It was a great surprise. I've discovered the restaurant through the net and the food was amazing. Food is tasty and you don't even notice it is a vegetarian food. Highly recommended for vegetarian and non vegetarian.

My husband and 2 daughters (9,14) visited England in August/2016 We stayed in London for the first 5 days and went north to visit family for the last part. Part of our vacation experiences are based on food. We love yummy food. You could call us foodies. We are 1/4 vegan, 1/2 vegetarian, while I am the omnivore. You can... More

My friend and I were going to the Hammersmith Apollo which is literally a one minute walk from this really different restaurant. While being small it's certainly serves great food. It's vegetarian but you really wouldn't have known. Didn't miss meat! Very good, would recommend.

Booked at table for two for 8pm, arrived about 10 minutes early and requested to be sat on one of the side tables, as opposed to being just by the noisy waiter station, which turned out to be fine. We ordered some tap water. For another 20 minutes nobody came to talk to us, neither has the water arrived. Restaurant... More

4th Visit on 14th of January with family and friends for lunch. Reservation is must for this place otherwise you do not get to dine. We ordered a few fruit Juices and a couple of mocktails all pretty good. All 8 different starters and main winter menu meals were well beyond expectations- Vegetarian food served in an English restaurant. We... More

Had been told great things about The Gate by friends who live in the area so we dropped in for lunch on a weekday and had a very mixed experience. I ordered the Quinoa & Beetroot burger with Polenta Chips and my girlfriend ordered the Sweetcorn Fritter with a Poached Egg. The burger was great... it almost tasted meaty, juicy... More

Although the service can be a bit downpaced from time to time... The food remains up to standard. I guess they could get a bit more playfull with the selection as they are only rotating oldies goldies, the dishes that are proven along the years they have been opened. Get plaful pips!!!

I dined there with a friend last eve. I was very disappointed in an extremely slow service and the FOH team did seem stressed amd stretched. I didn't get a drink until 40 minutes after arrival. My fellow diners soup - Butternut Squash - was very thin and watery & not hearty as Squash should be - we did feedback... More
