The Gate Inn is a village pub situated in Sutton cum Lound, a small rural village situated 3 miles to the North West of Retford in the North of the county of Nottinghamshire. Believed to originate back to the mid 1800’s, the Gate Inn is the sole surviving public house in the village.

The pub was fully refurbished in 2014, and again in 2018, which has transformed the premises beyond recognition.
