Great food, lovely service, uncomfortable seating. The homemade foccaccia appetiser is great. We followed with starters of mozzarella & courgettes and grilled halloumi - great start! Mains were sweetcorn fritters and mushroom chipotle. Very happy customers.

As a family of vegetarians it's always good to find a restaurant that caters for veggies. However to find a vegetarian / vegan restaurant is something special, especially when the food is this good. Not the normal veggie option but quality food that tastes as good as it looks. Atmosphere is good, staff attentive but not overly so and a... More

I may have over anticipated my visit to The Gate. It's rare to find truly amazing vegetarian restaurants (the only one that comes to mind is Terre a Terre in Brighton). But I'd read good things about this place and in many ways they were all true. The food was tasty and attractive - but the portions were small. And... More

My wife and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Gate having last been 9 years. For a vegetarian restaurant the menu is very varied and is clearly labelled for anything that is or could be vegan and gluten-free. I had the green dragon; freshly sliced veg, avocado, tofu and a teriyaki sauce. Incredible. Fresh, crunchy and... More

Went with a group of friends for dinner yesterday. Shared three starters - the leek tart, miso glazed aubergine and halloumi, all of which were nice. I had the dragon salad for main, which was ok, but nothing special. We shared some sides of polenta chips, cauliflower with tahini and sweet potato wedges, which again, were ok but nothing special.... More

Restaurant was tucked away - maybe that is a plus. Unusual décor but it all seemed to work. Service was excellent. Be sure to book in advance. We had an early dinner and when we had finished all of the tables were taken. Plenty of choices and being a 'meat free' zone, no having to ask about preparation and cooking.

Great evening out with friends The Gate restaurant that has been running for many years and is as fresh and as busy today as when it opened. The menu is autism friendly as it is created using sight words so people with a learning disability can select their choice by seeing the main ingredients in pictures. Interesting seasonal vegetarian restaurant... More

My boyfriend is a big meat eater (I'm a veggie) so was a bit hesitant when he suggested eating here. But he was wholly won over by the amazing food. The Gate expertly demonstrates vegetarian food can be delicious, flavourful and healthy without feeling like something is lacking. There is so much choice on the menu and every dish we... More

I dined solo here for lunch. The menu was extensive and had lots of great choice! I had a leek tart for a starter and a tofu salad for a main. The staff were attentive and accommodating. I was glad to see they used glass bottles for water. Menu is quite pricey but very fresh.
