We were staying in a cottage in the Village of Lower Brailes and decided we could not be bothered to cook on Tuesday evening so as per recommendation s in the folder we rang through our order. We were given a time when they would be ready and two of the party walked down 3, minutes to the pub. The... More

We were told that the fish and chips at this restaurant were legendary. We had a drink in the gardens before going inside for our meal of haddock chips and peas. The fish was beautifully cooked but the chips were not very good, looking like frozen chips. If the chips had been better the meal would have been excellent. The... More

Having made the mistake of trying another local pub, I have to say The Gate and hail all who frequent it. Great Landlord, the best Hooky beer I know, great food and good value, great garden, where Ian grows his own for Anne in the kitchen, just sweet!

We stayed in a holiday let in Upper Brailes and found the Gate was a pleasant stroll down the hill. The landlord and landlady were very welcoming, even though we arrived late on a Monday evening when they were about to sit down to their dinner. The Hook Norton beers were well-kept and included an interesting special anniversary brew in... More

Had a lovely weekend at The Gate Inn. Rooms are very good and the meal in the evening was good. Breakfast you could have hot or cold, very good. Had a very pleasant time. Will be going again.

Staying in the area, this pub was recommended by the cottage owners so we nipped in. Lovely, tender steaks, a warm welcome, friendly locals and quick service. We have rebooked for Thursday.

Just popped in on the off chance for a lunchtime pint of Hook Norton as on holiday in the area for a few days. Met Ian the landlord who was very friendly and welcoming. The front bar was full of diners tucking in to amazing portions of fish and chips. Found out that there had just been a delivery that... More

Excellent fish and chips one night and a very tasty homemade burger the other. Service was excellent and what a delight to find the owners very friendly and who took... More

Booked in advance and were hopeful when we saw the car park was full. Goodness knows where they all were as the pub was empty.. The menu was so limited we struggled to find something we all wanted. When the food arrived the veg was in cold serving dishes and was undercooked and bland. There was nothing special at all.... More
