I always find Marston's '2 for 1' pubs can be a little bit hit and miss on occasions. A group of 6 of us visited The Park Gate Inn in the week - it is always very busy in there so we had to move 2 tables of 4 together (didn't book - I would always recommend booking if there... More

This real ale pub offers great FREE entertainment. I go to Kareoke each fortnight running next on 31st January. Open Mike and other events are on regular. Beer is good and service great.

This is a really good beer pub. If you want food they are happy for you to order in takeaways and eat them in the pub. I think this is an absolutely fantastic idea as it allows the pub to focus on its core business... providing a wide range of well kept beers and ciders. We popped in by chance... More

We love the feel of this pub. The owners are very relaxed, friendly and helpful. My husband loves the great choice of ales. It's even better when some of the locals get together for a folk jamming session.

Okay, my hand was forced. My local is closed for a refit. So I walked to the park gate (2.6 miles) and I liked it. Quite simply, it's an ale drinkers dream. 10 pumps with 7 beers available... on a Tuesday! I only had time to have two but they were well kept and tasted as expected. The added bonus... More

Mum booked a 21st birthday party and it was perfect. No long queues for the bar, we were all seen to straight away with friendly and helpful staff. Dawn set up food in the 2nd bar, the spread was lovely. Nice clean environment where animals and children are welcome Loads of space outside with a marquee and plenty of seating
