We love going & enjoy dining in the train carriages. The food was lovely apart from the duck I had which was tough.

Visited the Spotgate Inn after seeing a good number of positive reviews. Can thoroughly recommend. For approx £15 a head you are served a beautiful 3 course home made Sunday lunch. There is a good choice of starters and deserts at very reasonable prices (see photos) with a choice of roasts available for the main course. Meals are presented after... More

Good food, pleasant pub, with dog welcome. We were on holiday locally, and enjoyed our meal on a Friday evening. We would happily go there again.

What a disappointment...we reserved a table for 4 at the Spotgate Inn, specifically requesting a table within the Carriages. My family and I last visited about 2 years ago and remembered it to be a place with delicious food in a bespoke environment...my how things change. The writing was on the wall when we entered the bar area, one of... More

It was my first visit although the rest of my family had all been before. It is a bit off the beaten track but not difficult to find. We ate in a railway carriage which was rather quirky but a nice change from a normal restaurant. Bar area was good (draft Pedigree) and service both at bar and table excellent.... More

If only real rail travel was like the coaches you can fine in..comfortable and with fan food. The beef brisket came served with a multitude of veg including the rarely seen diced swede! Loads to eat served at a relaxed pace. Only negative...the pie could have been warmer but great quality at less than a tenner. Not sure how you... More

Just had Sunday lunch at The Spotgate Inn. Dined in the carriages. Fabulous setting. Six of us, all of us had a fabulous meal. My 100 year old Aunt loved it. Food great and matched by the staff. Will be going back.
