A vibrant, modern-day brasserie with all-day dining, serving up seasonally-inspired a la carte dishes, with a particular emphasis on comfort food and modern cooking techniques.
John Pollard, Chef Director, has developed The Gate’s kitchen concept. A Modern-day brasserie with all-day dining, serving up seasonally-inspired a la carte dishes, with a particular emphasis on comfort food and modern cooking techniques.
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 lobster arancini, house-cured salmon, the Harbour Fish Pie, the indulgent Bavette and don’t get us started on the plant based and grains 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 counter top, sumptuous leather panelling, chrome metal work 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 DJ’s (Friday & Saturday 8pm – 1am), 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.

"We stopped here on our way home after a lovely walk through Richmond park... We had the roast chicken and roast beef and both were delicious. I will definitely be back, perfect Sunday"
"Lovely restaurant with a classy but relaxed atmosphere. We came with friends for lunch and the food was fantastic - lots of great veggie options too, would highly recommend for brunch, drinks, lunch or dinner"
"We had lunch and then dinner here because we didn't want to leave. The service was exceptional, the food is honestly unbeatable"
John Pollard joined the Harbour Hotels Group having worked in renowned kitchens such as J Sheekey, Scotts of Mayfair, and the Rivington Gill. He then developed Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger brands.
In 2009, John spearheaded the Pizza East opening in Shoreditch for the Soho House group, revolutionising the food scene in East London with simple food, high end ingredients and perfect execution.

Now at Harbour, John and his team advocate locally grown produce, farm raised, wild-caught seafood and farm assured meats to expertly make traditional favourites and modern classics with a contemporary twist.
Although the restaurant has no private dining room as such, groups may be hosted on a large table in the restaurant itself.
Our chefs have created a number of additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus, or choose our ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style to the centre of the table. Private diners may also choose from the restaurant's a la carte menu.
This year, why not buy them an experience they’ll always remember, like a hot stone massage, a cocktail masterclass, or a decadent afternoon tea?
