See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Reopened in May 2015 after being closed for sometime, the Gatekeeper was previously called the New Inn. Originally two 15th century cottages the building was converted to a pub in the 18th century. The pub has an interesting menu and there are four rotating beers usually including at least one from Kent and three ciders. Situated close to the channel tunnel, it is worthy of your last or first pint or meal when visiting the continent. May close early on quiet evenings or keep open if busy.
