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.
Service was very friendly just a bit slow between early courses. We loved the food, atmosphere and the effort of communication before the evening is great attention to detail
Great experience: we chose the 5 course menu and could not be happier with our choice. Incredible combination of flavours! Service was super professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend it!
Amazing service and food! Would definitely recommend it.
Exemplary food and service!
We had a lovely time at Gather E17. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Would highly recommend.
Very sorry to Gather but looking forward to the new venture.
All 5 courses were delicious - my favourite being the 'egg and soldiers' - and the pairing wines/port were the perfect accompaniment. Wonderful service and a great atmosphere. Faultless!
The three of us had a wonderful time at Gathere17. The food was exceptional, beautifully presented, interesting and thoroughly delicious. I particularly loved the lamb dish - amazing. The service was excellent, warm, efficient and enlightening with comprehensive information about each dish. Will certainly come again. A fantastic evening out - we were shocked when we realised it was 11pm - the time had gone so fast! Thanks Gather.
Our favourite place, the best chefs and the warmest service staff. We will miss you so much when you leave.
We had a fabulous dinner at Gather E17 last night. The 5 course tasting menu was innovative, delicious and incredible value. And the unique setting, service and atmosphere were great too. Thank you for a great experience. We were really impressed by everything and only wish we had dined with you sooner.
Really delicious food, wonderful hosts and a lovely atmosphere!! Would definitely recommend
Fun and delicious
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!
