I have been to Barry gate both before the change of ownership and since. The food is still of high quality. My partner and I were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. It was last Saturday and at 8pm, the restaurant was busy as expected. We did have starters, and they arrived promptly considering the number of... More

We had a family meal at The Barry Gate on New Year's Eve, with a table of seven. When I phoned up to book a table, I was told they had 'a' table available at 8:30 on New Year's Eve, and they were very busy. I therefore booked the table, thinking the restaurant would be really busy. We arrived at... More

Having used the Barry Gate for a number of years without any complaints we were very disappointed on our recent visit. Having ordered over the phone we were advised under NEW MANAGEMENT with a new menu. When we picked the meal up were extremely shocked as the cost had increased by approximately £12.00. Stated my annoyance and was advised that... More

I went here one night as a spur of the moment thing late one evening midweek. The place was totally empty and the owners were surprised.that we had asked to sit in and eat. That said, the staff were very friendly and made every effort to ensure we enjoyed our meals and the experience, making conversation and making us feel... More

Me & my other half always come here if we ever fancy an Indian, whether takeaway or sit down. Excellent food & really good service. The manager & staff are so lovely, the manager always asking us about work & takes time out to come and chat to us. Even though my other half can be a pain when ordering,... More

We've just got home from yet another really tasty, good value for money Friday night curry. We've been visiting the Barry Gate restaurant for a number of years. We always get a warm welcome and a friendly greeting from the lovely Manager and his staff. We some time have a takeaway meal where my husband picks up the excellent food... More
