“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We went for a last minute meal at The Gate last night and all 4 of us agreed that it was the best pub food we had had in a long time. Although the pub was very busy, they still accommodated us and the food didn't take long. All our meals were of excellent quality. The atmosphere was great too!

“Burnt chips and poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Visited for lunch on a busy Sunday. The place has certainly been revamped and looks better for it now the aim should be to get the service to match. Rest of my party enjoyed the food; my chips had an unpleasant burnt taste and were soggy. The polite waitresses seemed pushed to keep up - had asked for a jug of water 3 times before it finally arrived and gave up queing at the bar for a second drink. Has the potential to do well.

“Great food let down by the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed our food but massively let down by the poor service. Our order was taken relatively quickly and there was no wait on our food but nobody checked if everything was ok with our food whether we needed anything else or if we wanted to order more drinks-basic customer service. We twice had to go to the bar to ask for things. To top it off when the waitress bought our extra drinks we asked if we could have a doggy bag and her response was 'ask the waitress when she clears your table'. At that stage we were clearly finished-was it below this member of staff to clear our plates as with us being one of two tables left eating, she wasn't exactly running to do something else. No attention to those eating at all, more interested in those drinkers at the bar unfortunately.
