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.

The food was wonderful, the service impeccable. Unfortunately being seated next to other diners so closely in a 2x2 line meant we could hear everyone's conversation and also be put off our dinner and our conversation! My device try to book and take not so close to strangers. Completely ruined our anniversary dinner and for the total we spent both... More

We had our Anniversary Dinner in the Clocktower Restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. We started with a relaxing drink in the bar until our table was ready.

I had booked a table for The Clocktower in order to celebrate both the start of the Tour de France in Yorkshire and the birthday of one of our guests. Paulo, the head waiter, is always a pleasure to talk to and greets us like long lost friends. As usual, the food was lovely, with my son wanting to make... More

Disappointing! The afternoon tea was well presented, but expensive. Small quantity of finger sandwiches, bite size cakes and no choice of tea offered. Friendly staff and lovely setting in the conservatory.

Dined at the Clocktower while stopping at the hotel as part of a DB&B package for our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Lovely ambience, very attentive and talkative staff (not the robots you get in some other places) and some excellently presented and flavoursome food. Thanks to all for making our night really special.

The al Fresco dining experience at the Clocktower restaurant at Rudding Park was just wonderful. The food could not have been better, the outdoor setting looking out of the grounds was lovely and service was top notch. It is a bit pricey but it is worth the expense. But NOT a place for small children.
