Husband and wife team, Gareth and Heather Lee, welcome you to their recently acquired restaurant, The Gate of Llanfrechfa.

If you didn’t already know they have two other great establishments under their umbrella of Gareth Lee Restaurants Ltd, The Rock and Fountain of Penhow, and Los Reyes of Caerleon.

The pair opened the doors to The Gate on September 8, where guests were invited to sample the restaurants exceptional food in the recently refurbished surroundings.

“The restaurant needed updating,” Heather told Voice.

“We’ve spared no expense in redecorating and furnishing The Gate, where we have a water feature in the top part of the restaurant along with water tanks filled with piranhas.

“We wanted the styling of the venue to reflect the high-quality and calibre of the food served – The Gate is all about opulence and indulgence, something which we feel is lacking as an option for diners to visit within the local and surrounding areas of Newport, Blaenau Gwent and Torfaen.

“Apart from The Celtic Manor, where else can you go to get a proper, 28-day dry aged British steak?

“We dry age our beef ourselves, with a selection of cuts on view in our special dry ager units.

“Not only can you hand pick the meats yourself, you can also see our great team of chefs, led by my wonderful husband Gareth and head chef Robert Sands, cook every meal in our state-of-the-art kitchen by viewing through the open pass that leads to the restaurant.

“Each steak is hand cut and cooked to your liking, and we offer a great selection of steaks to choose from including our 10oz rump, ribeye, sirloin and fillet mignon, as well as our larger options that are not for the feint hearted, such as our 30oz tomahawk and 20oz T-bone.

“I would say our menu has more of a gastro feel to it, with a smidge of fine dining but without the price tag. We want to offer our customers something different, especially for our regulars who frequent other fine establishments.

“The response since opening has been fantastic, and everyone who has tried our new menu has commented on how good it is, there’s nothing better than hearing someone tell you that ‘this is the best steak that I’ve ever eaten’.

“On behalf of Gareth and I, along with our wonderful team here at The Gate, we’d like to thank everyone who come out to support us.”

So, if you’re looking for exceptional quality food that is of a very high standard, which is also very reasonably priced, make your way to The Gate this autumn.
