Had to sit downstairs on a Friday night. Really noisy. Rowdy almost, though before seven. The Waldorf with Halloumi starter was overdressed and greasy. And the halloumi tasted of blue cheese. Also it is a bad idea, Waldorf doesn't work with halloumi. Wished I hadn't trusted the chef, Didn't eat it in the end. I have been disappointed by vegetarian... More

We were two mates who hadn't met in 35 years. We needed somewhere with great range of beers, good food and a relaxed vibe so we could catch up at leisure. The Old Gate fitted the bill very well.

Hi, Thnaks for the review. Apologies that you found a hair in your food. Unfortunately these things do happen from time to time despite our best efforts. I'm sorry that it wasn't rectified in a manner which you deemed sufficient. I will have a chat with the other managers to make sure that customers go away having had any problems... More

I've been to Old Gate plenty of times before and had good service and good food, but I was really disappointed with the service from one of the staff at lunch yesterday. We asked for a table for four people plus a high chair, and we're shown to a table for four. I asked if their high chairs had trays... More

Visited here many times with friends and family and never disappointed. Lovely hearty food any time of the day and a great selection of beers. The log burners are great to huddle around on a cold winters day. Dogs are welcome here too.

Hi, Many thanks for the great review. Hopefully, we won't need to use the log burners for a while if the weather improves, but I'm sure nobody will complain too much about that. Either way we look forward to seeing you again very soon. Regards, Sam Booth, General Manager. More
