Join us for drinks

With our perfect location, great range of beers, spirits, cask ales and fine wine The Gateway is a popular destination for drinks out with friends and family

The bar

Whether you are calling in after a walk in the hills or dressing up for an evening out you are very welcome at the gateway for drinks. We have worked hard to pick a great range of interesting and delicious drinks to tantalise the taste buds which we are sure you will enjoy. Tables available in the bar, lounge and pub areas as well as outside.


The terrace

We have created three fantastic outdoor terrace areas which are perfect for enjoying the views, relaxing in the sun or drinking and dining al fresco. With plenty of parking and easy to get to off the A591 at plumgarths roundabout the gateway is the number one choice for sunny lake district days.

Log fires

There is nothing better than getting cozy next to a log fire in the evening or on a winters day. At the gateway we like to keep that traditional atmosphere going. After a day exploring the lakes or walking out in the hills why not relax and enjoy a drink next to our roaring fires.
