Great improvement. Waitress was very good
We hadn't been to the Gate for a while due to bad dining experiences but was pleasantly surprised to find that the food was great and the staff so much pleasanter making us feel like valued customers. Well done. We will return.
Staff were friendly, service pretty good. Atmosphere is OK, insufficient acoustic dampening so quite echoey. Beer was good. Food was average. Belly pork didn't seem to be belly pork, more like dried out oork steak with a thin strip of crackling. Looks pre-made and reheated on premises. Typical pub grub I suppose, shouldn't expect much!
We had a good evening and everybody enjoyed their meal. The waiter, although very pleasant and willing, was very inexperienced and I felt he needed more training. On arrival he was sorting out some cutlery and left a drawer of cutlery on the floor to show us to our table which was a hazard I had to point out to an elderly relative to avoid. I felt this should have been put away first. What was nice was that after I had paid the bill we chatted a long time afterwards and no one hassled us to leave. We will certainly come again! As the evening progressed it did become very noisy and I found it difficult to hear other members of my party. One criticism of the food was that my accompanying salad looked some tired with limp pea shoots. A salad should always look fresh.
Very welcoming. Good atmosphere. Tasty selection of food. Excellent cheerful service by our waitress.
Nice food, friendly efficient staff
Lovely food and pretty good service. It was very busy so it was a little slow to get the food. The waiters were all quite young but very pleasant and did a pretty good job. The location works well for my friends who live both in South London and Hertfordshire so convemient.
It's a very erratic experience. Some days food is great. Others not so. Lovely setting and decor
Good food and service
