I know The Burnt Gate having eaten here often before. I trust the chefs to provide genuine gluten free food. I have never been disappointed. This evening I was able to recommend dishes I had eaten before ( Arancini and Polenta chips as examples). But, we were also treated to new dishes cook by the new chef - Sea Bream... More

We popped into this pub at 2.25pm today for a quick drink (having had a pleasant visit there about 3 years ago) but on arrival we were asked if we'd like food as it stopped being served at 2.30pm. We said that we weren't too hungry so would just have a sandwich to share. The lady serving us suggested we... More

Six of us ate here and I am hesitant about writing this review as we were keen to have a "get-together" so the food was secondary. Unfortunately, two of us had not good eating experiences but we didn't want to send it back or make a fuss.. This means that the pub had no chance to put it right -... More

To answer your points, your starters were bread and oils. The oil and balsamic are served together in small dipping pots and separate by their very nature, oil and vinegar. I cannot understand how you couldn't 'reach' the balsamic, the pot is 3cm deep. I'm sorry if you felt rushed with your starters the waiting staff seem to recollect there... More

After enjoying the delights of the weather, we travelled to this pub after reading about it on this website (and recieving a Certificate of Excellence). We were not disappointed, and certainly lived up to its reputable state. After getting shown to a table very quickly, we ordered and it was soon on the table. The pie was superb, with large... More

The staff in this pub were very friendly and helpful, and went the extra mile to make sure we had a great evening. The atmosphere in the pub was warm and welcoming, and the decor was olde worlde, almost the epitome of an English country pub, set in beautiful countryside. There is good access for wheelchairs and clean modern toilets.... More
