We have been with a group of friends, family occasions, with young children & as a couple - they cater well for everyone! We initially went as my daughter requires gluten free food as she is Coeliac. They cater brilliantly for her... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable Sunday lunch at The Burnt Gate. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food delicious. My wife particularly enjoyed the short ribbed beef. Being vegetarian, I was very impressed not only with the vegetarian selection but also the fact that vegans and gluten free diets were well catered for. It's always nice not... More

As we have recently moved into Anslow, this was the perfect excuse to try out the local food pub, The Burnt Gate. Quick phone call booked the table, and I rounded up my son and daughter and... More

Great evening spent at The Burnt Gate tonight. Friendly and professional service from the moment we walked in, Beth and the rest of the waiting staff made us feel very welcome. Food was absolutely superb, particular the side of beef which was cooked to perfection. Thank you for a brilliant night.

Never have I even been so shocked at the presentation of the food, it all just looked carelessly slopped onto a plate. Also, the food was cold and we mentioned it to the waitress who wasn't very helpful. I wouldn't consider going back.

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.
