Dining at Gates

Come join us and experience a warm welcome when dining at Gates. We serve high quality, delicious food and drinks, so you can unwind and spend precious time with loved ones.

Enjoy a delicious meal or afternoon tea in the beautiful setting of our Garden Restaurant, where we now feature the Autumn Winter British classics menu. Fresh food and drinks are served daily, with lighter options available. This large, friendly space overlooks the Leicestershire countryside and has roaring log fires to warm on a wintery day.

Organising a special event? Book a private dining experience in the stylish Vellum Room or larger Thornton Suite, situated in the Garden Restaurant.

In our walled garden, the Courtyard Coffee Shop is for more cosy, casual dining and serves breakfast, lunch, and drinks. Why not relax on a sofa by the log burner?

Both are open seven days a week.
