I came into the Gate prepared to dislike it but it won me over with the weird mix of jazz tinged Muzak peppered with Christmas songs covered in styles incongruous with the originals (like The Shins doing Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmastime and sounding a lot like the Pet Sounds era Beach Boys).

More of a restaurant than a pub, I probably could have talked to one of the suits but opted to sit near the kitchen door and watch as the waitresses emerged therefrom chewing desperately so they could swallow the portion nicked from the plates they were delivering.  Like I said, I warmed to this place.
