At The Gate Inn we aim to offer high quality food and drinks in a relaxed and peaceful canalside setting in the village of Clarborough, near Retford.


Outside, a large south facing terrace overlooks the Chesterfield canal and there is a pretty garden area to the rear where you can relax and enjoy the countryside views.


Inside, a large open fireplace with log fire provides a warm cosy atmosphere, and you can enjoy a variety of homemade snacks and sandwiches, whilst relaxing on the comfy leather sofas. To the rear there is a modern, stylish, restaurant with lovely views over the canal and garden.


Boats pass by regularly and there are overnight moorings for up to six canal boats with free Superfast Fibre WiFi access.






Our traditional Sunday Carvery is served from 12 - 7pm and offers a choice of 3 roast meats, together with a selection of weekly specials, including one chicken dish, one fish dish and one vegetarian dish.

A selection of starters and desserts, which change weekly, are also available.


One Course £8.95

Two Courses £12.95

Three Courses £16.95


Booking in advance is recommended as our Sunday carvery is very popular.
