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 occasional pop-up dining events during the year -
sumptuous 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.
If you are not already on our mailing list, we suggest subscribing
so that you can be kept up to date with new events.
Do you have gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan foods?
Yes, we are experienced at providing for special dietary requirements -
please discuss your needs with us when you book.
Are there disabled facilities?
The restaurant is on the ground floor, with a small step down into the building.
Our only toilet is on the first floor, up a slightly uneven staircase.
Is there parking nearby?
Yes, there is some on-street parking right outside, unrestricted in the evening.
Otherwise there are car parks at Station Road and Court Street, both a short walk
and free after 6:00pm.
Do you accept credit / debit cards?
Yes, we take most major cards, except AmEx and Diners.
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!
