The only problem with dining in small hotels mid week is that their dining rooms tend to lack atmosphere. The owner is very charming and chatty but despite lovely jazz background music, the dining room was a little quiet. We enjoyed our evening however and...More

Had a lovely meal here, crab starter was delish, but not before we'd had a lovely blue cheese amuse bouche with beetroot. Monkfish main and chocolate dessert were also good, though we thought monkfish portion could have been a little larger. Would certainly go again,...More

We had the set 3 course Menu at Frenchgate Restaurant, and it didn't disappoint.....In all honesty, I could have forgone the desert, as there was a pre-starter and a taster desert prior the the main desert......nevertheless, fine dining.

David and his staff are amazing. Excellent service starting with cocktails in the drawing room, wine parings with each course, and amazing deserts. We had the beef and pheasant and both were delicious. Was amazingly relaxing dinner and evening.

Tucked away in quiet Frenchgate inside a former Georgian Gentlemans residence now the beautiful Frenchgate Hotel, is the stylish, 2 Rosette, Frenchgate Restaurant.Only eight candle lit tables, including Granny Todds family table, original artwork, designer tableware, crisp cotton napkins but "no stuffy white tablecloths" complete the stylish and relaxed ambience for a meal of outstanding quality. A team of talented chefs prepare fresh baked breads, home made ice creams together with ever changing menus from local, seasonal produce every day.Choose from a fixed price dinner, simple a la carte lunch or any special offer menus and you are assured of the finest dishes freshly prepared to order. Food is served in the restaurant, cocktail bar, lounge or private gardens all complimented by a "more interesting than unusual" and very reasonable wine list, including the famous Frenchgate Wine Flights and finished with something from the well stocked cocktail bar.
