Ancient Gate House Review

This venerable hostelry makes a convenient base for exploring the area. The premises incorporate the Great West Gate, dating from 1473, accessible via an ancient stone staircase. The rooms are small, but some have four-poster beds and views across to the cathedral. Rugantino's serves Italian and English dishes, made largely from local produce. Breakfast may be across the street at the White Hart.
