Jamie, at the front of house, is a local boy who has been in the booze trade all his life. With a scary knowledge of just about everything, he'll remember your name, what you like to drink and where you like to sit, natural crowd pleaser, with Mr. Darcy style charm and can drink most locals under the table. With Jamie, you have the girls, Liz is wifey, camper van lover, marathon runner and fabulous mummy to the twins, Ellie and Alice the 7 year old resident princesses, you will very quickly become acquainted as they twirl around the pub
This is Scott and Brooke, who run the show at The Gate - a young local couple who’s passion for the pub is only matched by their enthusiasm for fun! They’ve both been in the trade since they were
teenagers and have racked up a huge amount of experience in a relatively short time. Brooke is the unflappable queen of service and planning events, and Scott looks after both the customers old
and new, as well as the newly formed Gate FC Sunday League team!
These guys are here to make sure you have the best possible time with us - nothing is too much trouble for them be it a quick pint, Sunday lunch for 10 or a full on party for 80!
Kevin is our Head Chef, originally a St. Albans boy he has spent the last 35 years cheffing practically everywhere, Geronimo in London, Browns, Gaucho and under such names as Lee Milne. He recently left Ibiza Rocks, Pikes Hotel to join us at The Gate.
Kevin is by nature, one of those eccentric guys in life that refuse to grow old, spending his days raving it up at old school house parties and indulging in his passion for food. He’s definitely a cool chef to work with!
With an unquenchable desire to produce high quality home cooked food - always fresh, always fantastic. There is nothing ordinary about anything Kev's concocts in the kitchen, his eye for detail and creative skills allow him to manipulate the traditional food we love and transform them into one of a kind creations.
