Vegetarian Main Courses
The Gate is not a specialist Vegetarian Restaurant, but we do try to offer a range of tasty dishes to our Vegetarian (& occasional Vegan) customers.
You will always find at least two vegetarian dishes on the main menu and at least one more on the Daily Specials Board. In addition, the chefs are always happy to put something together for you if you simply don't fancy what's on offer - assuming that they have the raw ingredients in stock.
So, if there's something you particularly fancy and you can give us a call a few days in advance, we'll do our best to get what-ever you have identified as your favourite vegetarian ingredient and cook it to your specification. Alternatively, ask your server when you arrive and they'll relay your request to the chefs.... We'll do what we can with the ingredients available to us on the day.
Similarly, Vegans are catered foron an ad-hoc/on request basis.

The Daily Vegetarian Special
We occasionally offer Vegetarian dishes on our menu that have Parmesan cheese as a garnish. We do recognise that Parmesan cheese is not a vegetarian food item and this additional garnish may offend some strict vegetarians.
On the other hand, it has also proved a popular addition for some Vegetarians.
It will always be clearly stated on the menu if a dish contains Parmesan cheese.
Just let us know and it will be omitted from your dish.
