Just had lunch at Gather - I'm lucky enough to eat at many good restaurants through my job. This is right up there! Fantastic food, presentation and really friendly staff. The best Souffle I have ever eaten! So impressive and will definitely be going back.

It was a birthday celebration so we went for the full tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything we ate was amazing, from the amuse bouche to the macaroons we were given with our coffee. Everything in this lovely seasonal menu was cooked to perfection, great...combinations of flavours in each dish, a brilliant range of textures, (which is something I really appreciate), and all beautifully presented. The staff were helpful yet unobtrusive, nothing was too much trouble. I can't believe this restaurant is run by such a young team.... if this is the start of their careers, the sky is the limit! Had to bring some of our puddings home because we were so stuffed. Would recommend this lovely little restaurant for any celebrations you have planned and I will be returning as often as I can.More

I visited with 2 friends last weekend. We had the half Tasting Menu and it was delicious . although I felt that the dessert was rather stodgy when combined with the porkbelly. Generally thought excellent and beautifully presented food. We felt that the front of...house staff seemed slightly inattentive for such a small high end restaurant - wine glasses left empty, water not refilled. We probably would have ordered another bottle of wine had we been asked. We enjoyed it all though and will definitely return. Thankyou. one extra comment: I have moved to totnes quite recently and have avoided Gather because I feel that it appears cold and unwelcoming from the road - inside it is NOT - but I wonder whether more intimate lighting on the tables and slightly more privacy would benefit you?More

We had the full tasting menu, the food was beautifully presented and tasted as amazing as it looked. The front of house staff explained each dish, I loved the fact that some of the food was foraged and all local. The atmopshere was lovely and...the restaurant was full, I love that you can see Chef's working in the kitchen. I would highly recommend Gather, it was a fantastic experience for us, having never eaten a tasting menu before and not knowing what to expect, I'd definitley go again!More

Visited Gather and had the tasting menu and the wine pairing. Every dish is clearly well thought out and combines food and tastes that are considered and put together with great pride and presented with a clear explanation about the ingredients and what we are...supposed to taste. The restaurant is quite small plainly decorated with lighting that was much to bright. Now, I may have a sense of taste that is not as discerning as others, but I didn’t want to ‘wow’ at anything I put in my mouth, which was disappointing. It was all as it the food was part of a culinary science experiment and we were testing the results. The presentation was efficiently carried out but in a rather rote sterile way. The wine paring was very good, although £45 for five very small wines and a saki, was probably a bit steep. For me eating out should be pleasurable and whilst we expected something different, it somehow will fell short and all felt a bit of a let down for us. I guess the bill for a tasting menu was ok at £200 for two, but would I go back? Probably not.More

We enjoyed a relaxed evening of carefully crafted dishes. Each dish was beautifully prepared with locally sourced ingredients. I think some items were foraged. We enjoyed every bite. Good wine. Very pleasant staff.

Great food offering quality over quantity - lots of attention to detail. It was quiet when we visited as it was midweek lunch but this meant we weren’t rushed and food took a good amount of time to be served. We will return in a...bigger group with our foodie friends, thanks guys!More

We had the half tasting menu. It’s the second time I’d been and I hadn’t been very impressed the first, so really tried to come with an open mind! Food: Crab starter was very tasty. Lamb with wild garlic and fricassee, incredible, one of the...best dishes I’ve had in ages. Cheese course wasn’t amazing, just seemed like a bit of ok cheese and a cheese straw with it. Milk pudding was incredible. Pairing wines and drinks: Really excellent pairings, not just wine, umeji, and an amazing cocktail. Service: Although very polite, the serving staff just weren’t switched on, kept bringing the wrong things to people, didn’t bring us water, kept forgetting drinks, and just seemed quite confused. All in all, a really delicious meal, bar some very minor things. I just think they need some more experienced front of house staff. I live locally and I’d go back again with the hope it’ll keep improving.More

The tasting menu of the month was exceptional,every course brought beautiful flavours, perfectly...cooked and put together, incredible flavours,hard to know which was best! The bread and chicken skin butter started the meal and I knew it would be a great meal! If only I could buy the pain au raise!! Well see be all, I will be telling everyone to go here,can't wait to visit again, you deserve alot of praise!More
