Eating out

There is plenty of choice for places to eat and drink in the local area, from pub grub to fine dining (or stay in and have a private chef cook for you!). Here is a (non-exhaustive!) list of places which we like or guests have recommended, within a radius of approximately 25 miles of Three Gates.

We have noted those that are dog-friendly (which includes the majority of the pubs in this list), and also the phone number, postcode for SatNav, and website address (where available), so you can find further information, book, or find your way. We advise checking opening days/times and you may need to book. Bon appetite!
