About Gather E17
Gather E17 is a pop up restaurant based in an unusual venue, a craft jeans factory in the Blackhorse Lane area of Walthamstow, East London. We are a husband and wife team running a variety of events.
Martin Major, Director and Head Chef, is a Michelin trained chef and has spent nearly 20 years in kitchens. Charlotte Major, Director and Front of House Manager creates a unique atmosphere in this striking venue. Come and dine amongst the sewing machines and rolls of denim, look into our open kitchen and watch Martin at work.
We use seasonal, British and locally sourced ingredients where ever possible using some fresh ingredients cultivated in our allotment only a few minutes walk from the restaurant.
Amazing food, super friendly and attentive staff, dog friendly plus a unique location made this a great spot for a Sunday brunch. The chicken waffles are a delicious must have and omg that sea salt chocolate brownie... one of the best I’ve ever tasted! I really want to come back for dinner!
Great food and friendly service
What a sensational night. The food was top class - Michelin standard but at a unbelievable price. We went for the five course menu (£42 pp), and added the cheese course to share. Every dish was different, colourful, rich, tasty, incredibly presented - the duck with orange caramel and artichoke risotto with truffle were standout dishes. The service was good, although our drinks didn’t always come on time and we struggled to find the place initially. But overall all it was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend anyone to go. I can’t wait for a permanent location.
The food at Gather is outstanding and the brunch dishes are a mix of classics and something a little different. Much thought has gone into each item on the menu. The setting at Blackhorse Ateliers is really unusual and very cool. We received a wonderfully warm welcome from Charlotte and all of the staff were lovely. As it filled up we waited a little to get more drinks etc but nothing major and nothing to take away from a genuinely delicious and enjoyable brunch. I’m glad that Martin and Charlotte are looking for a permanent set up in Walthamstow and wish them luck.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Gather E17 and can’t wait to go back again. Delicious food and detailed explanations of what we were about to eat, wonderful service, relaxed/informal atmosphere (super important for us) and a nice added extra to be in a denim workshop! Great to also know we were consuming locally sourced ingredients. Can’t fault it! We recently moved to Walthamstow and this restaurant was recommended to us. We are so glad we managed to try it before it closes at the end of March. Truly hope Martin and Charlotte will open again soon.
Just can’t get enough of this place!
The service and food here are always impeccable (and who can argue with pre-dessert?). The room was a little cold but I assume this was unavoidable due to the factory setting and to be honest, I’m happy to sacrifice a bit of heat in favour of eating in such unique surroundings.
What a fantastic pop up! My husband and I came ahead of baby 2 arriving and had such a wonderful meal. Food and service were second to none and the quirky venue added to the experience. Was great to be able to see the chefs at work - impressive to see them serve so many dishes so consistently. A personal highlight, being 8 months pregnant, was the recommendation of a blue cheese I could actually eat - total game changer. Can’t wait to visit again once you find new premises. Thanks once again for a fabulous evening.
Incredible experience! We loved every minute - everything we ate and everything we drank! Can’t wait for a permanent restaurant to open!
Amazing experience, food and service
The staff were super friendly and knowledgable and the food was exceptional. We had 5 courses with the wine pairings which complimented each course very well. This is a really great place for a special meal.
Absolutely amazing food and an incredible dining experience, can’t wait to come back again!
If you havent been. Just go. Got 4 bookings already. Its tasty, friendly, warm and innovative
Was hugely impressed by the food, and loved the location. The arctic blast from the window wasn’t much fun, but was solved by the arrival of the portable heater. My only (and tentative) criticism is that I think the gap between courses was slightly too long. I think two-and-a-half hours for the tasting menu would have been just right, rather than the three hours we had, wouldn’t
Wonderful brunch, in a unique place. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Really enjoyed our brunch - sad there's not much longer to go in the current venue but looking forward to seeing what comes next!
London's best kept secrets. Beautiful, delicious food in a unique setting, perfect for friends family and good times!!
Excellent food and wine. Great service.
An outstanding evening, featuring cooking of a very high standard and matched very well with excellent wine. We were in good hands all evening.
We had a really fantastic meal. Every course was delicious and the wine pairings were also great. One of our favourite places to eat in London.
Great food and service
I’ve been to Gather countless times - it’s everything I want in a restaurant. Fantastic ambiance, breathtaking food and a super unusual, interesting location. If you haven’t been, expect to become a regular after your first visit.
The food here is absolutely fantastic, one of the best meals I have ever had. Each dish is so carefully put together and you can taste the quality of the ingredients in every mouthful. Add this to the unique setting and warm service and you really have a special evening on your hands. Get the 5 courses, you won’t regret it!
Delicious food and warm, friendly, knowledgable service. We'll definitely be back
A fantastic meal. Would definitely go again.
