Situated at the heart of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is within South Warwickshire and at the mid-way point of the North Cotswolds Way, The Gate in Brailes is the ideal base for your next walking or cycling break.

This very traditional Hook Norton Brewery inn has everything that you need to plan and enjoy any countryside activity in this part of the world known locally as 'The Feldon'.


We can now offer very comfortable en-suite bed and breakfast accommodation for double or family occupancy, along with everything that you would expect from a country inn including locally sourced homemade food, cask-conditioned ales, traditional cider and a fantastic beer garden.


Our rooms both have TV, tea and coffee is available and you can also access our free WiFi network and make use of our guest washing and drying facilities for your outdoor gear!

Also on tap is extensive local knowledge and sound practical advice on route planning and navigation (should you need it) from our resident ex-Countryside Access professional.

Luggage transfer for linear walking can be arranged and we are a 'dog-friendly' pub.


The pub is situated between Shipston on Stour and Banbury and approximately 10-12 miles from Stratford upon Avon. It is a regular stopping point for walkers enjoying the countryside and is the base for many ramblers attempting the five-mile Brailes Three Hills walk on May Day.
