Although my partner and I arrived a little later than planned David and his staff were most understanding,the room was outstanding and Davids history of the room was most interesting. The food and wine was beyond comparison. The staff catered for our every need we wanted for nothing. It was probably the best nights sleep we have ever had, we...

Ideally placed for visiting Richmond. The entire ambience was very pleasant. The gastronomy beyond what we expected in a quiet backwater. Imaginative and delicious. Would've liked a cheese option in order to use up our excellent red wine before the dessert.

The French gate hotel is lovely, the service is fantastic and so is the food. The only downfall was that the room we stayed in was smaller than expected and had damp on the wall which was disappointing for the £143 price we paid for one night.

We paid £158 for the room using Booking.com, the room was probably worth £120 which you may get if you shop around; not worth £158. The room has blue 'mood' lighting around the freestanding bath which looks lovely, however stays on all night, so a disturbed nights sleep. Breakfast was great, plenty choice.

I always try and book our companies guests in to the Frenchgate. The quality is as ever superb. Bedrooms have everything you need and more and the food is as good as anywhere in the UK. This is from the mouth of a very well travelled German colleague.

Great newly refurbished room. Very comfortable bed, on suite like new. Hotel restaurant very good service and attentive staff. Hotel has a sitting room which is very comfortable and tranquil If I had one slight critique it would be that the Haddock breakfast was very small (but still tasted great).

Picked out The Frenchgate thinking it was more up market than most hotels, clearly I was wrong. Arrived absolutely famished, so went to order some food from the menu left in our room stating that food is served all day, asked at reception for food to be notified that 'the chef isn't in and I can't cook'.....this is on a...

We had 2 nights stay, 2 breakfasts and an evening meal there. Overall, we enjoyed our time there and though its not perfect, we would recommend this place. It has its own private parking, the food is good, the staff are friendly and you can see the manager is intent on giving good service. After a Christmas week living out...

From the moment I walked through the front door of the Frenchgate Hotel, i felt at home. The owner is a charming gentleman and eager to please. The food is fabulous. The quaint antique decor is both elegant and comfortable. I'll definitely be back for a return visit. Loved it! Didn't want to leave. It had everything.

What a fabulously lush Hotel this is. We stayed in room 5, at the back of this beautiful Georgian Building. The decor throughout was top notch and very tasteful. David the Owner was an excellent Host. Spotlessly clean throughout. We ate in the Restaurant, and the food did not disappoint. Everything was cooked to order, and was delicious. Fantastic choice...

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
