SquareMeal Review of The Gate Hammersmith

Bronze Award

An invigoratingly inventive and "incredibly busy" veggie veteran set in a converted artist’s studio behind the Hammersmith Apollo, The Gate is accessed via a labyrinth of courtyards, hallways and staircases. Following its 2013 refurb, the pale-hued dining room now seems brighter and lighter than before with its big picture windows, a high vaulted ceiling and one wall artily decorated with a collage of wooden blocks. Meanwhile, the kitchen continues to scour the globe for "subtly flavoured", eclectic ideas with a refreshing seasonal bias – think pickled fennel and cucumber tagliatelle with pomegranate molasses, red chard and mint or sweet potato and sweetcorn tortillas with goats’ cheese, baked beetroot, guacamole and black bean salsa. There are mezze platters and creative salads too, plus mainstream desserts such as bitter chocolate tart with vanilla-poached pear. The excellent wine list is also worth a splurge.

Fantastic Vegetarian food for Vegetarians and Meat Eaters
18 December 2013  
I am vegetarian and my 3 friends are meat eaters and everyone thoroughly enjoyed a great evening at The Gate Hammersmith. I have been to the branch in Islington which is also very good. The food was delicious with lots of subtle flavours. I love the way the menu changes with the seasons and it was quite different to my visit in the summer. The food is really well presented and not over carb-heavy as some vegetarian meals can be. We had friendly service, did have to prompt the waiter to order drinks but he soon came over after we asked. It was incredibly busy and a great buzzy atmosphere. The food is excellent with a wine list to match – I recommend you book before you come as it does get very busy.

I'm not a vegetarian, almost the opposite… however I was extremelly surprised by the flavour, spices and textures of the food! The service was very attentive and kind! The atmosphere is nice, it was 2/3 full on a rainy monday night, and so is the decoration.
