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

More than 200 years old, this classic country pub has a main bar with a central log fire, tiled floors, and scrubbed wooden tables. A separate restaurant was opened recently in the adjacent old bakery, and has an old oven as a focal point. The lovely garden has a stream, ducks and apple trees. The Gate Acoustic club meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. There is a quiz every Wednesday at 9pm, and a Music Quiz on the last Saturday of the month. The local mummers perform at Christmas. Boxing Day is always special, with mummers and morris dancers at lunchtime.
