Every time I come here the food is excellent and the beer is cold. The side of potato salad has to be the best around and the beer dip is awesome. Sitting outside in the summer is great, tables have sun and shade. Such a relaxing atmosphere. If you are visiting from out of town hit up the Cedar farmers... More

There's something about the setting at The Crow and Gate, the rose bower, the ducks in the pond, the pastoral views, that is soothing and inviting, and thoroughly enhances your experience there. For visiting this perennially popular and often crowded English-style pub is certainly an experience, and not one to be missed. Locals and visitors alike cross the same threshold... More

Great choice of beers both import and local craft beer. The food is surprisingly good and the setting on a sunny day is very beautiful and restful. The pan fried oysters are our favourite.

Ever get the urge for a nice pint in an old style english pub. Well, this is the place to go. It's a self service style, so go up to the bar to order your pint and some food. In the summer, you can sit in the nice garden area on picnic tables. Man, now I want a pint!

I went there with my girlfriend and her mum. I honestly don't remember the food being outstanding ( or terrible! ), the staff there is what makes this place memorable. The place looks nice.

Excellent food, all freshly made - our favourite place for lunch. Excellent service, nice toasty fireplaces in the winter and you can sit outside in the summer in the beautiful garden. Reasonable prices, and excellent salads - love the beef dip. We run a B&B and all our guests that we send love it too!

This is a lovely little pub/restaurant. Out in the country in a beautiful setting. Typical little Scottish type pub. In winter they have a lovely fire going, in summer you can eat outside.

Every time I go to Crow and Gate the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is great. I would suggest not going there if you're in a hurry though as service can be quite slow. It is for sure worth the wait!

If you like classic English pub food you'll like this restaurant. Treat yourself to a ploughman's lunch and a great beer.
