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.
Excellent food , staff very friendly and efficient , can't wait to go back .
Went for lunch and had the 2 course lunch menu for £14.95 and it was fantastic. Food was super and served quickly and efficiently. Well worth a visit and we will be back! Also visited the food hall area where fresh meat fish cheese and much more are sold. Lovely food, excellent quality and service all round in both parts was very good.
It is always lovely to eat at the gate your always made to feel special
I can’t fault the service although the food itself was a little disappointing.
The stuffed chicken was dry for the price to expect it to be cooked to perfection.
The lunchtime menu was incredibly good value. Staff were friendly and the tables were socially distanced well. The food was delicious!
Excellent food and service. Staff very friendly and professional in these difficult times.
Excellent food as usual. Fab service from wonderful staff
First time eating at the Gate and definitely won’t be the last !! Very well organised for the situation that restaurant are in at the moment hand sanitizer every were trac and trace all done correctly cleaning of tables and chairs after every sitting, food was delicious and the three course lunch menu was great value . Very large portion size can’t not praise it enough
Arrived on time seated late , after diners who had arrived early no notice taken of time table was booked for.
Scallops beautifully cooked as was the salmon, but the monkfish was overcooked dry and tough. We were told they had already over stayed the 90 minutes allocated before we were shown the desert menu , so obviously didn’t order a desert just had half a cup of the coffee and paid the Bill before leaving feeling that we were being hurried out . No account seemed to have been consider that we were nearly half an hour late being seated and you can’t eat a meal until it is delivered to your table.
I had a previous booking here on the 1st of the month and didn’t experience any problems at all and delighted hence this booking for the 11th. I am concerned as I have another table booked for the 21st for a very special occasion and only hope it will be better than this one. Marilyn Beardmore
Service very good. Food not up to usual standard, the chips were under cooked and the lamb rump had a significant amount of inedible fat. Also put to sit under the speaker, but were told that the Xmas music could not be turned down a bit. Difficult to have a conversation.
We thoroughly enjoyed when the waiter and the chef had a vocal argument across the hot counter and we could hear them f’ing and blinding in the kitchen. Great entertainment, reminded me of Faulty Towers :)
Never disappointed here Fabulous food served by lovely staff
Loved the mocktails
Thank you See you soon 🎄😊
We were met by a member of staff after presenting ourselfs for our table which we were about 25 minutes early with you can’t wait in the lounge area and you didn’t tell us you had a push chair? Which is really not very customer friendly and a bit rude I found perhaps a little bit of customer service training needed ! But were seated right away so was puzzled by the staff member, apart from that the food was lovely and will return and hopefully be greeted with a bit more professionalism .
Quick and delicious lunch, the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious! Can’t wait to come back!
Great service and safe and professional. Excellent value for money
As normal a great meal
The lamb was a little over cooked for me, but for the price it was acceptable.
The attention to hygiene and cleanliness was impressive, and they took COVID preventative measures very seriously.
Beautiful food, very good value and cosy atmosphere. I will return very soon.
