Gate Inn Boyden Gate Beer Garden

What our customers have said on TripAdvisor

It was my second visit to the Gate Inn we found it by mistake in May but last Thursday I arranged for a group of Friends of Folkestone Museum to visit for lunch and also discovered their newly decorated dining room which was very pleasant. There were 19 of us with most having different freshly cooked meals that were all brought out at the same time and everyone complimented us on our choice of venue. Nice helpful pleasant staff and will definitely visit again when in the area.

Love this pub, the owners are such characters. Never a bad meal here and happy to see the pub thriving again. My partner and I have visited this pub together for years, me as a child before that with parents. Hidden gem in the middle of the countryside, beautiful settings and food is all homemade


I have lived close to The Gate Inn for many years, used to visit it regularly and consider it to be my 'local'. However in the last few years the welcome and homely feel has been missing and I have resorted to going elsewhere. Now, since the arrival of new landlords, Dan and Alice, it has reverted to being the friendly, comfortable pub I have missed and I am enjoying being back, as are many other past-time regulars, and I look forward to seeing the pub flourish again. I love the sunny country garden with use of an outside bar, the live music on occasions, the reasonably priced pub menu (I want to be able to eat here regularly so am glad that you have avoided the overpriced gastro pub route - there are plenty of those not far away - in favour of hearty, traditional, home-cooked pub meals), the choice and availability of drinks and especially the welcoming, friendly staff. Thank you!

The Gate Inn has become a great pub and restaurant once again. The food is all prepared to perfection and served by very friendly and helpful staff. A great pub to drop into on a hot sunny day or any day! Love the chicken burger guys, it was really good.
