5 out of 10. Average pub food, ridiculously over priced £14 - £26 for mains starters £6-£9. I ordered squid see photo, 7 very small rings with a cherry tomato and a half handful of lettuce leafs cost £7.50, my friend ordered roast pork baguette with a few chips and lettuce leaves, bread chewy and pork reheated and fatty.
I don’t mind paying £12 - £15 for a pub main but they should st least get the food to a reasonable standard.
Unfortunately would not recommend for food but nice setting for a beer on the edge on hungerford common.

This a relatively small pub on the edge of Hungerford common, a good escape from the Hurley burley of the busy high street. Lauren runs the pub in a very friendly way with equally friendly staff. The food has improved a lot in the last month or so, especially if Lauren gets involved, so why not ask!

Wonderful service and food outstanding as previously experienced. Nothing too much trouble and very clean. Would definitely book again for both menus offered at this wonderful local establishment.

I’ve lived in Hungerford for over 20 years and we are very lucky to have some of the best pubs and restaurants in our amazing town. That not only manage their own business but provide great service to the local community.
The Downgate is one of my favourite pubs to go too. Always fabulous service, great food and incredibly friendly and it is not expensive.
Make up your own mind, some feedback can be incredibly one sided.

Poor service, expensive menu and all staff running around like headless chickens! Just not worth it. So many better places now
