Description: The Clocktower restaurant, set inside the stylish four AA Red Star Rudding...
The Clocktower restaurant, set inside the stylish four AA Red Star Rudding Park hotel in North Yorkshire, is a super example of decadent dining at its best. We adore the ��ber-chic interior at Clocktower, which features everything from a 400 year old Catalonian olive tree, hand-painted Brazilian wallpaper and a 27 foot limestone bar to a divine hand-made pink crystal chandelier from France. Executive Chef Stephanie Moon is renowned for her Yorkshire Tapas ��� which includes a variety of dishes such as the mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef and horseradish sauce, Holme Farm venison sausages with apple and geranium jelly, and the Yorkshire blue cheese parcels with blueberry and balsamic vinegar, and the Whitby smoked haddock in Black Sheep beer batter. The Clocktower bar is open all day everyday.

Very very nice

Lovely fine dining experience, great service in lovley surroundings. I would like to have chosen my table rather than being put in the conservtery. Drink prices are high especially water.

We dine and party here regularly and are very happy to recommend it. As ever there are plusses and minuses. On the plus side we can begin with the venue itself which is of the highest standard in décor and appointment. In the summer a meal in the conservatory is a delight, We went often when the children were younger... More

Large group enjoyed an excellent meal in the Clocktower. Food, service and overall quality were all very good. Restuarant was busy, time to wait for meal was more than acceptable, time between courses excellent too. Overall experience, was very good. Would recommend.

My wife and I have been here a few times, it has always been good, however we went for an " early bird " last time as we were going on somewhere else, this was disappointing.The quality of the meat left a lot to be desired and the attitude of the staff was different to when we had been before.

This is one of the best restaurants in the UK. The setting is wonderful and the food and service will not disappoint, Considering the surroundings and the food quality the prices are reasonable. There is a good wine list as you would expect in a restaurant of this standard.

Had lunch in the restaurant for a birthday celebration. The service was OK aside from a Greek waitress who was a delight and made the day. The food is not top end cooking at least for Sunday lunch, a bit posh hotel cooking by numbers. The beef that half of us had was poor and despite mentioning it to the... More

fantastic meal in the Clocktower restaurant. Food was delicious. Crab starter to be recommended, steak cooked to perfection, and the side order of macaroni cheese is a must. Staff were very friendly.
