Bringing Generations Together

The Downgate is one of Arkell's pubs for all seasons - as warm and cosy in the wintertime as it is bright and fresh in the summer, but don't take our word for it. The pub is regularly listed in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, which describes The Downgate as follows:

"Quiet pub on the edge of Hungerford Common, with a friendly village inn atmosphere. A small, intimate dining area is a few steps down from the bar… Pleasant summer drinking."

Enough said.
