The Downgate is every bit the quintessential British country pub. Set on the edge of the Port Down common, the Downgate's decor is sympathetic to its stunning setting.

Retaining handsome original features and pairing these with a modern light feel that ensures you feel at home from the moment you arrive.The aim is to bring the traditional and new together, creating an unpretentious atmosphere where you can meet old friends or make new; not forgetting our four-legged friends who will always be welcomed with a bowl of fresh water and a treat. Lauren, Dennis and the team look forward to welcoming you to their pub and hope that you enjoy the traditional seasonal fares that are on offer.
