A vibrant, all-day kitchen, bar and terrace on the edge of Richmond Park, with a neighbourhood-hangout vibe. Serving up seasonally-inspired dishes and the best cocktails around.
John Pollard, Chef Director, has developed The Gate’s kitchen concept. John and his team are the masters at uniting fresh, locally grown produce with wild-caught seafood and farm-assured meats. On the menu, you’ll find dishes such as heritage beetroot coupled up with punchy stilton, the finest beef carpaccio, sea bass accompanied by the zingiest fennel and orange salad and don’t even get us started on the plant-based grain dishes or seriously sensational desserts.
The Gate Kitchen is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner every day.
The Gate, Bar is a space for locals and guests to come together, relax, work and play, serving coffee and cocktails all day, every day. Perch at the impressive bar with its marble countertop, sumptuous leather panelling, chrome metalwork and enjoy a glass of fizz. The glassroom, garden terrace and lounge area offer a diverse range of drinking spaces.
Throughout the day the vibe is relaxed, enjoying coffees, cocktails and a bite to eat if you fancy. As day turns to night the atmosphere shifts and The Gate transforms into a vibrant bar, with live music and DJs (Friday & Saturday 8pm – 12am), alongside our inspiring events programme. Whether you’re a cocktail kind of guy or girl or someone who enjoys a great draft beer, you’ll love it.
Afternoon Tea at Harbour is an indulgent and tasty treat. Featuring pretty pastries, homemade scones and delectable cakes, alongside fabulous finger sandwiches and savoury snacks. It’s the perfect accompaniment of a flute of fizz or a dangerously good cocktail or two!
Served daily from 2.30pm until 4.30pm.
