Ye Olde Gate Inn is Grade II listed and is situated in the heart of the village of Brassington. It is 3 miles North of Carsington Water and close to the market towns of Wirksworth and Ashbourne, on the edge of the Beautiful Peak District.

Ye Olde Gate has been named Britain’s cosiest pub by The Times. Roger Protz, the editor of The Good Beer Guide was asked to recommend pubs with all the cosy features you need to keep freezing temperatures at bay - roaring fires, good company, and a fine pint - and came up with Ye Olde Gate Inn Brassington. He wrote -

"Ye Olde Gate Inn, Brassington, Derbyshire Simply the perfect winter pub: you won’t find a cosier place in the country. It pulls off the rare trick of being a genuine local, packed with villagers, but thoroughly warm and welcoming to visitors, too."   This year we are 400 years old, and you can feel the history – Bonnie Prince Charlie’s soldiers were billeted here on their march to London, and some of the oak beams came from ships of the Spanish Armada.

When you step over the threshold, there is a feeling of stepping back in time. The traditional, historic feel has been retained while also providing a comfortable, friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy some fine food and drink. In winter, the whole area is kept snug and cosy with open fires.

A frequented dog and walker friendly watering hole for walkers resting up after trekking along the High Peak Trail, visitors enjoy a menu that ranges from old pub favourites like  filled baguettes, ploughman’s, the 10oz Tomahawk Steak, Barnsley Chop to locally caught Carsington Trout, Steaks and Gressingham Goose - see Sample Menus for a selection of the food on offer, please note that we have Daily Specials, the menu changes regularly, all tastes catered for.
