About the Pub

Busy country pub dating from the 1600's. A regular Guide entry, off the beaten track but well worth seeking out. The landlord Kevin has been at the Old Gate Inn since 1988. The bar and restaurant have exposed timbers and open fires and make a welcoming atmosphere. The bar has six handpulls, serving 3 regular and 3 ever changing beers (usually local) including Kevin's own beers and his selection of Somerset ciders. The restaurant has excellent meals on offer which include fresh fish specialities (No meals Sunday evening). Recently refurbished outdoor area is used for BBQ, Music, and Beer & Cider Festivals.

Historic Interest

Referred to both as the Wicket and the Gate, the latter eventually replacing the former. By 1859 the Gate had achieved inn status, permitted to remain open as long as a bed was empty, offering basic accommodation, food, homebrewed ale, and stabling to the lawful traveller. In 1892, John Plimley the younger, defaulted on mortgage repayments and as a consequence the Gate Inn passed to farmer Charles Bannister; who sold on later that year to Wolverhampton maltster and brewer, Charles Hames Chater, he paid 619 pounds Local Magistrates inspected the 'Old' Gate inn, 23rd July 1896 and were satisfied, finding the premises fair and clean, with 3 rooms upstairs, 4 rooms downstairs and stabling for 4 horses. Managed by Albert Pritchard and rated at 13 pounds 2 shillings and 6 pence. In June 1899, Charles Chater sold the Old Gate Inn to Bloxwich brewers J & J Yardley, paying 850 pounds. They merged with South Staffs Breweries, becoming Old Wolverhampton Breweries Ltd, in 1910; selling to Frank Myatt of Wolverhampton in 1920, for 2,000 pounds. Frank Myatt and 94 licensed houses were acquired by the Holt Brewery, Birmingham in 1927, who in turn ware absorbed by Ansell's Brewery, Aston, 1934.
