Description: " The Gate Inn " caters for everyone. Being a village pub: local's call in for quick pint along with the pool and darts and boules teams who's friendly banter provides a great family and friendly atmosphere. Our extensive food menu and reasonably priced list of selected beers and wines have found popularity with our regular customers who give us honest feedback to keep us fresh and on our toes. Our new private function room with its own bar and rest room facilities room can cater for up to 100 diners which is great for those family occasions. With two outdoor terraces with great views over the countryside you can relax whist the kids play in secure area playground.

Nice friendly Pub in the village of Tansley found whilst searching trip advisor for a light lunch on a cold and snowy day (02/04/18). Family of four pre-booked 1hour in advance and glad we did as the pub was busy with locals and visitors, food was of good quality, presented well and tasted fresh and homemade, service both at bar area and table was pleasant by all members of staff. A nice find and we will be back in the summer. Thank you

Went for a few pints and decided to try their food on our visit to Matlock for an anniversary.

Food was beautiful and staffs are so friendly - we asked for a few ice cubes so we can enjoy a couple of cocktails back in the airbnb, they gave us a full bag!

Definitely recommend for hospitality and food.

This meal was awful! We visited some time ago and was delighted with the home/handmade burger, made with fresh minced steak which was beautiful. On returning with friends, I was presented with a disgusting "burger" moulded from cheap mince meat. If I had done a 'blind taste test', I would not have been able to say what meat it was (chicken?). It reminded me of those disgusting things we had in the 1970's. It was soggy,pappy,fatty and worse. You have not only lost a regular, I will warn as many friends and other people I can. Cutting standards in this way, to make a bit more profit, does not deserve any other reaction than contempt. Appalling meal, will; never return.

We’ve recently been staying in Matlock and have visited this pub on 4 occasions now - absolutely cannot fault it!
Muddy boot and dog friendly, near to some fabulous walks and scenery as well.
Every time we have visited the service has been friendly, efficient and even at busy times we have been welcomed and told how long we will have to wait by friendly and patient staff - such a change from the flustered and often rude staff you find in other popular pubs!
The food is always fresh, well presented and the meat locally sourced.
So reasonably priced for the standard of food as well, every dish so far has been wonderful.
Do keep it up!!

A surprisingly high standard of restaurant food. Great value for money and pleasant staff. A hidden gem in Tansley. A pub with restaurant dishes.
