We spent another weekend at the Gate. It does what it says on the tin. Total relaxation, great landlord and landlady, very welcoming. Quiet, peaceful and a great get away from a London. Rooms are clean and for us that's the main thing. Don't care if there is a noise from loo or a bit if peeling paint, it's still...

We stayed for one night on our way to a conference. Landlord & landlady welcoming. As we arrived we saw chickens cooking in the rotisserie and decided to have that for our evening meal - excellent. Room clean & excellent shower

We stayed as part of a break with friends we had a gin tasting booked and the landlord very kindly offered to drive us to the distillery about 3 miles away and pick us up after which we really appreciated. We ate there on the night even though it was a Monday and it was meals for residents only the...

Stayed for 2 nights at The Gate for a family birthday. The room was £90 per night and for the money, it was extremely poor value. The room was shabby, no ventilation in the bathroom leading to condensation causing mildew. Paint peeling from bathroom ceiling and every time a tap was turned on, or the toilet flushed, the saniflow masticator...

My partner and I, with one set of parents in tow, had a warming evening meal (next to roaring fire) and a lovely welcome to what is a very hospitable and classic pub come BnB. Lovely beer, warm rooms and comfy beds.

The warm and accommodating Landlord and Landlady made us and our family very welcome. Excellent choice of ales, all of which were sampled! Food was delicious and plentiful, both in the evening and at breakfast and the service was just right. Good value for money, we would definitely stay again and will recommend this friendly Inn.

Great hotel with first class food and drinks. Stopped over on a recent business trip and had a very comfortable stay. Could not fault this hotel one little bit. The only minus was the patchy wifi, but this would not put me off returning.

We stayed two nights whilst travelling from Dorset to Derbyshire and were delighted to find a pub enroute where we could stay with our dog. The location was perfect and very quiet. Ian and Ann were welcoming and on our second night we had a fantastic, authentic Thai curry for dinner with Dylan, a lovely local canine companion enviously watching...

Visited The Gate while staying in Brailes, Lovely food, and great beer just how a good pub should be. Landlord very accommodating and made room for us to eat even though we had not booked. There was a good selection of beer and it was well kept. We will return when next in the area.

Just returned from a 2 night break as we were in the area to tour the Cotswold Distillery just under 3 miles away. Great welcome from Ian and Ann whose hospitality carried on throughout our stay. Quirky homely bedroom with everything you need. Lovely home cooked food (especially the fresh fish on Tuesday evening), what a treat!! Locals very friendly,...
