We were staying at a local hotel and I found the Tollgate on line within a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We ate there 3 nights in a row (the total of our stay) and the menu was extensive and we were spoiled for choice. My husband particularly enjoyed the pork burger - he had it twice!!

This is a very popular place for drinks or food. The menu is based on the standard Greene King menu but with some daily specials. It is not fine dining but straightforward pub grub with all the popular items. Reservation is advisable. There is a large secure garden ideal for children, and children are well catered for. Plenty of off... More

Food was very good, enjoyed by all. Service not great...very stingy with ketchup! Had to ask for more several times as lots of kids in our party. Kids puddings ordered with meals as instructed but not brought out, so had to remind them. But nice family meal over all and the food is what counts.
