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.

Well, a case of the good, the bad and the ugly.... The Good... quality of the food is excellent. Cod Loin being beautiful, and other dishes of duck, scallops etc, whilst being on the small side, were equally tasty in our party. The Bad. Service.

It was recently my (round one!) birthday and my wife and I were treated to lunch at the Clocktower by some friends. I have to say that everything, from the cheerful greeting banter from the Maitre d' to the Calvados following a superb meal, was faultless.

We were not staying at the hotel just travelling to the airport and decided to try this restaurant. Not wishing to have a large meal we decided on sandwiches, however the delightful Polish waitress suggested we have a salad instead with bread on the side. What a great idea, the salad was prawn and avocado. It had fennel tomatoes greens... More

Nice hotel, rooms lovely and clean, some of staff however not very friendly particularly at breakfast which was average, have had better at Premier and Travel Lodge and considering the cost it was a disappointment! Other staff at the bar and porters etc were very friendly and accommodating.
