Description: A privately owned pub and restaurant in the country village of Anslow...
A privately owned pub and restaurant in the country village of Anslow, within striking distance of brewery town Burton-on-Trent, The Burnt Gate is a local favourite finding favour with visitors too. Dating back around 300 years, The Burnt Gate is traditional and cosy, all original beams and open fires, snug bars and oak flooring ��� the perfect place to relax over a pint of ale on a Sunday afternoon or to dine with close family. With three chefs in the kitchen ��� one of whom was named Burton and South Derbyshire���s Best Young Chef 2010 ��� creativity abounds. Indeed traditional ���pub-grub��� dishes are accompanied by inventive creations in fish, dietary requirement friendly veggie and coeliac choices and puddings which have caught diners��� imaginations.

My sister and brother in law live in Derby and took us to this pub for lunch. The service was fantastic. The staff were so attentive. The food was amazing. I had salmon with the most delicious sauce. Would definitely recommend. Lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be going back on our next visit.

Staying in the area on holiday and we had read good reviews so called in for lunch. We were given a really warm welcome by the staff and enjoyed some quality food from the lunchtime menu which had some interesting choices.

We went for Valentines evening and from the warm welcome we received upon our arrival until our departure (we were the last guests to leave), everything was perfect. When checking the Valentines menu on the website it sounded very enticing and we were not disappointed. The food was a delight and the service exceptional. We'll definitely be visiting again soon.

I almost stopped going out to eat but then found this place. Whatever your food intolerance they can cope, serving up a full, top-quality 3-course meal. They even had dairy free mints to go with the coffee. They also have an option for smaller portions (at smaller prices) so you can enjoy a multi-course lunch without feeling too full. And... More

Went here as was on a first date and wanted to find somewhere equidistant. So you can imagine we were both nervous having never met before. Would we meet in the car park exchange glances and retreat to our cars? Or would we cast our first glances upon each other and proceed into the warmth of the Burnt Gate. YES... More
