My girlfriend and I spent the Easter bank holiday at the Frenchgate and had a truly wonderful time. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They interacted with each of their guests on a personal level to ensure all their needs were catered for. The rooms have been beautifully restored and kitted out with all you'll need for an enjoyable stay. The exquisite bathrooms with underfloor heating, large double showers and heated mirrors are very well thought out. The "double bed" was enormous! Over 7ft wide and incredibly comfortable. The only minor downside is the level of mood lighting. Whilst providing a relaxing and romantic atmosphere it might be nice to have the option for some brighter light in order to apply makeup. However the lit and heated mirror in the bathroom was an adequate substitute. The food was simply sublime. I thoroughly recommend you book a table for dinner and when you saunter down for breakfast in the morning, be sure to sample Doreen's black pudding! We will definitely be staying here again!
- 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
