The Village Gate is a two storey brick built public house with single storey extensions to the side and rear. It was formerly the Marquis of Granby and can purportedly be traced back to the 16th century.
Sadly, much of the fabric of the building was badly damaged in a major fire in August 2019. Our accompanying photos evidence the extent.
