I have under old management have had some pretty dire experiences at the gate (as well as good). But as of the writing of this review 20.03.2015 the pub service has very much improved. We always request table 24 which they do without any issues, the staff are friendly and you are able to have a laugh with them. The... More

We went to the Gate at Osbaston on Friday 13th, and ordered a beef lasagne and the Beef in ale pie. When the meal arrived we were both pleasantly surprised, the double salad filled the plate, and the beef and ale pie was a large portion. We both thought that the order had been taken off the actual main menu... More

They could not do enough for us and made us feel very special. There was no pressure and the atmosphere was chilled but efficient, great food, great staff made... More

We haven't visited this place in years so it was nice to come back and enjoy tasty food at a friendly place. My only suggestions would be to replace the wood chopping boards (burger served upon) as they looked as though they'd had better days. Also, a few people were struggling with the steps outside. I pointed out a ramp... More
