We'd never been to Richmond before and arrived to blissfully sunny weather. The feel of the town and hotel is a bit foreign - reminds me of a French village we stayed in some years ago! We stayed in the Napoli suite which has a huge free standing bath and also has a huge double bed. The bed was a... More

Lovely hotel and lovely room. The hotel owner is very welcoming and has a good sense of humour. Nice outside garden to sit in and have a drink. Breakfast was superb. The staff are so helpful, and nothing is a problem. Would highly recommend.

A very good stay overnight at the Frenchgate Restaurant & Hotel where we also ate in the restaurant. David was very helpful and welcoming, and the bedrooms we booked were well appointed with that touch of high quality and luxury. The dinner in the restaurant was excellent. There was good choice for everyone in our group of 3 and the... More

This is the second time we have been to this establishment the food here is first class and the service is friendly. Really good town setting and a nice outside garden for those really warm evenings. Parking can be a little tricky but a nice venue for a pleasant meal for any occasion.

This hotel is a period property which I am sure presented some challenges to the owners when they decorated and furnished it. We parked easily on the road at the front of the hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in room 5 which has been beautifully furnished and faces the garden. It was immaculately clean, the bed comfortable and we... More

What a fantastic hotel. Only 8 rooms but the room we were in was very nice. BUT the main part of this review is going to centre around the food. It was awesome. I had Black pudding with crispy quails eggs for starters followed by the belly pork. It was a taste sensation in every bite. My wife had the... More

We have visited several times and feel that David is a great host. I visited impromptu with my mother on a return trip from Scotland and we were accommodated at short notice. The restaurant is one of if not the best in Richmond for fine dining. My mother said this was one of the best meals she has had in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The quality of food and menus at the Frenchgate reflect the passion and enthusiasm of the staff. Care is taken to source ingredients locally wherever possible and all our food is all prepared to order. Start with a selection of homemade breads, starters of hand dived scallops, Whitby white crab or carpaccio of local beef, then maybe a loin of Yorkshire lamb together with a confit of shoulder, a fillet of pan roasted halibut cooked to perfection, local game or one of our delicious vegetarian options. Our bar and wine lists match the quality and value of our food. Choose from our superb house recommendations or unique “wine flight” to classic and unusual new world offerings. As well as a range of fine spirits and liqueurs befitting the independent and non corporate feel of The Frenchgate, you can also enjoy a range of both local bottle conditioned ales, and imported beers from around the world. ... more   less
