We were visiting Richmond for an afternoon and wanted somewhere nice for lunch. We played Trip Adviser roulette! Finding restaurants 'Near Me', Frenchgate 29 was rated highly and about 3 minutes walk away. It didn't disappoint. Service was friendly and prompt, the food was very good. I liked the wooden puzzles on every table - they really made the place friendly, making conversation with other diners easy.

The Rocky Road is to die for!

At last a bit of class in Richmond in cooking i mean, all home made cakes and food to die for the full english breakfast is good value for money and with acup of tea to what more could you ask for? The two girls vicky and sam are lovely and are willing to pander to your food needs.Now about the bad points your waist line diet goes out of the window as the foods so good.This place is not a greesy spoon its a little quite eating place a jewel in the heart of richmond town,lets hope its here to stay for a long long time.Keep up the good work girls your a credit to the town.

my wife and I regularly visit Frenchgate 29- the young ladies who own and run F29 are always polite and very welcoming- the standard of hygiene is impressive and of course all of the food is home made and of the highest standard. We are locals are have tried all of the tea shops/restaurants in Richmond and for an overall pleasurable eating experience Frenchgate 29 comes out on tops. Now serving evening meals on a Sunday and the next Sunday we are going so watch this space for a review on that night! thanks girls and keep up the good work.

23.10.12. First time at this Bistro, will not be the last! The place is very well appointed, the owners and staff very friendly, and the food is excellent. In the evening they offer a choice of three starters, mains, and sweet, all for only £15.95? this might need to be checked. The food was all home made and very good indeed. They are I think also open at lunch time, worth calling in.
