Went midweek for lunch and it was so quiet that there wasn't any atmosphere. Food was good although a little overpriced. The staff were polite but they didn't seem very welcoming. Don't think we will return.

This is the second visit in 6 days to The Gate and on each occasion the meals were outstanding. The actual restaurant is tastefully decorated and has that comfy ambiance about it. The service is first class and the meals cooked to perfection
