Goddard Park Community Primary School, Welcombe Avenue, Park North, Swindon, SN3 2QN

All of our hot food is freshly prepared to order, so at busy times it may take a little longer.

Allergen Notice: All our food is prepared in a kitchen where nuts, gluten and other allergens are present. If you have a food allergy please let us know before ordering. Full food allergen information can be provided on request.

Mission: The Gate is a project of Swindon Night Shelter and aims to tackle the roots that cause homelessness and help prevent it before it begins. We encourage a safe space to share needs and struggle as and when they arrive.
