Went for lunch today. The pub is very nice and cosy, can't fault the ambiance in there. We ordered 2 tex mex. I have been having these for 20 years and always enjoyed them. I was a little disappointed this time. The size of the one steak wasn't too bad but the other one was just 2 very small pieces.... More

We booked in advance and paid a deposit for Valentines Night (There were only 6 other Diners) and were seated in the Conservatory. The room was warm and cosy despite the large expanse of glass overlooking the vehicular entrance. The welcome at the bar was a little lukewarm but positive once we were seated. Drinks orders were taken quickly. We... More

I have frequented The gate for over 30 years. I remember being enchanted by its unique and individual menu and atmosphere in the late 1908's. My original favorites such as the Steak Creole and Bluey's Curry (where you got a complimentary can of Australian beer included) have long gone, but The Gate has been there for birthdays, promotions, Christmases on...

We ate here on a Monday Mexican night, it was our first visit to the Gate after reading and hearing great reviews. One of us ordered the two course set menu, and the other ordered from the main menu. Starters were pulled pork tacos and the chicken quesadilla, mains were the tex mex steak and the rack of ribs. All... More

Had an hours wait got the wrong drink but did the polite thing and kept it, food was nothing special, my daughter had an issue on her second visit and the so called manager couldn't be bothered to deal with the issue, then was useless on the phone to myself and very rude, clearly couldn't manage a pub and has...

Hi Vicky, Thank you for taking the time to write your review, albeit on clearly biased claims. It is quite obvious that your review is a disgruntled re-review/response to your daughter's visit with us several weeks ago, since which I have addressed in my response along with a twenty minute telephone call from your daughter's boyfriend this week. I find... More

Unfortunately, the very last time I visited the restaurant for my favourite dish of all time, the Tex-Mex, I was quite alarmed and disappointed at the standard of the meal. The chilli was nowhere near as perfect as before and the steak smaller in size. I know this is a family run pub with the son taking over from his... More

This place does the best blackened steak with a great choice of sides including an amazing Stilton sauce. Great Mexican selection but not forgetting your good old English pub meal classics Loved the place for many years and will keep going Well done to the family run pub and all the staff

Back again for lunch, the Gate really does the best lunch for miles around!Just try the Sloppy Joe for a start...My daughter came all the way from Reading just for lunch (and hopefully to see us as well) We regularly visit for the Mexican and American nights, really worth a visit, every time.

Thank ClaudeandDenise
