The Gatehouse has it all....... great menu, massive drink selection including craft lager, cider and ales. And also friendly and helpful staff that welcome you to stay and have a good evening. Nights such as quiz night and rock and roll bingo are brilliant nights out.

I always enjoy my time in the gatehouse as it has good music and atmosphere on a saturday night. You can usually find somewhere to sit aswell. The cocktail list is great and is something for everyone. Even the virgin daiquiri is lovely for when you are driving. It has definitely improved since changing from The Slug and Lettuce and...

Really enjoyed the Tonbridge Beer tasting. Informative, interesting, great beers and good company. We eat here fairly regularly too and the food is good. I love the tapas.

Came for late lunch. They always have 4 ales on tap, 1 at least seems to constantly rotate. Up to 10 craft beers/ciders. Lovely brains bitter and camden pale ale. Had the tapas plates and swet potatoe fries. All were very good especially the croquettes. Have had dinners before which were decent.
