Review on The Frenchgate Restaurant & Hotel
Once a gentleman's residence in a quiet cobbled street, this three-storey Georgian townhouse has been sympathetically restored and transformed into a personally run restaurant-cum-hotel. The place is something of a showcase for the work of local artists and the interior is a tasteful mix of period features, antiques and old oak tables (including one belonging to the owners 'granny') alongside contemporary lighting and sophisticated glassware.
Dinner might begin with a pressed terrine of Yorkshire rabbit & foie gras, butternut squash, pistachio and apricot or dressed east coast crab meat, avocado coulis, soft boiled quail egg and brown shrimp won ton ahead of slow-cooked tian of beef with creamy cep risotto loin of swordfish marinated in Asian flavours, crab rosti, ginger jus, pickled shiitake mushroom and pak choi. The Anglo-European theme follows through to desserts such as sticky toffee pudding with banoffi ice cream or a taste of Yorkshire rhubarb & custard, rhubarb ripple ice cream, ginger and spice or iced bitter chocolate parfait, cointreau sorbet, honeycomb and blood orange sauce.
