Staying in the area, this pub was recommended by the cottage owners so we nipped in. Lovely, tender steaks, a warm welcome, friendly locals and quick service. We have rebooked for Thursday.

Just popped in on the off chance for a lunchtime pint of Hook Norton as on holiday in the area for a few days. Met Ian the landlord who was very friendly and welcoming. The front bar was full of diners tucking in to amazing portions of fish and chips. Found out that there had just been a delivery that day of freshly caught fish from Grimsby and this is one of the specialities at the Gate. Decided to go back for supper and enjoyed fantastic fish and chips - also tempting were the mussels and the home made pasta arrabiata. With such a warm atmosphere created by the regulars at the bar, the excellent service, good value, and the great choice of beers and ales we had to go back the next evening for second portions. I was very surprised speaking to Ian and Anne that they have only been running the Gate for a couple of years as they are both naturals. The Gate may be a bit off the beaten track for some, but well worth a visit.

Stayed here while on business in the area and was delighted to be shown to a well maintained room and a very comfortable bed. Ate in the restaurant both nights. Excellent fish and chips one night and a very tasty homemade burger the other.

Service was excellent and what a delight to find the owners very friendly and who took the time to make me feel welcome.

Will definitely stay here again if in the area

Booked in advance and were hopeful when we saw the car park was full. Goodness knows where they all were as the pub was empty.. The menu was so limited we struggled to find something we all wanted. When the food arrived the veg was in cold serving dishes and was undercooked and bland. There was nothing special at all. When it came to dessert the choice was underwhelming to say the least and was we did have was not worth the wait. Overall i would say overpriced as well. In hindsight i wish we had gone a mile up the road where we had eaten before and knew the standard was excellent.
