We booked in to the Frenchgate for a birthday celebration. We stayed in the Mousey Thompson Suite which is absolutely fantastic - a unique experience. Dinner, as always was delicious and David's champagne cocktails topped it all off. A wonderful stay

Excellent hotel in centre of town with cosy feel, excellent restaurant and good service. Nice ambience, decor and artwork. Beautiful food and good wine list at reasonable prices. Parking outside a bit difficult but be patient.

It's always an exceptional experience staying at the Frenchgate. The rooms are comfortable and the restaurant is outstanding. But what really makes the experience memorable is David, the owner. He is attentive, knowledgable and funny.

Very comfortable room. Excellent service and facilities. Short walk to Richmond and local amenities. Food and wine selection was first class. Thoroughly recommend the restaurant for dinner, which for £34 for 3 courses is good value.

Each course surpassed the previous, every mouthful was exceptional! Even down to the owners wine choice, one of the best restaurants I have visited! I shall certainly return. Compliments to the chef, and thank you for the additional entrées he sent out with compliments! Amazing!

Excellent location, professional and friendly service. All meals in restaurant were top quality from a wide and inventive menu. The proprietor, David, was always available for help and advice. Would certainly stay again.

Unfortunately we were very disappointed to say the least. We chose The Frenchgate for two reasons: it's number 1 on Tripadvisor and because the Castle House B&B in Richmond where we have stayed twice, was fully booked. We always read reviews before booking and also read details of accommodation before going ahead and booking. Sadly reviews of the 'Cottage' annex... 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
