Waitresses/waiters were very friendly and helpful.
I felt the food was way over priced for what was served.
Starters were lovely.. Main course was extremely disappointing..I didnt even finish the plate which is totally not like me .
I Heard alot about this restaurant & feel rather disappointed.

Everything from entering the restaurant to leaving a couple of hours later was wonderful. The quality of the food and service was top notch. I also loved the selection of foods on the menu.

Top quality vegetarian/vegan food prepared with care and lovely presentation.

Food is OK, Service is OK too... We were told to leave our table half way through our drinks because they needed it for the next customers.. Check when you book!

When we ate there the first time everything tasted amazing. This time it all tasted bland and even the same dishes tasted very different sadly.

The food was great. It’s a pity it took almost an hour to get to us. When you see the food, you can immediately tell that that it was very carefully crafted so you can understand part (but not all) of the delay. The presentation was impeccable. We loved the open kitchen, but the tables and chairs and overall decor scream ‘cafeteria’ and are many levels below the quality, taste, innovation, and presentation of the food.

The food at the gate was mostly excellent, although our cauliflower was rather over cooked (we think they forgot about it, as it also didn’t come until we’d almost finished our meal). The space is lovely and it’s a great place for meetings as you can hear each other, it’s light and airy.
The service was incredibly friendly, but it felt like they must have been highly understaffed. The staff didn’t stop running, but rarely had time to check in, so it was hard to get refills of water or check where our food was. Nonetheless, I would probably go back and would recommend the restaurant to others.

Food was good. Service was great and attentive especially for kids.
The only thing is, i do find it served food which is more savoury than other establishments. At least these apply for the dishes we ordered.

Tried The Gate for the first time for lunch recently, I am pescatarian/vegetarian and don’t often go to solely vegetarian/vegan restaurants. Well I’m so glad I did, wonderful selection, interesting, well presented and delicious dishes, professional and pleasant staff in a tastefully elegantly designed space. Don’t hesitate!

Took advantage of The Gate’s 30th Anniversary set menu, which was very good value for money.
Good sized portions & tasty dishes.
