We had a lovely meal at this pub recently. The staff was very friendly and accomodating to our requests. The food was very good and freshly cooked. The owner had only recently taken over and they were doing everything they could to ensure that we had a very pleasant evening. Would certainly go back again when we are next in the area.

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!!

We stayed here by chance in April 2012. Loved the friendly approach of the staff, the food was really good and reasonably priced. The Wainwright beer was excellent and could have a choice of a small or a large glass of wine. Breakfast was very filling and lasted us most of the day. We went back in September on our way to Glasgow and found it was booked out but we did managed to stay for dinner. The staff recognised us and were interested in our travels. I would definitely want to stay here again.

Really could not fault this hotel , the staff are always happy to help , well organised and enthusiastic  . The food was very tasty and traditional but with a modern twist and the room we stayed in was cosy ,but spacious . We were really flabbergasted to see the standard of cleaning , it was spotless ! And was a improvement to the premiere inn just down the road. My favourite part was sitting in the garden reading a book with a glass of wine , watching the kids play footie and enjoying the fresh air.

I really wish our family had discovered this little gem earlier as some of the other hotels in kendal are over priced and unwelcoming to  large family's such as ours . With just a small drive into kendal , the gateway was practical and i would recommend it to anyone.
