Came for beer but decided to eat too. Beer doesnt change as much as before as always doom bar and a tonbridge ale on plus other mainstream beers such as wainwrights. Always decent craft but also doesnt change much compared to fuggles. However tapas was lovely especially on a friday night where it became very busy as expected.

Friendly staff, very welcoming! Food got to us within 10 minutes, a check back was done which was very nice! Food was so delicious, I would definitely command this and we will definitely be going again! After a VERY disappointing short visit to the humphrey bean, we are so glad we chose to eat here!!

A lovely welcome as soon as we arrived. The bar staff here have to be the best in town. We arrived after a terrible breakfast attempt at another local hostelry, only to be met by the chef and duty manager. They set about asking what we wanted to eat and set us up a tab so we could go sit... More

Went there for the first time on a Friday evening with a group of friends. It was packed and extremely noisy so there was no possibility of chatting to each other. There was a very long wait for service but our cocktails were amazing.

The Gatehouse has it all....... great menu, massive drink selection including craft lager, cider and ales. And also friendly and helpful staff that welcome you to stay and have a good evening. Nights such as quiz night and rock and roll bingo are brilliant nights out.
