Remotely situated in the beautiful foothills of the Peak District, The Hanging Gate in Shottlegate offers vintage and trusted pub cuisine. A 17th-century building, the extensive yet pretty ivy on the brickwork befits the durability and dependability of the pub. It features rich oak furniture, an charming old-fashioned clock, a welcoming hearth-fire and an al fresco dining area outside, from which you can enjoy the spectacular view.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Hanging Gate menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Hanging Gate ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In Derbyshire, The Hanging Gate is only a 4-minute drive from Belper Train Station.

    We drove past this pub earlier in the evening and said: "that looks like a nice pub" so we decided to book a table later. We arrived and was immediately shown to a table (it was a Monday eve). It is nicely lit and appointed, tables are well spaced. Waitress (Jessica) gave us time to choose and was friendly.

    Food was good. I would say slightly overpriced but with the bookatable 20% discount it was just right.

    A good experience.

    Lovely food, well cooked and presented. The service was great, very friendly and helpful. We liked the atmosphere in the pub, nice and cosy with low level lighting. It made our meal seem private even though the pub was busy. Will definitely visit again.
