The Frenchgate Restaurant and Hotel

59-61 Frenchgate, RICHMOND, DL10 7AE

2 rosettes

Compounded of two original townhouses in photogenic Richmond, The Frenchgate is a modern boutique hotel with bags of character. Concentrated technical artistry is on show in a starter of quail's ballotine filled with wild mushroom mousse, alongside a pile of Puy lentils and a morel jelly with a quail egg set in it. Mains cover a spectrum from stone bass with razor clams in an emulsion sauce of brown crab, to mustard-crusted fillet and belly of local pork, appetisingly set off with crisp-fried kale and creamed Savoy, as well as mustard mash. Peach mousse with caramelised peach in its own coulis is a late-summer treat, served with thyme ice cream.
