About Bishop's Gate Hotel
The AA Rosette Awarded Gown Restaurant opens for service from 17.00 and is a refreshing addition to the Derry restaurant scene.
7 London Street also serves evening meals from 17.00, this is used as an extension of The Gown Restaurant but can also be reserved for private use.
Fronting London Street, in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter, “The Gown” is the culinary focal point of Bishop’s Gate Hotel offering seasonally inspired menus of locally sourced ingredients, expertly prepared by the Executive Chef and his talented team.
This vibrant eatery has several original features including the original wall panelling which has been superbly restored to create a charming dinner venue which oozes character and delivers a delightful ambience.
Signature dishes include char grilled locally sourced steaks and fresh seafood from Greencastle Pier.
As the menu is re-worked several times per year to incorporate seasonality and showcase fresh local produce, the flavours and themes are constantly fresh and exciting, promising a sensational dining experience on every occasion.
Diners have the option of a-la-carte cuisine or a two or three-course set menu, ideal for pre and post theatre meals. Advance booking is highly recommended.
We have eaten here a few times before but this time the food was not as good being generally a little over cooked and dry. I am not sure I would make the effort to go back for that standard of food.
Loved everything about this hotel .Every single member of staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were spotless.Great shower and impressive Rituals toiletries, ,comfortable bed and dressing gown and slippers were a nice touch . Dinner was excellent. Bar was very comfortable and had great cocktail menu. Location is excellent and Valet parking well worth extra. Will definitely be back .
A great hotel, excellent food and wonderful service from all the staff. Our third visit and we’ll be back!
Absolutely love this Hotel. It is everything that is best about Derry/Londonderry. Upon arrival, you cannot help noticing how well the Hotel has been finished. It is clean, tidy, and has that "New" feeling to it without compromising the old building that houses the Hotel. Very good job done by the Architect in marrying new and fresh, with age and serenity. Aside from from the building itself, it is the people, the Hotel staff, that make this place so welcoming. Every member of staff I have come across has a friendly and accommodating demeanour, which is certainly not contrived. The natural warmth of the staff makes you feel like an "old hand" as soon as you arrive. After a few moments there, you feel as if these people have known you all your life. The welcoming atmosphere is both humbling and very much appreciated. My heart felt gratitude to Michaell (sorry if the spelling is incorrect), Amanda, Victoria, and all the other members of staff who made it such an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Well done all at Bishops Gate Hotel. Keep it up!
Our meal was absolutely amazing
Excellent staff fantastic food and atmosphere superb Anne
We were delighted with every aspect of our meal!
The most gorgeous food, was soo lovely. Drinks were tasty too. Staff very attentive and friendly. Only thing needing mentioning I got an email confirming 7pm booking but when we arrived 7.30 was noted in the book. Fine as we were early but miscommunication somewhere
Such friendly staff, my fiancé and myself were in the restaurant to celebrate booking our wedding with Bishops Gate Hotel. All staff were aware, and made us feel do special, congratulating is, and wishing us good luck, just set the celebration off. The food was incredible. 5 star. Thank you to all the staff

Impeccable service and beautiful food. This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last
This dinner was organised to celebrate my daughter's 40th Birthday and from beginning to end it handled by Bishop's Gate Hotel far beyond my expectations! Thank you for your terrific food, attention to detail and excellent service. Geraldine McGuinness
We had a wonderful night in this hotel. Staff very friendly and efficient the food was excellent and it has a lovely old world feel and atmosphere. We will definitely be back and have tried to book again but it's not surprisingly been booked up but we will keep trying.
We had an amazing lunch for 16 to celebrate my nan's 90th. She returned to Londonderry, where she was born on Bishop Street, from the UK, for the first time in 83 years. The hotel and especially the private dining room made a great setting for a very special meal. The staff could not do enough for us and added to the occasion. The food was faultless.
Lovely atmosphere, fabulous menu, reasonable price and brilliant service. 10/10
Had a wonderful dinner,
Everything about my wife's special night was excellent, from the food, service and wonderful staff. Well done and thank you
The check in staff were so helpful, pleasant and made us feel really welcome. You can tell they are regularly winning best receptionist awards! The room was beautifully decorated and well presented. Loved the view! Dinner reservation was for 8 but it was 8.30 when we sat. It was very busy and we didn't mind waiting. The location is so good inside the Derry walls, overall a great experience.
Really enjoyed the evening will be going back again
A really positive surprise.
We celebrated my mother's 70th birthday in the London street room and the evening was fantastic. Food and atmosphere was great but the staff in particular deserve a special mention. They were extremely helpful when we were organising and arranged a TV for us to show a video. On the evening our server Shannon was excellent, she kept us well looked after but also gave us space to enjoy the evening. Would definitely return, fab job to the full team from front of house, serving staff and chefs!!
When we arrived there were only 2 other diners in the restaurant and we were seated right beside them which made us and them feel very awkward but this was quickly rectified when I asked to be moved. I just think I shouldn't have had to ask nobody would want to sit so close to the only other diners in an empty restaurant. There were no other diners for an hour.
Excellent service with very friendly staff. The food was gorgeous and our very large group (13) had a wonderful evening. It is one of my favourite places to eat in town!
