We booked a table on the English side ( Saturday 8th April) and arrived 15 minutes early but they had let it go. Another table was then set away from the restaurant. Our food eventually arrived after 45 minutes. I had ordered a very very very blue steak (this was written on the order docket) but arrived medium to well... More

We went with friends on recommendation and were richly rewarded with tasty high quality Indian (actually Bangladeshi) food. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and generous. We sat in the Indian food half (Burghfield Spices) of the pub but the staff kindly brought the menus from the English food half of the pub for a couple in our party that... More

Came for the English menu as advertised on the interesting website- sadly all disappointing and ended up having an Indian- varied menu but very busy so service was poor...Kept having to go up to where the service was to ask for things including the bill and to pay! Disappointing

We were taken here by friends and had a drink in the homely bar served by friendly staff prior to eating. We moved to the Indian restaurant at the back of the pub and the food was surprisingly good. Freshly prepared and of good quality this is definitely worth a visit.

Visited the Hatch Gate on Thursday evening at around 7.30 to have a drink and a little bit of food on the way home. After reading the 'today's specials' board asked if we could order some nachos and chips. We were told they were far too busy to cook anything other than Indian food. The fact that there were plenty... More

The Sunday buffet is brilliant, really cheap and yet so tasty. It was about £8 or £9 a head for the meal plus the extra at normal pub prices for drinks. This meal was far superior to other buffet style restaurants locally, granted this is just indian food but there is so much selection you cant really feel youve missed... More

The Hatch gate Inn is a XV1th century Inn situated in the teeny tiny Burghfield Village with its sweet central green and surrounding common land. Our pub has been tastefully restored with some charming new features and original old ones with lots of character, oak beams and a large open inglenook fireplace with original artefacts. It is a pub that welcomes everybody, with a large garden, ample parking and an enclosed play area for younger children. For sports fans we have TV in the Sports Bar (we are a member of the London Irish Supporters Club). Sample our impeccable range of wines and speciality beers, and our equally exquisite taste in music, and join the locals .Our delicious seasonal menu embraces homely, heart warming freshly cooked pub food. Relax with a pint and a Sandwich, or chill at the weekend with a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings .
