Our Story

The Gate was established in 1989 by Michael and Adrian Daniel, 2 brothers with no formal training who knew nothing about running a restaurant, they just knew what they liked to eat and that food should be celebrated. They opened their first restaurant in Hammersmith and now have 3 more locations in London: Islington, Marylebone, and St John’s Wood.

Our Vision & Mission

At The Gate, we love making wonderful food & exceeding our customers’ expectations. We create inspiring vegetarian and vegan food for everyone to enjoy time and time again. Our goal is to share the infinite possibilities of experiencing and enjoying plant-based food.
We do our best to grow sustainably and adapt to the needs of the community.
We’re a global and inclusive family. Everyone’s welcome!

Our Values

We welcome everyone to The Gate and we celebrate the diversity of our staff and customers. We treat everyone fairly and equally whist valuing the differing contributions and perspectives of our staff, customers, suppliers and everyone that we come into contact with.

At The Gate we meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

At The Gate we show compassion, kindness and understanding towards others, we are understanding of any situation and always ready to help.

At The Gate we are able and willing to change ourselves in response to changed circumstances and a changed environment, and we are also able to anticipate future changes in advance.
