The Upper Level of our restaurant (with the Gate Room in the background)
The main restaurant has a 'Lower level' with three tables (suitable for wheel-chair access directly from the bar). An Upper Level normally offers space for about 28-30 diners in a variety of configurations and table sizes. 2 - 6 diners per table. The configuration can be changed to accommodate larger parties if and when necessary.
The Gate Room offers a cosy private dining option for up to 10 diners. (There is no charge for this private space if the booking if for 8 diners or more. If you'd like to book the Gate Room for 7 diners of less, we add is a small charge of £12 to your bill)
The Gate Room set for 7 diners
The Extended Restaurant caters for a further 50 diners with flexible seating arrangements from 2 - 6 diners. Again, tables can be combined to form table setting for larger parties. This section of the Gate can be separated for private function.
We are a Dog Friendly pub. We welcome well-behaved dogs in our bar area (not in the restaurant) so long as they remain on their lead and off the furniture. (Dog owners can therefore enjoy a meal in the bar in the company of their dog.)

The Lounge Bar
Summer Outdoor Facilities include two patio areas with garden furniture and parasols. The area to the left of the front door (as you enter) will be set aside for smokers and casual drinks. The area to the right of the front door (which is accessible by steps near the front door and from the restaurant door) will offer full restaurant service facilities (assuming that we actually get a summer in 2013)
