We went for a meal with another couple a few nights ago, I had read in the local paper that the gateway had been taken over so i was keen to try it out. We hadnt booked and we arrived about 7pm, there was noone in at that time so we got a table no problem, however when it is so quiet it does make the atmosphere slightly daunting? There was music on, well the radio but i think it could have had a little more, like a CD with background music on. Also I was very cold in the room we were sat in. The menu is small but enough, i chose the goats cheese on a crumpet with a rocket salad and a chilli sauce, it was beautiful, better than expected, i then had the steak and mushroom pie which again was lovely, just could have had a few more chips. Everyone elses meal looked equally as good. The pub is great in a fantastic location and the new owners seem to be doing it up a bit, which is what it needed. I think after a couple of months when they are settled in a but more it will be bettwe, but at the moment it is an ideal pub for a bit of pub grub!!
