See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A small, friendly and welcoming local community pub just south-west of the town centre, the Garden Gate is based within easy walking distance of the train and bus stations. Widely claimed to have been built for Prussian mercenaries based nearby, though this is historically dubious, the Garden Gate is now a focal point for the local community. It has a small single bar serving two distinct drinking areas. There is a separate back room leading to a small partially covered patio and smoking area to the rear. At least 3 and often 4 beers are on tap with Surrey Hills Ranmore, a rare site locally, as the best seller. There is a quiz on Thursday and a music quiz on the first Sunday in the month. Major free to air sports events are occasionally shown. The pub also houses a community defibrillator.
