“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

What a lovely place for breakfast. All the staff are smiley and attentive. The breakfast is cooked to order but you can have as much as you want as often as you want for one fixed price. The quality of food is good. Would definitely recommend

Thank Nick F

“A three and a half”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

National chain attached to the Eastleigh Premier Inn. Relatively quiet 8.30 onwards on the Monday evening I was there. Food was OK with a menu of plenty of choice but at the end of the day its standard stuff that these chains tend to deliver into their venues frozen. Chicken strips were tasty (or perhaps it was just the Reggae Reggae) whilst the Pedigree Steak Pie had more air than steak. They seem to do good Sundaes for dessert (OK I admit I know they do).

Place itself was nice and modern, decent background music, but a waitress who was functional rather than friendly. Probably unlikely to be back here again but would probably use a Table Table again if in a Premier Inn in future.

Good tasty food well presented at very reasonable prices. Nice decor and comfortable seating. Staff are very attentive and friendly. They have quite a few promotions and a reward scheme.

“Christmas Party Night Brilliant!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

17 of us booked the gateway for Saturday the 7th of december for a family meal and get together. As my parents don't live locally it was an ideal venue as they booked a room for the night too. It was a 3 course set menu with 3 different options, £15.99 for adults and £6.99 for kids. I booked this with Andrea and liased with her throughout as menus had to be pre- ordered with deposits.
There were party poppers, balloons Christmas crackers and Santa hats on every table. There was a d j setting up too and room had been made for a little dance floor. The meals were brought out efficiently by Andrea who had a list of names and meals so was addressing everybody by name eg Turkey for Bill.. The food was great and enjoyed by everybody. There was plenty of atmosphere with laughter and high spirits, balloons flying around from other tables etc. After the meal a few of us went on the dance floor and spent the evening dancing. We finally left at 12.15am from arriving at 7.00pm. All in all we had a fabulous night, it was great value for money and it was all down to the staff who were simply great. Brilliant Night! Thanks Andrea and your team.. See you next year.

“Bad service”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

Rude staff all to easy to push single people in to the bar rather than give a table , I watched other people comming in that had not booked a table given a table straight away,

All the single people was told 2 and half hour wait for table or find one in bar and sort your self out ,
