On a visit to Burton for weekend we popped in hoping to eat here with family of 5 on a Saturday night about 8. It was pretty much empty in the pub apart from a group of old couples in their 70s who glared when we were chatting and laughing. By the way we're not a noisy family! Menu choice... More

A fantastic country pub that I always enjoy visiting. The atmosphere is friendly, the staff very attentive and the food is home cooked and delicious. It's great to find somewhere that is so considerate about those with special diets and caters well for coeliacs, vegetarians, vegans & pescatarians. The spicy vegetarian crepe is so tasty I've had it twice!

An enjoyable brunch to the accompaniment of acoustic guitar. Good breakfast menu. Pity they do not have the facilities to do scrambled eggs.

We came off the A380 at Burton upon Trent looking for somewhere nice to eat. Saw more than enough cheap chain pub joints so decided to venture into the countryside. Came across the Burnt Gate at Anslow and gave it a try. The pub was charming and all staff (mostly young people) couldn't have been more helpful. I suspect that... More

Food very nice, staff very friendly and attentive. We were in the restaurant for the evening so we were not rushed through our courses which is ideal. We like a break between each course . Would definitely go again sometime. Thanks Pete, Beth, Irina, Adam, Jay and Dan. Thanks Jane and Simon

I have not been here for a few years but decided to go again as some of our diners had special dietary requirements and the burnt gate are very accommodating, having gluten free, dairy free menus which were very good, we sat and had a chat in the bar area which is very clean, warm and comfortable. Our order was... More

Although I have put this down as very good and not the best food I have had, I would like to clarify the reason for this. I am one of those people who can no longer eat certain foods and it is sometimes (more often than not), very difficult to go out for a good meal that does not involve... More

Don't doubt the other reviews but today didn't match others opinions. For a venue with awards for service today by the managers own opinion was hit and miss. Over an hour between starter and main and no warnings until food arrived of any issues. Waiting staff tried hard but patently more diners than establishment could cater for. Shame as food... More
