Absolutely loved the food as always. The only thing I would say is that we had the table booked for 2 hours and We felt really rushed. We ordered a drink and didn’t have chance to have a sip before our food arrived. I felt like that waiters were constantly checking to see whether we finished a course and the whole thing was rushed. We arrived at 1pm for our table and left by 2pm as everything was so quick so didn’t have time to enjoy being out again for the first time. Don’t mean to be negative as we love the gate and and food but it really felt as though we were under pressure to eat and drink quickly and leave which spoilt the afternoon
Outstanding food and a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be back again soon.
Lovely brunch on outside terrace, service excellent as usual and food was delicious.
Can’t wait to go back
Staff were very welcoming and the outdoor dining was well organised.
Our meals were delicious. We cant wait to go back 🥰
Even tho due to government guide lines we ate outside on the terrace, the sun did come out, it was very pleasant, The food and service was excellent, we do go there regularly and there is never a difference in service or quality of food, we certainly will be going back there soon. Thank you all.
Thanks for a great meal. Food was fabulous and service really good. Took our desserts home as so full!! It was the first time in almost a year for me and my husband to spend time with our son, and we couldn’t have chosen anywhere better for a family get together.
Outside eating very cosy. Fabulous food as always
Went there for my birthday breakfast and everything was set out very well loved the fact that they hadhand gel and hand wipes on tables.
Amazing food as always with great service.
Lovely as ever
First time eating out after lockdown. Simply awesome food. Great job The Gate
We were seated in the carpark away from the heaters. The fillet steak that I ordered was almost impossible to cut.
did you complain at the time about your steak? if not, why not? i guess you didnt like that table and have made up that a fillet steak couldnt be cut.... because to be honest all fillet steaks are the tenderest of beef cuts and as ours are a quality above other restaurants, to be uncutable is nigh on impossible.
Great food, nice place, only eat from the lunch menu which was very reasonable, weather wasn't the warmest but was made much more comfortable with halogen heating 😀
I have never had a bad dinning experience at "The Gate" . The food is exceptional and the staff friendly and polite.
The service was extremely poor, the waiters where moody and felt like they didn’t want to be there, it felt rushed and the food was very average for the price of it! Very expensive. Not worth the money. The staff are rude and didn’t feel comfortable at all in the place
hmm strange review as this was our first day back doing what we know best after all this time and al the other reviews said the service was good. what name was your table booked under?
Great food and great service, looking forward to our next meal at the gate
I ordered a Fillet Steak, and although it was cooked & Presented Perfectly, it was actually Tasteless. My Partner ordered the Skewers which were overcooked.
did you take it up with a member of staff or the manager? if not we could of rectified it there and then
It was first day opening and it was not a warm day but they didn’t seem prepared although we had booked. Food was ok but nothing special. Will go back once inside is open.
hi, sorry to read this, can you elaborate why you thought we were unprepared and also why the food was mediocre?
Shut due to Covid
Fast service on the day we visited. Food excellent as always. Excellent value two course menu. Couldn't fault anything.
Everything was perfect. Food was delicious and service perfect. Excellent value for money.
Thank you 😊
Great food and servers so kind and attentive. Will be going back
Best restaurant I’ve ever been too . The food keep getting better with every day . The chicken wings are the best thing I’ve ever tasted !
See you guys again very soon
Chris and kodi
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Can’t wait till you reopen as a restaurant
Outstanding lunch at a great price, just felt a bit rushed, although understandable in current circumstances
Excellent pre Christmas lunch with my wife. The meals were very good indeed and well presented. It is such a pity that we arn't going to be able to visit The Gate again any time soon 🙄🙄
First visit and we were so impressed that we cancelled the meal we had booked for our Anniversary four days later to re-book here. Unfortunately due to drakeford the destroying Christmas and the hospitality sector in Wales our meal was cancelled. Looking forward to coming back as soon as possible.
From checking in to checking out, the service was fantastic, the orders were taken efficiently, the food was prompt and delicious, the ambience was calm and quiet but the atmosphere had a buzz in the air, I will definitely be booking a table in the New Year when we come out of this latest lockdown (how we long it may be)
Delicious food, with courteous and helpful staff made for a lovely experience. Definitely will be going back.
Great food, quick service, will definitely go back
Good food and service during these difficult times. Prices have increased somewhat since my last visit but still good value.
As usual the food was fantastic and value for money. We all had the rump steak with peppercorn corn, which was great. We went at lunch time and had the lunch menu. This is a restaurant I go to on a regular basis and have never been disappointed.
Lunch menu for a birthday celebration. Food was lovely, perfectly cooked and well presented. Portions were more than adequate. Excellent value.
Excellent meal at The Gate- service and food excellent- 3 course stunning meal for under £20 per person!! What’s not to like well done the Gate and loved a visit to the Deli afterwards where we bought the cheesecake we had totally enjoyed with our meal!!
Totally recommend !!
Absolutely stunning food as always, 100% recommend The Gate.
Fantastic food and service as always!
Can’t wait to return and hopefully we’ll be able to mix with friends soon!
Thanks for doing what you do so well.
Happy Christmas To all
Lamb was beautiful
Love coming to The Gate, you can pretty much guarantee the same quality every time. Staff are hard working and can’t do enough. The lunch menu is great value for money and the portions are perfect!
Good food as always, pity covid stops us having an alcholic drink with our meal, but good range of non alcohol drinks
Fantastic meal, superb service and all under tough but safe conditions. Thank you.
