Excellent food as always would highly recommend This place
Staff all helpful and amazing service
Defo be going again
As always amazing food, all members of staff can’t do enough for you. The food is great value for money, you definitely Don’t leave hungry. Very pleasant atmosphere where you can enjoy the company of the others at the table. Will be visiting again soon.
Fabulous food, all of our party enjoyed their meal. Service was very poor with long wait to initially order, then between courses and asked 4 times to see the desert menu! Also went to the bar to get drinks as couldn’t seem to get anyone’s attention to order at table. We were told that they were short staffed that night but friends and relatives who have also been there said they’ve had very similar experiences. We still had a good night and food was great but was a bit frustrating.
We were seated quickly but we did have to ask for menus and for someone to take our drinks order. When we ordered our food it arrived and was presented well. Everything tasted great. By now the restaurant looked full and we ordered more drinks and desserts. After about 30 mins we had to ask where are drinks and desserts were. Desserts turned up slightly melted but the drinks failed to appear. We questioned these again and were told they were not on the bar. Our server did get them taken off the bill. Even though there were some issues, the food was very good
beautiful meal... we have booked for the Sunday before Christmas. looking forward to it.. Thank you
Lovely place for a late lunch with customers - not fish and chips on a Friday which disappointed a couple of guests. meat portions whilst nice are now getting too big for the average eater !
Once again could not find fault with anything. Can't wait to go back
Fabulous lunch and very good value, great choice and delicious deserts
Another fantastic meal! However I called earlier on in the day to confirm that there were oysters available to find when we got there only 6 available. As a ‘specialist item’ I wish they’d said either they can’t be guaranteed despite saying they would be available.
Visited for our mothers birthday, went at lunch time, good value amazing food, will definitely book again
Enjoyed a lovely lunchtime meal at the gate. Fantastic choice for a very excellent fixed price. Meals were outstanding. Only downside was that the whole place was cold. Next time will wear a wholly jumper but eating in a cold room is not ideal even if the food is excellent. Waiting staff excellent also.
Fabulous meal - great choice as always excellent value at£11.95 for 2 courses! As we are regulars it is great that the menu choice changes regularly so we get to try new dishes. Couple of small service issues- we asked for a jug a water for the table and only one glass supplied for a table of 4- also bought bottle of wine in bar area before we were seated and had to carry it through myself which was not ideal. Overall excellent and highly recommend!
This was the first time visiting The Gate and we thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience x we will definitely visit again xx Thank you x
I attended my first visit to The Gate with my friends, now all my family and I attend regularly. The food is excellent, generous portions and great value for money. Staff are extremely courteous. I highly recommend this place. We have been following Gareth around for a while. He is an excellent chef.
Would I recommend the gate to a friend ! I already have. This is the second dining experience, first was in the evening, the second Sunday lunch both were excellent and will return very soon.
Nothing to much trouble, sympathetic to my wife's disability and always helpful with it! On entry the warm greeting on a cool day was cheering all the way to our more suitable table. A quick offering of a drink to wet the appetite and send taste buds over the Sunday menu. The choice was a good one and not one slight complaint was thought about all the way to coffee! Congratulations The Gate see you again soon!
Food was precooked and cold although there was more than enough but still not worth the cost
We were Stuck in a corner/cubbyhole with no windows and couldn’t be moved even though there were spare tables.
Service was good though very polite and helpful
Excellent food and great service. Couldn't fault it.
Very nice place relaxed atmosphere good service and very quick ,food was hot and good portions will go again
First visit will not be our last already planning a return food superb.
Would defiantly recommend
Always enjoy our visit to the gate wonderful food always
I've only been there once before and it was nice.
Decided to take my friend there as we haven't seen each other for ages, and I wanted to treat her.
We sat by the steps where it was quite chilly and the walk way for the restaurant. We asked to be moved but was told they were fully booked. There were plenty of tables for two available which didn't have reserved on them, so couldn't see a problem. However they wouldn't move us.
The order went well, after that we had wrong starters sent to our table, when our mains came they were wrong.
We ordered the steak medallions with peppercorn sauce and New potatoes.
They sent a fish n chip .
When our steaks came they sent chips not potatoes.
After this was all sorted out our meal was nice however the experience was disappointing.
Wasn't even offered some discount off the bill which would have been a nice gesture.
Only our second visit but won’t be our last.
This will now be our first choice restaurant for casual evenings out and with friends and family.
Just wish it was closer to us but well worth the trip.
I never choose steak in restaurants because I am very particular and the meat must be very lean.
Two visits and the steak I chose couldn’t have been any leaner.
Favourite place to eat 👍, great value great food .
Very disappointed. Have been to the The Gate once before which was before 5pm so the 2 for £11.99 offer was on. Food and service were good that day so thought we would try it too celebrate my sons graduation results.
Wish we hadn’t bothered. Service was terrible. Our starters came out at different times. Both my sons had the chicken wings which cane out 8mins apart. My son said it was like they were cooked by 2 different people. One lot was dry and the other ones very wet.
Soup if you could call it that I had to send back. Was supposed to have been roasted tomato. It was like a tin of tomato’s mixed up. Not at all smooth and tasteless.
The rest of the food was ok just over priced for what it was.
Service was none existent. Coke was watered down and had to be returned. Then had too wait 15mins to get the bill.
Could be a lovely place but food quality and staff need to be improved.
Amazing food, friendly staff and fantastic value.
Would definitely recommend
great choice on the lunch menu, service was very good and staff very friendly and i would recommend it as a great place to dine
What a beautiful place. Decor, food, service all perfect. Our first visit but certainly not our last.
Great food, service and good value. Excellent seafood and Steaks. We will be back soon!
Lovely food, excellent menu. Good chef. Problem with hygiene, long hair attached to menu and dust all over the top of vinegar bottle, very off-putting.
Lovely food lovely staff
Very good Value for money. Roast dinners are gorgeous, children’s dinners are very large. Would come back
My second visit to the gate and again didn’t disappoint
Food was excellent, probably the nicest steak I’ve ever hand, Cooke to perfection
Will definitely be going again
My partner had the fillet steak
My mother had Meddallions and lobster
I had the 20oz Cote de Boeuf
As I said was excellent
Would highly recommend
Outstanding food . Only let down was the 15min wait for a drink order but the restaurant quickly made us forget that with the outstanding food and service
The food and service was very good very attentive. My only criticism would be that I think after a certain time especially on a Saturday that children should not be allowed as we were celebrating a romantic anniversary meal found that a child crying loudly spoilt the ambience. Will definitely use again
Came for my husband's birthday. We were really excited to try somewhere new. He ordered a large 25oz steak medium rare, however when it arrived it was raw. The staff were really good and took it away, when it came back it was cooked better, but a bit charcoaled on the outside and lots of red liquid oozed out of it, because it wasn't rested properly the second time. He continued to eat it as by this time sending it back again would have caused even more of a delay and the rest of the food would have been cold. He tried to get a discount as the steak was very expensive but this was refused. Would not hurry to visit again. If large steaks are going to be on the menu, you would expect that they would be cooked correctly.
