Description: 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.

Setting, staff, food, comfort. being local to us we like to go for special days and personal enjoyment. There is ample car parking within a short walk for the 'Clock Tower Restaurant' where the service is always quietly efficient and everything runs very smoothly.

My mother and I have just spent a lovely afternoon at Rudding Park enjoying champagne afternoon tea. My mother is disabled and I have sometimes been disappointed in restaurants and hotels at the lack of courtesy towards her. Not so this afternoon. Without exception the staff were helpful and friendly without being over familiar. Afternoon tea- with a lovely glass... More

20 miles from where I live, but nothing nearer (and there are some good places) or even further afield, to compare with Rudding Park. This latest visit was for the Sunday lunch experience, Beautiful setting and internal environment, imaginative and immaculate cuisine (much of it locally sourced), naturally communicative staff, family friendly.

Great food, attentive service. Very pricey though - glad I wasn't paying! I had crab ravioli, steak (not the best cut of meat ever) and cheeses and biscuits. The waitress didn't know anything about the cheeses but came back with a print out a bit later. All jj all, a good meal. Not amazing, just good. Weird yo have huge... More

we had not reserved in the Clocktower so hoped for a space, which the manageress found in no time. She was absolutely charming as was our waitress who could not have been more helpful and the food, especially the scallops, was top notch!
