The Village Gate
Make a trip to the bustling market town of Wendover and be sure to visit The Village Gate. This delightful pub is well worth seeking out if you’re a fan of enjoying fantastic food and drink in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The interior far outshines that of your average local drinking hole. Sumptuous furnishings in the dining room include velvet chairs, draped curtains and opulent chandeliers, which, paired with high ceilings and exposed beams create a wonderful environment in which to dine. The bar area has a laid-back, cosy feel complete with a log burning fire and leather tub chairs – it’s perfect for relaxing and whiling away the afternoon over a drink with friends.
The food is as impressive as the surrounds, thanks to a kitchen team that produces a range of exceptional dishes made from fine ingredients. Dishes such as pheasant terrine with fig chutney, and seared tuna with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and herb dressing remain firm favourites with diners. Exciting pop-ups take over the kitchen for limited periods, such as Rough & Stuff, who serve mouth-watering burgers that can be enjoyed alongside boozy milkshakes and reasonably priced cocktails. These exciting collaborations keep the kitchen’s offering fresh and exciting, ensuring there’s always a reason to visit The Village Gate.
