Introducing our newest concept, The Gate, Kitchen, Bar, Terrace. Light, seasonal and contemporary dining with a passion and commitment to flavour, combined with a vibrant bar serving up seriously good cocktails. The Gate creates what can only be described as a real neighbourhood vibe. Great food and drink, unpretentious and amazing value.

It offers beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. The glasshouse drenches the room with an abundance of natural daylight, opening up perfectly onto the garden terrace, perfect for a spot of al fresco dining. The garden feel effortlessly continues inside where the interior artfully combines vivid colour, plant life and bold patterns together. Statement lighting, plush banquettes and more than a touch of a botanical theme create a bar and dining experience that blend seamlessly into each other.

The Gate Kitchen, Bar and terrace style is relaxed, inviting and fun. We want you to get comfortable and stay for a while. We look forward to

Great atmosphere and decor. The bar and restaurant were very busy (it was a Saturday night) and were struggling to cope with the numbers. Our waiter in the restaurant, however, did an excellent job of managing the situation and kept us informed with what was going on.

I’m 60+ and went with a friend to try this new restaurant. The food was good and reasonably priced but it was very noisy. There were several babies, despite being a Saturday night, and at times they were crying. At one point two youngsters arrived with scooters. The music didn’t help it just added to the noise levels. I’m sure the younger generation would love it but it was not conducive to conversation and I doubt I will be returning.

Great service - very kind and helpful. We had 8 of us for an afternoon tea and everything from first calling to enquire to booking was nice. The decor is great and the food was good quality so also value for money. Nice DJ - good mix of people there. Really enjoyed it

We did cover off our concerns with the manageress after our meal on Friday night. V poor service - twice having to leave the table to fetch a waiter, wine not topped up, orders mistaken, ignored on arrival, sat by constantly opening door to outside, lamp fringe in eyes (really) the list goes on! (Literally)
On the upside- lovely space and could be a very buzzy and upbeat addition to the neighbourhood. At the moment The Ivy and Bingham will have our business.

Disappointed after all the advertising.
Service and food not up to expected standard unfortunately.

The area we sat in had problems with the aircon too so we were uncomfortable whilst eating and management couldn’t resolve the issue.

If these problems could be dealt with this restaurant could create a great dining experience.

We had a group booking for the restaurant. It is beautifully decorated and the food was great. Really tasty and piping hot for all. The service was a bit hit and miss throughout the meal (some bits very good and some very bad), which was a bit of a shame but I would still go back.

We cannot express how much we loved this place. The vibe is amazing and the food (dinner and breakfast) was delicious. The staff were exceptional and made us feel very special and welcome. The décor and furnishings are a real treat and I didn't want to leave. The location is near the park as well as the river so the best of both worlds. A perfect place to eat and socialise.

Great quality food, though ran out of one of the dishes we requested at 3pm? Service initially slightly slow upon arrival but great from there on in, very friendly and upbeat staff. Great atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon.

What a lovely venue, such a bonus to have a gourmet restaurant in Richmond. The decor is so fresh and light, the service was excellent and the meal wonderful. And a joy not to have our conversation drowned by music as in so many other restaurants. We will no doubt be regulars at this special place.

Great setting, they have done a lovely job of creating a contemporary space.
Amazing mains (burger and feather steak) - decent starters(scallops)- the doughnut dessert was not good- very dry and chewy- which was a great shame!
But we really enjoyed our meal!
