I was not going to pay £21 for a burger and therefore opted for the tortellini with roasted cherry tomatoes and pine nuts - sound yummy? Sadly not - £21 - 6 pieces pasta with very bland filling overwhelmed by acidic partially cooked cherry tomatoes. The beetroot and goats cheese starter looked amazing but did not excite the palate. Certainly... More

Ate in the bar not the restaurant so can't comment on the full menu but the bar food is very variable. Omelette excellent, crayfish sandwich soggy. To echo an earlier review though, the staff and service are all over the place - bar service is manic and table service looked like it could take ages - I went to the... More

Sometimes you get a feeling about what you are about to endure within minuets of walking in. Experience tells me it was at this point I should have turned and ran. However, being out to celebrate a Family Birthday we stayed more in hope than expectation. We ordered drinks and waited 15 mins for them to arrive. Ten mins after... More

Last here for my birthday 2 years ago and it's still as good as ever. The food is amazing, beautifully presented and really well cooked plus the service is great. Relaxed and convivial atmosphere and everyone had a lovely time. It's not cheap but it does take Tastecards with a whopping 50% off so our 3 course meal for 8... More

We drove to Rudding Park today for a lunch and as my wife was attending a function this week we were checking the restaurant out. We were disappointed with the service which was poor,the food also was poor and not value for money.it would appear that there were too many supervisors and not enough workers.

Had a good evening here. The menu is well put together. If staying at the hotel on DBB you get a £40 allowance per person towards the food bill (not drinks). The food was well presented and cooked. I thought the fish pie was the best I've tasted apart from being a little too salty for my palate. The cheese... More

My wife and I were married at Rudding in July 2000 and have returned every year, without fail, to celebrate our anniversary,sometimes with our boys and sometimes as a couple. Without fail, over the last 16 years, Rudding Park, and the Clocktower have been amazing. The staff are so welcoming, the surroundings and atmosphere perfect and the food is fantastic.... More

Absolutely stunning hotel and grounds. Came for afternoon tea for my birthday the staff and service were superb polite attentive and professional. Would have been a 5 star review however the food itself did not match the high level of service we received. The sandwiches were warm, the cheese sandwiches were caked in too much butter which is all we... More
