The Gate, Islington

The Gate, Islington

It’s always refreshing to see a new vegetarian restaurant open up in London, but seldom does it actually have anything exciting or creative and when they are creative, they often forget how to add any flavour to the dishes. The Gate was one of London’s first all vegetarian restaurants, trailblazing the scene sine 1989 and even a […]
