Great food, great place but I have genuinely never waited so long for food in a restaurant. And the smell of the menu was strangely off putting! Delicious food though!

The Gate remains a great destination for vegetarian food cooked with flair & imagination, with a varied menu at sensible prices. The room is Spartan but there's always a good vibe, as it's usually full. We ate a delicious soup of cauliflower & wild garlic,...More
