High indeed in a windswept location on the Cotswold escarpment. Little changed since AW's visit, the bar is pleasant enough and would be quite cosy with the fire lit, but too populated for comfort on our visit, thus we sat alone in the dining room and enjoyed some attractively served Hooky Gold (the other choice was Old) which was a nice drink.

It is, to be honest, all a bit bare-bones scruffy with junk lying around outside, but not offensively so, and fine for those using the campsite. A plus point is it's open all day, a rarity in these parts.

The Gate Hangs High is a country pub that is situated on the corner of a crossroads about a mile north of Hook Norton.
Once inside there was a small oblong shaped room with the bar facing,the room was bare boarded and had a beamed ceiling,the seating was normal tables and chairs,there was a seperate dining area to the left.
The pub is a Hook Norton tied house and there were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Hookey bitter which was very nice drink,the other beers were Old Hookey and Hook Norton Lion.
The pub was fairly busy on our Saturday dinner visit and had a good lively atmosphere.
I quite liked this pub and could have happily whiled away some time here.
