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

I had been so looking forward to visiting the Gate as this was meant to be the highlight of a weekend in London. Unfortunately the only commendable aspect of the visit was the service, which was exemplary. To begin - the drinks. My carafe of wine was warm despite arriving in a cooler. This is because the dimensions of a... More

As always, the Gate surprises with an array of tastes that one did not think possible from vegetables. We had an excellent dinner here, and will, as usual, come back.

Off street location for this unusual setting which looks like a very spacious loft with very high ceilings. If you thought that vegetarian food was bland and boring, think again. The diversity of flavours on the menu is salivating and the actual tasting does not disappoint. We tried the onion tart and the grilled halloumi for starters followed by the... More

Have visited the Gate Hammersmith a number of times with mixed views but tonight's visit means I would not return. The food was average, certainly nothing special compared to other vegetarian restaurants but the service was the clincher. Starter and main courses arrived so quickly one after the other with barely time to take a breath and enjoy our wine.... More

The meals on the menu are so well thoughts and curated that even a meat eater would appreciate them!!! The place itself is also pretty unique. Good for any type of occasions really.

I always wanted to come to The Gate but for some reasons, I never could make it...but a cold evening looking for something to eat, I decided to give it a try with my wife, well......I am glad we did, from the first minute we walked in until we left, everything was perfect. The food, the drinks and the services.... More
