Food at Rockliffe Hall

Good food but service was not what we expected. One course was missed and weren't offered any bread.

This restaurant seems to be the one used mainly for package deals, but I must say it has a vast choice of starters, mains and sweets, could not fault the food on our stay

Was really looking forward to coming here. I found the food very average. The cheesecake dessert had no flavour at all. I would say 3 star food presented in a 5 star manor. Not good and wont go back.

Lovely food in relaxing setting. We were on a package, so the menu was limited, but all the food was delicious.

Visited on the afternoon and fancied a scone, the Brasserie do not serve scones although it was arranged that a scone would be sent from the other restaurant. We returned on the evening for a meal, we found there was limited choice on the menu. The food was nice and the service was really good.

Booked in for a meal whilst having a one night stop over. The service was spot on and the food good. My other half said the mussles were very good and I enjoyed the pressed ham for starters. We both had the burger for mains. This is a hotel and the wine prices were as you would expect. It would... More
