“Should be the best restaurant in Mansfield by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I went here for a meal with boyfriend and we were both absolutely blown away by the food. My boyfriend had the pie of the day and I had a steak special, and we both thought our meals were the best we had in a long time! I also had the chocolate dessert which is to die for! The interior of the restaurant is very nice too, giving the place a really nice ambience! The staff were all really nice too! Will definitely be recommending to family and friends!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Visited Red Gate for the 1st time on Saturday night and was really impressed. Was expecting the exterior appearance so wasn't put off but once inside the Best Side we felt at ease and settled into the lovely chairs and surroundings. The food was as good as I have eaten anywhere and that includes all the top restaurants in Nottingham. I started with the scallops which were divine and followed by lovely pork cooked three ways. My husband had poached smoked hake to start and then chicken wrapped in parma ham which he thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and we could not believe that some people had made negative comments! Service was timed just right and it was a shame we had no room left for pudding! Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

“Awful service :( food ok :)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Terrible service cold welcome, two girls waiting never smiled! The wait was too long in between courses. Maybe the owners are greedy and do not want to invest in more staff, as more staff would Improve the service 100 percent! Would never return to see if any improvements in the future!!!!!

ManagementTheRedgate, Manager at Red Gate, responded to this review, July 2, 2013
Thank you for your recent review. It takes us by surprise your comments as we have fantastic professional staff, of whom are often praised for their good and friendly customer service. Sunday was a particularly busy day, with a busy Sunday lunch and a charity fun day being held to raise money for a young lady with terminal cancer. All this in mind, does not constitute as an excuse for long delays between courses. We would like to reiterate however, that all food is freshly prepared and made to order. There are plenty of other establishments around who do not put their time or energy in to giving customers homemade food and do a high turnover if that is what you prefer for a quicker meal. But that is not us.
We are sorry to see you feel you would not return after to the restaurant. If you change your mind we will be more than happy to see you.
