Quinno _ left this review about The Gatehouse
A bit of a disappointment, given the write-up in the Good Beer Guide. The exterior, despite a couple of nice architectural (Art Deco?) features is actually quite tatty and dull. The modernised interior is loud and lairy (especially so I thought, given it was a Tuesday afternoon), with belting music competing against a loud TV and then the punters bellowing over both to make themselves heard. Five hand pumps at the bar but only two ales actually on - (Black Sheep and Old Peculiar) the other pumps didn‘t have any indication that they get used much. To be fair my OP was good and was quite cheap - £2.40. There's a sign outside advertising Acorn Brewery beers - but not one was available inside! Basically it's a town centre bar which happens to sell a couple of decent quality beers. I guess if you've got a few minutes to kill waiting for train it's worthwhile but if you're in town for any length of time you'd be better off heading for the Dove or Keel.
