This is an unusual restaurant as it consists of two railway carriages, so if you're into trains or would like a different experience this may be for you. The food is excellent pub food quality and the prices are reasonable, combined with good service and good ale this is a place to try out.

Visited the Spotgate Inn last night with family and friends. We booked two tables in the Pullman carriages and had a great time. Wonderful unique atmosphere with first class service and excellent fresh home cooked food. Have been here in the past, in fact maybe eight years ago and loved it then. We really never expected it to be as... More

Booked a Sunday lunch for my daughters birthday, not been before so enjoyed sitting in the very comfortable old carage , All the meals from starters to puddings were excellent and the staff were very pleasant.. not a bad way at all to spend a couple of hours on a chilly Sunday

First time visiting this restaurant with friends for a birthday meal, love the railway carriages, the idea of having a restaurant within these makes it quite special for any occasion. Food excellent, could not fault this and reasonably priced. Staff very pleasant, will certainly be returning again.

The food, was really well prepared, the staff both in the bar and the restaurant were very pleasant and helpful and the atmosphere was perfect, well done. We have dined in the Pullman carriage before and the novelty just doesn't wear off, the presentation and the patina is so nicely done.

The Spotgate is one of our favourite treats! We travel 45 minutes to get there every time! Usually we have a great meal and great customer service. I don't normally moan but as we drove away I felt more and more annoyed. When we arrived staff just seemed to walk past us and it was the 3rd waiter who acknowledged... More

We have made lots of visits to this delightful pub/restaurant because you can always rely on a great meal. We always try to dine in Ursula - a 1928 pullman carriage, because it is cosy and private. Our last visit was for Christmas Fayre this week, and the food was great as always - lovely choices, and our main course... More

Warm food and friendly service. Simply amazing food for the price! A three course meal for 12 pounds! You would expect to pay a lot more for good food such as this! All set in such a lovely setting of old railway carriages The waffles are to die for!
