tour. Received a very warm welcome from both the landlord and his staff. Pub had a nice feel about it and an excellent choice on the menu. We ordered various meat and fish dishes which was well presented and served in good time. There was also a good choice... More

Apologies we didn't quite hit the mark for you guys. I am a little surprised you found the lamb and fish bland. The lamb shanks we had on that day came from a very well respected butchers in Craven Arms who are the only Rare Breed Accredited butchers in Shropshire. Likewise, all of our fish comes in fresh daily from... More

Service was friendly, meal was OK apart from the Creme Brulee dessert which was probably the worst I have ever tried. This pub used to be excellent, we have been many times over the years but I'm sorry to say the last couple of times I've been disappointed.

Sorry to hear your disappointment, especially with our Creme Brûlée. This is one of our most popular puddings which we make in batches. Would really appreciate your comments as to how it was so bad so that we can put it right as if yours was bad then so we're all the others. Please feel free to ring or email... More

I have recently been to the Old Gate for Sunday lunch. The food was good quality with good service. We went as a family and I can highly recommend that dessert menu. It was disappointing that there was only 1 dish for my vegetarian wife. The chef did create a pasta dish for her which was lovely.

A tad confused here to be honest?! A 4 star review stating that we created a special dish for your vegetarian wife but with a title stating "no good for vegetarians"? All of our food is freshly prepared to order and as we have to cater for the majority, meat and fish is where our priorities lie. We can offer... More
