Perched atop Richmond Hill in Surrey, the beautiful Richmond Gate Hotel is one of the most elegant establishments in Richmond. Located in one of London’s western suburbs, this fabulous hotel is just a short tube journey from the West End of London yet boasts a tranquil and almost country like ambience. Local attractions include the beautiful Richmond Park with its acres of greenery and fallow deer while the magnificent Kew Gardens are also just a stone’s throw away. The River Thames meanders its way through Richmond and the fabulous Hampton Court Palace isn’t too far either.
The Richmond Gate Hotel is a superb choice for dining in the area, offering both formal and informal options to hotel guests and non-residents. The lovely Gates Bar dishes up a casual dining experience and is a great place to unwind and relax after a busy day. The hotel’s Head Chef Paulo Sousa has devised a brilliant menu for both the restaurant and Gate Bar, offering a wealth of choice and quality to diners.
The Ploughman’s lunch is a classic bar snack featuring cheddar, goat’s and Stilton cheeses along with fruit chutney, roasted ham, boiled egg and pickled onions all served with the crustiest of bread. Another great dish is the game coarse terrine with fruit chutney and crust bread while the deep fried calamari with garlic mayonnaise always goes down well with a glass of wine or a cold beer.
Gates Bar is an elegant and sophisticated hotel bar yet offers a lovely relaxed ambience. Classic style armchairs and sofas feature whilst long beige drapes frame the pretty windows. With the air of an elegant drawing room, Gates Bar fits in well with the rest of the hotel’s surroundings.
