We say…

The Hanging Gate in Belper is famed for its classic British pub food and the fantastic atmosphere it creates. It’s situated in the picturesque Derbyshire countryside, where you can enjoy long, scenic country walks before retiring to this cosy, traditional pub for some comfort food and drinks. Despite its peaceful, secluded location, the Hanging Gate can be easily reached by Ashbourne Road, so whether you’re visiting or live nearby make sure to check it out.

Inside, you’ll love the wholesome feel created by the various crackling log fires, which can often be just as welcome in the British summertime as they are in the winter. If you get lucky with the weather, you’ll love the beautiful gardens filled with fragrant blossoms and roaming ivy, so enjoy a beer or two in the sunshine. This place is perfect for a family day out thanks to its child-friendly menus and friendly staff, who’ll do everything to make sure you have an enjoyable experience.

The kid’s menu has great options, from cheesy garlic bread to a yummy BBQ chicken with baby potatoes and seasonal vegetables, and even deliciously crispy churros to finish, so you can ensure that everyone will be well-catered for. For the adult’s meal, the menu is wide and exciting, as it’s full of new and unexpected combinations such as wild boar and chorizo burgers and well as the brilliant British dishes that we all love, like the grilled gammon steak with seasoned, golden chips. For a starter, we recommend the baked Cornish brie and onion marmalade brulee, as well as the sharing fish platter. For a dessert, we love the fantastically executed gooseberry and raspberry crumble – it’s a real taste of the countryside.


The Hanging Gate in Belper is a hidden gem, as its delicious food and warm ambience make it a hit with everyone from couples, to ramblers, and families. Make sure you pay it a visit for a slice of quintessentially British life in a beautiful setting.
