The Gate is one of the new premium restaurants situated within Twickenham’s new East Stand development. The restaurant runs over two levels and is styled as a Steakhouse, which is popular with a rugby crowd. This is another large Twickenham facility, with a capacity of over 1,000 guests.
The restaurant is situated on Levels 1 & 2 of the new East Stand. Level 1 of the restaurant has no natural light, it is a dark and atmospheric space, which compliments the steakhouse theme. Level 2 has windows overlooking the hustle and bustle of Rugby Road behind the East Stand.
The décor is basic and industrial, with exposed brickwork & heating & air-conditioning ducts. The wooden tables are what you might expect in a steakhouse, with no fancy tablecloths.
Private tables are available for 2-12 guests.
The tickets provided within The Gate are excellent, situated in the East Lower between the 22m and the halfway line. However, unlike the East Wing and Lock Restaurants, you do not have direct access to the seats from the restaurant.
The facility opens 3.5 hrs before kick-off. Snacks are served on arrival, followed by a 4-course Chop House style menu, where premium cuts of meat and steaks are served. Twickenham Tea is served post-match.
There is a complimentary bar, which includes Champagne throughout the day. Real ales, Guinness and premium lager & spirits are also available. Half-time drinks are also served in the restaurant. The bar closes 90 minutes after the match has ended.
There is a hostess service, which enhances the drinks service.
There are no guest speakers, which is disappointing, however, past players are on hand to socialise with guests.
There are a few TV screens in the restaurant to view other matches but certainly not enough that all guests have a view.
There are no car park passes included in this package, which means guests will have to use public transport, taxis, or source parking themselves in the Twickenham area.
A souvenir match programme is included.
The majority of hospitality options have no strict dress codes, team shirts are generally allowed, however; it is advised to dress smart casual, and according to weather conditions as match seats are outside.
GPS users can get to Twickenham Stadium using the postcode TW2 7BA. If arriving by train, the closest tube stations are Twickenham, Whitton or St Margaret’s.
