Graham Coombs left this review about The West Gate

A slightly peculiar town pub with a rather mismatched interior. I don't know what the designers were aiming at but they missed. Despite lots of signs claiming sports screens, there was not a lot of sport going on; the promised air conditioning was not working; and the upstairs bar was shut. Having said that, the place was not actually unpleasant and seemed to have a good trade in shoppers. Ales on were GK IPA and Tribute, which was drinkable.

Well described by others, below, this busy Greene King town pub feels a bit like a Wetherspoon but without the sophistication. Two large banks of megakeg taps frame an array of handpumps dispensing Hardy’s and Hanson’s Rock On, Wadworth’s 6X, Old Mulled Hen and Tribute, plus a pump with a reversed GK IPA clip and a dry one. The beers were awful, badly kept and served too cold, while the food was the usual GK factory produced stuff. Children were roaming freely, congregating at the bar and screaming loudly. The staff were apathetic, and the atmosphere was depressing. Not looking to revisit any time soon.

After a morning spent looking around the nearby Roman Baths, we decided to give this gastro style pub a try for a spot of lunch. The interior is very spacious, with some expensive looking tables and chairs in the front area and high tables and stools to the rear near the long, curved bar counter. There seemed to be an upstairs area as well, but I didn't venture up there to explore. The wooden floors, pastel shaded walls and roman themed decor fit in nicely with the gastro look the pub is going for.
The food was not the cheapest but my steak sandwich was pretty good. There was just the one ale on, perhaps as a result of high consumption over the New Year's weekend, but the Box Steam Dark Box (£3.20) was in great shape. An Abbey Bellringer clip was turned. The pub's speciality seems to be foreign beers, with a very good selection on draught including, Kirin, Grolsch, Krombacher, Krombacher Weizen, Duval Green and Paulaner. Bottled beer was well represented and included Brooklyn Lager and Sierra Nevada Pale. I also spotted some real cider including one called Sheep Dip. We were treated to table service, which came as a bit of a surprise and I thought the staff were very helpful and attentive.
I wasn't really expecting a great deal from this place, but I thought it was pretty good at what it sets out to do and it certainly served its purpose for us.
