Very nice standard type tandoori food with a good range, all the old favourites. Service was a bit haphazard which is why they drop the fifth star. Popular with locals. Attached to a pub. Plenty of tables so you won't usually need to book.

The Hatch gate Inn is a XV1th century Inn situated in the teeny tiny Burghfield Village with its sweet central green and surrounding common land. Our pub has been tastefully restored with some charming new features and original old ones with lots of character, oak beams and a large open inglenook fireplace with original artefacts. It is a pub that welcomes everybody, with a large garden, ample parking and an enclosed play area for younger children. For sports fans we have TV in the Sports Bar (we are a member of the London Irish Supporters Club). Sample our impeccable range of wines and speciality beers, and our equally exquisite taste in music, and join the locals .Our delicious seasonal menu embraces homely, heart warming freshly cooked pub food. Relax with a pint and a Sandwich, or chill at the weekend with a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings .
