Sadly we only visit this area once a year. It's a four drive, so once a year is a regular visit! We were there again this week. The steak was perfect - cooked just as requested and positively full of flavour. Meat is locally sourced. If you are in the area make sure you visit - the welcome and food far surpasses that of any other restaurant in Dolgellau. The wine selection is good too - and not overly priced.

Came here on a wed night and had the steak/wine offer for £30. They forgot the wine at first but this didn't detract from the very friendly approach the waiter had. Food was very very good. Best steak I've had out in a long time!

My wife and I dinned here on Saturday 19th. Now we visit Dolgellau several times a year and each time we say, " we must try The Gate House" but never do.
Well we finally did and we were very pleasantly surprised. We both had steak and were both very pleased with it. Cooked exactly as we ordered. The menu has a few different cuts of steak, fillet, ribeye etc, but it's not terribly clear that you can order any steak with any source etc, etc.
The service was very good, nothing too much trouble, jug of water etc.
If I had to criticises I'd say the back ground music was the wrong type, and a bit intrusive, as the room in echoey it made it difficult to hold a conversation. Also the manager/owner put people in the back room first, which left the main area empty and when you walk in a bit off putting.
If you give it a go, the food is of a very high standard and priced reasonably well, service is good.
It would only need a couple of minor changes and I reckon this placed would be banged out.

This place just doesn't disspoint. After many impressive visits last year it is great to see the Bistro finally open again. We could only wait a night before visiting! We received the usual warm welcome and the food was as good if not better than ever! Without a doubt the best restraunt in Dolgellau. Do yourself a favour and give the place a chance. You will go back over and over again!
