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.

Poor service here. The food was good but no better than any good restaurant. Not value for money. Wine very costly but good.

We've just returned from a delicious 'working' lunch at Rudding. The food was fabulous and we were truly spoilt. The service was great despite a large Wedding reception in the main bar area. All our waitresses were friendly and polite and delivered exceptional food with a smile and we will certainly return.
