After booking a table for six people on Friday 11th March, we arrived for our meal at 8:00 pm only to find it was closed!! I had given my contact details, but nobody bothered to inform me that the restaurant was closed for refurbishment! Three of the party were celebrating birthdays, so imagine our disappointment! We had to try to... More

This was our third visit to The Gatehouse in the past year. On each occasion, we have been impressed by the quality of the food and the friendly service. On arrival, we are invited to sit in the bar area, have a drink and choose from the menu. The Specials are always worth looking at - on our latest visit,... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and I was very disappointed with our experience. The restaurant was very quiet I think there were more staff than customers. Also we were told the restaurant would be closing at half 9. Which was a little off putting and felt like we had a time limit on our visit. The staff... More

Tucked away on the canal side it really is a hidden gem. Serving high quality food, there is something for everyone on the menu, the staff are always around if you need them but not intrusive, a very pleasant intimate atmosphere in the evening. very enjoyable and worth a visit either as a couple of a group

We quickly were taken to the table. Starters were tasty and good looking. The mains followed and were really tasty. I will be going... More

This was arranged as a gift by my daughter. We do prefer to eat early so didn't mind being the only ones in the restaurant. There were four members of staff working although they preferred to stand talking instead of taking our drinks orders or bringing menus over. When the food arrived both steaks were over cooked and hard. The... More

Service was excellent even though there were lots of other customers we didn't t have to wait long for delicious food. We all chose different meals and each and everyone was of excellent quality.
