Our food

Renowned for proper pub fare, The Gate Inn is one of the most popular pubs near Chislet for a high-quality meal out. Favourites on the menu include the doorstop sandwiches (black pudding is loved by regulars), the juicy ‘Gateburger' and a warming sausage hotpot.

Everything is home-made, with dishes changing regularly depending on the produce available. Indeed, a weekly specials board allows our chefs to make the very most of seasonal ingredients, while a special Sunday menu is also available each week alongside the old favourites.

A genuinely popular place for food, booking in advance is highly recommended. Please call us on 01227 860498 (we regret that we're unable to process bookings via email, so please telephone to make your reservation).

For groups of 10 people or more, we ask you to pre-book your food orders - please just give us a call to find out more.

Our drinks

There’s a local look to our line-up of ales and lagers, with an excellent selection of beers from the Shepherd Neame brewery in Faversham, Kent. 

Britain’s oldest brewery, Shepherd Neame produces a range of quintessentially Kentish ales using only the finest ingredients - chalk-filtered mineral water from their artesian well, the finest home-grown malting barley and Kentish hops.

Alongside our beers, which are served in the cellar, straight from the cask or keg, we also have an excellent selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks.
