Welcome to the Gateway
Fresh food, cooked with love, in intimate, friendly surroundings
We love living and working here on the edge of Dartmoor,
where we have an abundance of local growers and suppliers
whose produce helps us to lovingly create delicious, wholesome
and seasonally inspired food.
Chef Samantha Sastry's Indian heritage and creative appetite are reflected in our emphasis on Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine,
as well as dishes from other countries and closer to home.
Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes
are naturally a big part of our menus.
The Gateway is available for
private parties of up to 20 guests.
"Quite simply, the food was beautiful.
I absolutely recommend this restaurant"
"This was the finest, most delicious, clever and authentic meal I have eaten in a very long time"
Rather than opening continuously,
we offer 3 or 4 pop-up dining events during the year -
sumptuous taster menus with a variety of dishes
and a unique range of flavours.
Every element is cooked fresh here in our kitchens
by chef Samantha Sastry.
We have a licensed bar with a range of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails.
This year we started with a Gateway to India event,
based around the Southern Indian thali; during the summer we offered the Gateway to the Middle East, with a generous spread of sharing plates
Our current event, the Gateway to Korea, is our take on the exciting variety of flavours and dishes in Korean street food, and is fully booked.
The Gateway to India
...will be our next pop-up event in February and March 2023.

We took over the long-established Gateway Tea Room in 2015, breathing new life into the 17th century building, and creating a menu with traditional elements as well as more adventurous and
Every winter we transformed the tea room into an authentic South Indian thali restaurant, and last year we decided to make the transformation permanent and offer globally-inspired food along with homely meals in a comfortable restaurant setting.
We are blessed on Dartmoor with a wealth of mindful producers who, like us, believe that local, low-impact, sustainable food and drink supplies should be the norm. For us, locally sourced means just up the road!
