I very nearly didn't write this review. Normally I put pen to paper (so to speak) immediately, but on this occasion events conspired against me. What brought me to the brink of not reviewing this place at all, however, was the fact that the Frenchgate...More

We went to the Frenchgate with high expectations. Fortunately these were fulfilled and even exceeded by the first rate dinner we enjoyed. The surroundings are eclectic but smart, and the walls adorned by a series of eye-catching paintings. The meal began with an amuse bouche,...More

We trudged through the snow on hazardous pavements to get to the Frenchgate restaurant last night and were so glad we did. All courses from the delicious Amuse Bouche to the tasty dessert we’re thoroughly enjoyed by both of us. Thank you.

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.
