About the Pub

Deemed to be unviable and sold by the pub’s former owners, the Gate Inn re-opened in December 2010 as a free house and has quickly established itself as a quality real ale outlet, winning Nottingham CAMRA’s Pub of Excellence award in 2011 and Nottingham CAMRA LocAle Pub of the Year in 2013. A truly welcoming and friendly local, this late 19th century pub has a bar and a lounge. The current owners are gradually renovating the pub and have added a skittle alley, rooftop terrace and an outside courtyard at the rear. In February 2016, the main bar was refurbished and an old fireplace rediscovered, which now houses a log burning stove. The doorway leading into the bar has been made into an archway. The Forty Arches room (front right) and Snug (front left) were refurbished in April 2017.

Historic Interest

Registered as an Asset of Community Value 20th May 2016 and nominated by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA. The Gate Inn has an historic interior rated by CAMRA as being of Regional Importance. "A three-storey building pub in Georgian-style but dating from c.1880. Originally, it is thought, the pub consisted of a bar with servery, situated where you now find the inside toilets on the right, and the small snug on the left, with a passageway between them. Then in the 1950s two former private rooms at the rear were brought into use – a bar with new servery on the rear left and a lounge on the rear right - and the pub has barely changed since. The central entrance leads into a T-shaped hall with staircase leading to a function room. This area is a popular ‘drinking passage’ with a few tables and chairs; the servery is straight ahead with a small hatch counter – the panelled front of which is of a 50s style and has a Formica top. Front-left snug is used for pool and has very old fixed benches all round, but the fireplace has been removed. Rear-left is the main bar with 1950s counter and plain bar back, fixed seating could be of similar vintage but there is no fireplace. Rear-right is a lounge with plushly upholstered benches each side and service from a door-hatch with panelling below, all of 1950s vintage; as could be the fireplace. Most walls are in 'Artex' style with applied timbers. Original doors and door surrounds throughout. The former skittle alley has been converted into a smoking area by removing one wall." "Update April 2012. This former Hardy & Hansons pub is now a free house selling a range of real ales. A new extension is being built to house: new toilets including a disabled one: a corridor to the skittle alley: on the first floor toilets for the function room: an outside drinking/smoking area. The existing gents’ and ladies’ toilets are to be converted back into a room (licensees say it was originally a living room) and then the pool table will be moved into the new room (it may have an arched entrance) and the present pool room on the left will become a snug. In the public bar the darts has been moved and a short partition added around it. In the lounge the 1960s timbering on the walls will be removed and a Victorian-style fireplace put back in. These seems to be sympathetic alterations leaving the previous layout intact and passageway drinking will continue ( Freehold NT441644 held by Kanidae Limited (Reg. No. 7428980) as at November 2017.
