Perfect for lunch after a walk round the nearby Linacre Reservoir with friends. A very warm welcome from the landlady who immediately offered us a tab without the need to put a credit card behind the bar. A wide range of sandwiches, baguettes and ciabattas, both hot and cold. We had 5 different types between us and every one was... More

First time for my wife and I, although my sister has been going for years and they recommended this place, beautiful setting overlooking the Derbyshire hills and countryside, nice walks close by, especially Linacre Reservoir. I had fish and chips which were amazing, my wife had a home made burger which she enjoyed. Sister and brother-in-law both had prawn sandwiches... More

Fantastic lunch with friends. Top notch as expected.. the homemade chips are the best in the area. Friendly staff, great beers and ciders. Views out the back are phenomenal..

We have been going to The Gate for several years but, unfortunately, it has been a few months since we last visited. However, as we have experienced in the past, our meal was excellent (fish and chips and scampi and chips). I am very funny about how I like my fish and this was cooked just as I like it... More

This has always been one pub that you could go to knowing that you were in for a good meal and a friendly welcome. The welcome is still there but since the menu has been cut down, which is not a bad thing, the standard of the food has also been cut back too. Unfortunately I left feeling disappointed and... More

About a 15 minute walk from Linacre Reservoir is one of the best country pubs in the vicinity. Very traditional in look & stature- so much character within what with the open stoked fire & fantastic views of the countryside. Only opted for a cheese & chutney baguette on this occasion but wish I'd have opted for a pie &... More

A traditional pub with a good menu and specials board. After a long walk through the countryside we then drove to the nearest pub and what a pleasant find. The Gate Inn was quite busy but the staff were extremely welcoming. We ordered from the pie menu (Turkey and leek) and can thoroughly recommend this dish. The home made chips... More

Fifth visit to the Gate Inn. Every time my partner and I have eaten at the Gate the food and service has been consistently good. We both had lamb dinner with veg. a Yorkshire pudding and potatoes. My partner had apple crumble for dessert while I had the cheese board. The food was delicious and the service second to none.... More

Been here several times before, mostly because it was near work & had a nice country setting. There are 3 areas to eat, the tables near the bar & openfire, a 2nd room situated at the front of the inn & a room towards the rear of the inn which has views over the country side. All places to eat... More
