Well Street, Brassington, Matlock, DE4 4HJ
Ye Olde Gate Inn’s 17th-century Grade II listed premises captivate guests from the moment they arrive. Gleaming copper and brassware, wood-panelled walls, low oak beams, and sash windows boasting verdant outlooks paint an enthralling picture of English country life that has seen the inn mentioned in both The Times and The Good Beer Guide. On chillier days the inn’s numerous wood-burning fires and stoves keep the cold at bay, while the suntrap beer garden welcomes dog-walkers and weekend ramblers in search of well-earned respite. Locally sourced ingredients are the order of the day here, with dishes designed to help you refuel after a day exploring the countryside. Think starters of crisp fried whitebait with fresh garden salad, and ham hock terrine with fresh toasted bread, leaves and piccalilli. When it comes to the main event, expect to tuck into the likes of a classic ploughman’s lunch, or even tomahawk steak, côte de boeuf, or pork fillet served with a choice of twice-cooked chips, creamy mash or new potatoes, and seasonal vegetables. For afters, crowd-pleasing sweet treats like sticky toffee pudding will guarantee visitors leave smiling.
