The Gate Inn is situated on the A447, just south of Ibstock and only 4 miles from the historic Bosworth Battlefield. The pub is easily accessible from Leicester, Loughborough, Burton on Trent and Hinckley. Situated in a rural setting, we provide an extensive menu which boasts a range of classic dishes, complimented supported by a broad range of specials, which are changed regularly. This menu is supported by our fantastic Two for £10 offer - Monday to Friday 12pm - 5pm! Having had an extensive refurbishment in May 2011, the pub now offers more dining space and a fantastic new garden area, with a series of dining areas and a new children's area. With a great range of products available form our bar, our extensive menu we assure of a relaxing time, both inside the pub and in our fabulous garden.

Last minute dinner

This was an impromptu visit as it is local to us. Although the restaurant was busy, we were quickly found a table. There is plenty of choice on the menu, plus specials for all 3 courses. The service was very good, prompt and polite. The meals were also very good and reasonably priced.

Very friendly staff made our visit special. Comfortable and clean restaurant.Such a pity it was raining as the garden area looked lovely. We chose from the 2 for £10 menu and were surprised by the choice. My husband had a 10oz gammon steak and I had pork steaks ( 3 ) with blue cheese sauce. Both our meals were well... More

Arranged to meet the inlaws for a catch up and a meal. The local pub in Newbold was closed due to the chef being away so we decided to look nearby. Ended up here and was so impressed. From the moment we pulled up we were impressed. The garden is beautiful and a lovely area to relax. The pub itself... More
