The Gate, Bricket Wood

Hmm an ok pub prob best described as a blokes pub centred largely around the dart board and a bit clicky !! Never seen any food served as thats in another area and its not a beer lovers mecca really either. Football usually on in the main bar.

The landlady looks/sounds a bit fierce and the least said about her complete goon other half the better !

Having said that with the Fox and Hounds closed down and The Old Fox deserted every night I'm afraid you're now blessed with choice in this area!

Maybe it just wasn't my day but after being driven to the edge of suicide in The Red Lion Yardley Hastings - I popped in here looking for some life but there was even less. Think gods waiting room and you've kind of got this place sussed.

Had a pint of Winter Warmer which was bordering on undrinkable - still ever the optimist we sat down in very depressing surroundings in desperate need of a makeover. Kind of had a characterless northern B&B feel to it. However before my life ebbed away we decided to quit while we were ahead ie alive, and headed for the car.

Clearly the demise of the village pub is well under way as again apart from 4 coffin dodgers loitering by the door there was not a soul in here. Green Man over the road a better bet !

Hmmm went in on a Saturday lunch and the place was completely dead apart from one chap that managed to conduct a conversation for what seemed like years on the subject of an order for wood !!

Not the friendliest of welcome (how difficult is it to say thanks when giving you your change??).

Had a bite to eat - a small aubergine bake dish weighed in at NINE quid !! Quite nice but certainly not value for money

With suicidal music playing in the background, had just the one pint and left (leaving no-one in there), this was 1:30 on a Saturday and headed back to my car feeling well depressed. Surprisingly I won't be back as I like a bit of character or even life in my pubs !

Oh and closed all day Monday !!
