This pub could be good but unfortunately it does not think toilet hygiene is of importance to its cliental. The toilets stink and I mean stink! They also seem to think soap and hot water are not required. This wasn't a one off I have visited 4 or 5 times in the last few years because of closeness to work. They sell food and the pizzas aren't bad but sort the toilets!

Situated only minutes from Alexandra Palace in London’s Wood Green, The Gate combines traditional pub with modern bar and restaurant to great effect. Particularly popular with locals, The Gate has an easy, laid back atmosphere well suite to those after work drinks, lazy Sunday lunches and thank-goodness-it’s-Friday moments. While the exterior of The Gate suggests a traditional Victorian boozer, within you’ll find a bright, airy Italian pizzeria right down to red and white checked tablecloths and summertime al fresco terrace. While pizza is closest to the heart of The Gate’s chefs – the menu features a strong selection of authentic style stone baked pizzas – there’s also a whole host of other choices, from delicious hamburgers to sharing platters and salads. The drinks list meanwhile ranges from continental bottled lagers to fine wines and classic and contemporary cocktails. With a chilled, eclectic music policy and bar-restaurant set up, The Gate is a perfect all-night venue.
