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.

We were a group of ten, celebrating a 90th birthday & thoroughly enjoyed the setting and presentation. The staff were extremely efficient and the food more than adequate - very fresh with a good selection of sandwiches, enormous scones, small but delectable cakes and constantly refreshed tea. The only real fault was that the 2 children's teas were a bit... More

A restaurant situated in a lovely setting. Delightful staff. The food was very tasty and presented extremely well. I have and will continue to promote that the cost of the experience as being pleasing too. We will certainly be returning the restaurant hopefully soon.
