The last time we visited a lot of our favourites had been taken off the then new menu. As a result we didn't end up going back for a couple of years. When looking at places to celebrate a birthday this came up and we decided to give it another go; wow think we have been missing out. A variety... More

I have visited The Spotgate Inn several times with my family, and we are never disappointed! We usually visit on a Sunday and enjoy a delicious traditional Sunday Roast, but last visited on a Saturday and finally got to sample the normal menu. Everything was absolutely delicious, piping hot and promptly served with a smile. Staff are very polite and... More

Been going here now for over 10 years and it is always a pleasure to eat in a very 1930's setting. The restaurant is set inside two ex-Pullman class railway carriages and takes us back to when we went on the Venice Simplon Orient Express. The staff are always pleasant and attentive, the food is well cooked, wholesome, plentiful and... More

This is a lovely countryside Inn- perhaps needing a bit more loving care- but for all that the food is ample and good quality. You can- if you are lucky dine in one of the 1950 railway dining cars at the rear of the pub-there are two. Or there is a further more sedate dining room. The only complaint if... More

We have been here a number of times over the years and had a great honest family meal, however we went as a family of four early Sunday evening and we had a very poor meal.... It's cheap ..... But the quality was very poor..... I really do hope that it was just a bad night.... However I'm not sure... More
