The Crow & Gate has the charming ambience of an English pub for sure. We've had good and not so good experiences at this restaurant. We've had no outstanding experiences. On our first visit, we didn't realize that customers are required to order at the...More

We have been to the Crow and Gate many times, and our latest visit was right up to snuff. It is as close as one can get to a traditional English village pub - and NO sports TVs! A roaring fire welcomes you. They did...More

It is adult only and I do believe it is walker friendly.. The parking lot is level and the entrance to the pub is along an attractive pathway which is level.
