Spent the afternoon in Hebden Bridge for our parents 50th wedding anniversary and finished with drinks and a meal at The Old Gate.
The food was outstanding! Great flavours, fresh produce and good portions.
I would definitely recommend the steak and ale pie or the seabass!
They offer a set menu at a very good price, of 2 or 3 courses, as well as a full menu and chef specials.

The service at the bar downstairs and in the restaurant upstairs was very good. They offer a wide range of drinks and staff were knowledgeable about them.
The décor throughout is eye-catching and clean. We will definitely be back!

Delicious food. Staff very helpful and efficient. Great place with interesting decor. We had 3 children in the party and they interacted with them and served their food early as asked. The only slight issue with the children's menu is they only offer ice cream as deserts. The eldest boy does not like ice cream and paying £6 for an adult desert is too much. Overall we had a great time and would return.

I visited The Old Gate with my wife on a Sunday afternoon and was planning to have a bite to eat.There was a very nice seating area outside and nice and cosey inside with a good range of real ales.
The menu looked nice with plenty of choice and the Sunday lunch looked very good.
What put me off eating was the number of dogs inside the pub, actually in the eating area. They were under the tables and were being fed titbits by their owners. Can't see how this can be hygienic where food is being served. Plus the dogs set off my allergies so we were forced to go elsewhere.

Hi,

Thanks for the review of the fact we are a dog friendly establishment, along with 95% of Hebden Bridge businesses. In a town which welcomes many walkers, that have been enjoying our many rural expeditions, we feel that this is a necessary business decision. We welcome all dogs providing they are kept on a lead, & they are not allowed on the furniture. This helps ensure that, providing you don't touch a dog yourself, without washing your hands afterwards, there should be minimal risk of any hygiene issues.

However, we only welcome dogs into the bar area, where the bar menu is served.
Dogs are not allowed into the restaurant, where the full menu is available. Therefore, customers who are not as comfortable around canines, or, who like yourself have allergies, can eat in comfort away from our furry friends.

Hopefully, you will revisit us soon, and dine in our restaurant to enjoy our food. I assure you that the Sunday lunch (and all our food), is as good as it looked.

Regards,
Sam Booth,
General Manager.

We had a wonderful meal during our weekend break in Hebden Bridge. We had not booked a table and despite it being a busy Friday night, they accommodated us with no fuss and a lovely friendly attitude. Service was very attentive by all staff and food was delicious. We liked the decor - lots of colour and originality. Highly recommend.
