Travellers' Choice
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.

I must have met David’s doppelgänger because the owner I have met has been absolutely fabulous from the minute I walked through the door. Covidwise the hotel is very clean and my temperature was checked within a few moments of entering the hotel and sanitiser was available. I booked directly and spoke to Melissa who was extremely friendly and helpful. The bedroom is spotless and extremely comfortable. As the restaurant is closed - David went out of his way to advise me of the various restaurants in close proximity and gave directions. By the time I returned a table had been set for me and my packaging cleared away afterwards without a murmur. When I have looked at the reviews it is clear that one reviewer has had the entire party review the same incident which frankly, from the perspective of a regular tripadvisor user, isn’t at all helpful and serves to inaccurately affect the review ratings. I am glad I disregarded the negative reviews as even in these Covid times I have found a lovely, comfortable and friendly place to stay - and I haven’t even had the breakfast yet! Would definitely stay again.

Great, comfortable hotel with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Very nice breakfast too. Unfortunately we weren't able to try the restaurant, but the menu looked excellent. Richmond is a lovely market town and we enjoyed a lovely walk along the river. The Station was also well worth a visit for its arts & crafts offering and the cafe. We visited during increasing uncertainty regarding countrywide CoVid pandemic risk levels - everything was clean and felt very safe which allowed us to have a very relaxed and comfortable stay.

Frenchgate is a charming hotel for a weekend getaway. What it lacks in amenities (e.g., in-room Wi-Fi), it makes up for in charm. And, that staff are friendly and treat COVID restrictions in a safe and reasonable way.

Very comfortable stay in a delightful small hotel within easy walking distance of Richmond's tourist attractions. Great breakfast set me up for a long drive ahead. Room quiet with ample space for single traveller. Happy to return.

Stunning hotel, breakfast was delicious, very professional, safe and welcoming. Will definitely be returning. Wanted a bit of a treat and luxury after a gruelling few months as a key worker through lock down and didn’t disappoint
