    Lovely place. Great selection of food. Only downside is that dome of it felt just warmed up rather than fresh. But was fine to eat. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

    The food was good but could of been hotter. Service was good, but there was speakers absolutely everywhere and the music way too loud, it really spoilt the ambience. Music is supposed to be back ground allowing customers to chat, the music was hard to speak over. Had to ask them to turn it down.

    Very pleasant and comfortable atmosphere with friendly staff. Food arrived on time and hot. Had steak which was cooked as I asked but minimal garnish to accompany the steak.

    I had a hot sandwich which wasn’t hot. Instead of cooking it again it was reheated in the microwave- so instead of being toasted sandwich it was soggy.

    The Old Gate Inn improves every time we visit. Everything makes our eating and drinking there most pleasurable. For us the fact they’re also exceptionally dog friendly. We just do not visit pubs that don’t allow dogs in the eating areas.

    The tub seats and very small table against the wall were very restrictive, especially as we had our well behaved dog with us. Not very comfortable. Excellent meal and service.

    We had a fabulous three-course meal at this pub. Food was delicious and menu varied. We were well attended without being intruded upon. We were very happy with the gin choices, choosing an incredibly refreshing ‘grapefruit’ gin. The whole place was clean and welcoming.

    This was our first meal out since last November due to the lockdown so was extra special for us both. Always love coming to this restaurant both for the venue itself which is cozy, the location, the staff always polite and friendly and most of all the delicious food!

    Very nice place, good atmosphere and friendly staff members happy to help and making sure you are fine. Ordered vegan burger, pizza and fish and chips, everything was delicious. Non alcoholic cider was topic!
