Hook-a-Gate is a village in Shropshire, England. It is located on the Shrewsbury to Longden road, just over the A5 Shrewsbury bypass from Shrewsbury itself. Bayston Hill is nearby, though there is no direct vehicular road connecting the two villages, only a track. It was formerly a stop on the now defunct Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Railway. There is no longer a primary school but there is a Tuition Centre for Secondary children.

The Rea brook flows through the village. The hamlet of Redhill adjoins the village, on the north side of the Rea Brook.

The village is served by one public house - the New Inn.[1] Until 2014, the Mucky Duck (formerly Cygnets) also served as a public house in the village.
