The Hatch Gate Inn
Outstanding food and service. Two menus - English and Indian. Ordered the shrimp from the Indian menu and the lamb from the English - both were fantastic.
Lovely lunch for mother’s day. Staff very attentive, they can’t do enough for you. Will come back
The venue is dingy and unloved. Service was sporadic and lacking quality. Furniture was worn out (one chair on our table was broken). Menus provided were confusing. Indian menu and food quality was great however so if you can ignore all of the above and go just for the food its fine. However I would not go out of my way to have a meal there unless these issues were addressed.
Firstly my main gripe was the menu situation.
From the website it looked like there was a choice of English or Indian but on arrival was told the Indian menu was the only one available.
I had lamb rogan josh which was ok if a little bland.
I had mashed potato with it which was a nice touch.
My girlfriend's chicken korma was over cooked with not enough sauce (in our opinion)
Was offered complimentary drink but declined as we wanted to get out because the room was a wee bit chilly.
Great little find. Lovely place with friendly staff, food was terrific tasty and well presented. The only criticism was they do try to rush you to order but on the whole a pleseant experience.
Weird! Very weird! A rather comfortable dining experience
The Hatch gate offers what I consider to be very good food, at a reasonable price. Service is good and there is a free drink after your meal (great touch). As this is a bar as well as a restaurant there is plenty of adult drinks (as well as a good selection of soft drinks). Hence we make very good use of the bus that stops directly outside the pub . (last one around 11 ish into Reading Town)
Will be back again soon.
always good here ,book, try a none busy time--whenever that is.
Pub is next door --happy with lots of locals.
Restaurant quite separate and un hurried
Mediocre service. They should not bother with English food as it was badly cooked.
Excellent service ...
The food was outstanding really enjoyed the hole night. .
We recently had 2 occasions to celebrate, our first experience at the Hatch Gate was so lovely that we chose the same place to eat again for our next celebration. The staff were so friendly and attentive. They surrounded our table with balloons and a party banner, sang happy birthday to my partner & brought him out a slice of cake with a candle on the top and a birthday card, it was such a thoughtful thing to do, they made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. I would like to see more vegetarian options on the menu, my partner and i are vegetarian, we had indian food which was lovely (and vegetarian) but the english menu could do with a few more vegi options, a vegi hatchburger would be great.
This is a fantastic Indian restaurant, we have meals from here all the time either takeaways or sit ins. The food is always delicious, the staff are friendly and soon get to know you by name. I went recently for my birthday where they gave me a card and sung 'happy birthday', a large slice of chocolate cake was brought to the table with a candle in.
service excellent as per always, staff very friendly and helpful.
Food excellent and quick service and helpful with the menu/choices/alternatives
however, not many people in the pub at all - positively empty at times therefore ambiance poor; plus the fire wasnt lit and music was obviously on a programme which doesnt matter but it seemed every 4-5 th song.
Above all, our group was out for get together / prexmas Sunday lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
My recommendation is to ; have that fire lit makes all the difference in a pub ; have xmassy music all the time, where was the xmas tree???????? just small things as the staff are brilliant!
Thought we'd booked a nice pub evening meal for a family of four. Turns out the Hatch Gate Inn is both a pub restuarant serving the usual range of English pub food and lovely Indian too. This meant one teenager could enjoy his steak and chips whilst the rest of us enjoyed a very good Indian meal. Food was excellent. service quietly attentive and reasonable tudor style ambience. We shall return!
