“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

From the outside The gate looks like a dodgy pub, most people just walk / drive pass it... Inside wheil you can tell it was a pub, it has been done out very simple. It works

This is Italian done the traditional way, keep it simple, use good ingredients. The service is very attentive & friently. The food is very good & plentiful.

Dont go there unless you are hungry!!

“good food, good location good price”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Have eaten several times at The Gate with friends and have never been disappointed. the staff are friendly, the food is freshly cooked and generous and is great value for money. I think this is a real gem in Saffron Walden, a little bit quieter than some places to eat in Saffron but if you haven't tried it yet give it a go.

“nice food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

they do a tasty pizza, although this place looks like a pub from the outside, it certainly does not have a pub atmosphere inside.

“Great food and very reasonably priced”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Ignore the drab exterior, this restaurant is well decorated inside and the food is excellent. I ordered the rib eye steak which was beautifully tender and other dishes for other members of our party looked delicious. They also have a wood burning oven for pizzas which look great too. I'll definitely be returning soon.
Make sure you book in advance as this place is very busy.

Invited to a small birthday gathering here, never really venture over to Saffron Walden. What a pleasant find - food excellent and nice staff. Good portions at a realistic price - thank you
