The Gate Hangs High-Review

Terrific staff.

Made us feel very welcome from the outset. The room was very comfortable and both food and pub atmosphere was first class. Excellent value for money.

1st stay and not the last.

I had a short notice appointment near Banbury and found this place via late rooms.

The cost of the room was not high, which does make you wonder what type of place it was going to be. However I found the room clean, and warm after a long drive there. I had my evening meal in the restaurant and was impressed with the linguini. The breakfast was good however the only downside was it started at 8.30. Maybe I could have asked for it to be earlier but didn't as my appointment was not till 9 so thought I had plenty of time.

The only downside of my stay was the mattress was a little old, or well used and had a ridge down the middle where people don't normally sleep. But if you stayed to one side it was OK. The room was fitted out for a disabled person which was OK, apart from in the bathroom. The room is a wet room and the drain for the sink flows across the floor to use the shower drain. Albeit only a short journey from exit to drain hole. Not the best really to stand in your used mouth wash as you shower.

However I would use the pub again I would just ask for a different room.
