    COSY AND INVITING

    Set in the picturesque countryside of Derbyshire yet just a few miles away from Sheffield, Chesterfield and the wonderful Chatsworth House and Gardens, theGate Inn is the quintessential English Inn. It offers the charm and character of an historic inn together with a contemporary restaurant. You will find the restaurant to be bright and relaxing while the inn is cosy and inviting.

    About theGate Inn

    Built in 1892 and standing at around 900ft above sea level, we are located just short of the highest point of the B6050 between Chesterfield and Baslow. To the rear of the building you'll find the main car-park and terracing that provides spectacular views towards Chesterfield and Sheffield. On a clear day Lincoln Cathedral can be seen.

    Maybe beside the open log fire, the pair of stools beside the east facing window, a stool at the end of the bar or one of several quiet corners.
