Had a lovely meal here, crab starter was delish, but not before we'd had a lovely blue cheese amuse bouche with beetroot. Monkfish main and chocolate dessert were also good, though we thought monkfish portion could have been a little larger. Would certainly go again,...More

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.
