This is my third meal at Gather. The setting, view and ambience are stunning. The food is excellent. I am looking forward to them putting on more vegan options in the future.

Delicious food and amazing service combined with a very unique setting. Beautiful views and the chance to sit outside on heated seats or with a log burning chiminea. Exquisite.

There are concerns that the next table was too close, we could have touched. The restaurant was very busy. Not happy as chairs were not sanitised and the table was quickly wiped, previous cutlery was left on table, pen not sanitised. Things just happened too quickly. Possibly due to only 2 waiting staff. Anther visitor did not have a mask and as we were at the door too close to incoming visitors. We will be back, but after Covid.

Hey! We loved being with you at Gather and so appreciate such a lovely space so close to home. I did leave some feedback when with you, which looking back, may have appeared a little rude. Apologies- it was never my intention. I realise that there are vegetarian/vegan options, but I was left feeling a little short- a burger, vegan burger or the platter (if I remember correctly). I don't want to seem ungrateful as we are so lucky to have any choice of food to eat.....but it felt as though the meat free food was a bit of an afterthought.... love the venue, great service and a light in these dark times.

At lasts a modern eatery In D&G. In addition it has the most fabulous views. “GATHER” will go from strength to strength and will no doubt be so popular you will have to book well in advance.
3 Cheers for GATHER and 5 Stars!!
