My boyfriend and I have been to The Watergates on a number of occasions as it is a great place go if you're looking for good quality, fresh food at affordable prices.
We would recommend taking advantage of their "2 for £10" offer which is fantastic value.
The first time we visited (over a year ago) we both had medium rare rump steak and it was really lovely, pink in the middle and fresh. Not massive portions, but more than enough for us, for just £5 each. Unfortunately, it as since disappeared from the menu!
Another classic is the fish and chips with either mushy or garden peas. The chips and peas are standard for a pub, but the fish is always fresh and the batter is lovely, thin and crispy.
The only criticism is that it is not a family friendly pub. It is more for groups of friends and couples because it is quite dark (below ground level) and I think it has a 'no children' policy.
Also, because it is such excellent value for money and good quality food, it is often very busy so be prepared to be turned away at peak lunch hour!
