“Early birds get the table!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We hadn't booked but managed to be early enough (6.30-ish) to get a table in the bar.

Good menu, not too pricey and food was really good.

Plenty of parking space.

“Not a place for Train Spotters”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

After reading some of the replies to negative reviews by the Landlord, we knew we just had to visit here when staying only a short distance away. The Cumberland stack was very good and the hummus was delicious. We found the staff pleasant and attentive too. We will be visiting again.

“Friendly staff, good service, great food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Went early with the kids & dog to eat in the bar. The decor may be a little dated but the staff were attentive and efficient. Food arrived freshly prepared in 15 mins. Steak pie was a proper pie and the filling rich and tasty. Jenga chips were lovely too. Kids meals were generous and equally tasty. Will definitely be back.

We have stayed in this are, the last 3 years on the trot, and each time we pay the Outgate a visit. The food is very good, fresh local produce. Nicely presented. Service is very good. Owner is nice and friendly. Reasonably priced as well.

“3 very satisfying meals”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I ate here three evenings and on each occasion left feeling very well satisfied.
We are not talking complicated food or plates assembled for viewing in an art gallery.
We are talking about good well cooked basic grub that looks good on the plate.
I had steak, fish & chips and then gammon steak. Helping were more than sufficient for me (a pensioner) and on each occasion i felt that the chef knew his trade.

My friends were equally well satisfied.

i would go back.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and kind whilst not being intrusive.

The beer is very well kept.
