Ate lunch during my spa weekend, all of our food was lovely, not amazing but lovely. The cocktails are expensive but they are worth it! Definitely recommend a Hugo cocktail! Staff are friendly and very helpful.

My hubby and I decided that since we both work very hard we'd pop to RH for an afternoon appetitive and tea last Saturday afternoon. We decided to go to the Club House as had never been. Granted it was 5 pm and from walking in we realised this was definitely the graveyard shift at this establishment. Although we had... More

My partner and I had lunch at The Brasserie Sunday 8th June. Everything from the staff to the food was fab. The new small plate menu is gorgeous and I'd highly recommend if you enjoy tapas style, grazing/sharing type food. Posh parma and the meatballs are my favourite but also tried the smoked chicken sandwich on pretzel bread and it... More

my husband, some friends and myself went to the Brasserie to try out the new menu. It didn't disappoint! It was the nicest meal we have had at Rockliffe Brasserie. The food included small plates and grazing options, tapas style, for sharing which made for a very relaxed dining experience. Everyone chose different options and we all got the chance... More

Bring back Kenny! Booked the Brasserie for a family celebration and hadn't been told the Brasserie had gone to a tapas style restaurant. Walked in on a Saturday night expecting an atmosphere and restaurant food but we were the only table and I was astonished that menu was basically sandwiches, wraps and dips - waitress as embarrassed as we were...

After the fabulous Spa experience we enjoyed our lunch in the Brasserie. I was very good!!! The staff pleasant and helpful, service was good and it topped off a very good experience for both... More

We have dined in the Brasserie on several occasions and have never been anything less than delighted. However we booked 2 weeks ago and we're not told that by the time we were to visit the whole style of the menu was to be changed to a Tapas style. In my opinion this experiment has not worked. The food was... More

A friendly welcome on arrival and promptly seated and drinks ordered, we perused the menu which offers quite a choice but somehow seems a little disjointed but as we had eaten here previously we stuck to what we knew, one of the sharing platters which provided a good selection for us and the pork loin chop, could not complain about...

Nothing to dislike - the food was fresh, tasty and not over powering. It was great from start to finish. Thank you to the people working on the night of 20 March 2014
