About The Cliveden Dining Room

Precisely executed and exquisitely presented dishes are what guests at The Cliveden Dining Room can expect. Situated in the beautiful Cliveden House and overlooking stunning National Trust gardens, visitors are surrounded by grace and grandeur as they enjoy a dining experience to be remembered for all the right reasons.

The tremendous talent and irrepressible drive of the team at Cliveden is evident throughout the dining experience, from the harmonious atmosphere in the kitchen to the immaculate finishes to innovative dishes. This extends into the restaurant space itself, where princely decor and attentive service create a truly incomparable dining setting. Steered by the availability of seasonal produce, the well-conceived à la carte and tasting menus are a gastronomic tour de force of outstanding English produce.

Though both offerings change frequently, a sample à la carte might list starters of Portland crab and roasted cauliflower with cauliflower couscous and wild sea herbs, and twice-baked Lincolnshire Poacher soufflé. For the main event, diners might sample the likes of a fillet of skrei cod with fennel, saffron and
shellfish; Jurassic Coast rose veal with sweetbread, carrot and black garlic; or a loin of locally stalked wild roe deer with salt-baked beetroot, blackberry and parsley root.

We had a fabulous overnight stay and wonderful evening cocktails and dinner. We cannot fault the food, staff or ambience. A truly wonderful evening. We hope to return again soon.

We loved our stay but there were a few things I would like to mention. The menu was the same on both evenings no changes for meat. For the cost of the stay this was unacceptable and I had to request something different that I didn't really want. Eggs benedict for breakfast just tasted of vinegar. With the room we were disappointed as we said there was no need to change the bedlinen just new towels. The bins were full, we had no teabags, no note to say request milk, glasses, towels, flannels were not replaced . No one came into the room. Also my partner left his trainers by the hot tub and when I called to ask they weren't found. Very disappointed with service. Grounds and pool were lovely although only being able to have a poorly presented salad as a snack was not good. No bill sent by email to show the final bill. Could do much better overall as have had superior stay and service in other hotels.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The Black Forest dessert was a particular highlight and utterly delicious. Despite having to work in the challenging circumstances of a Covid secure environment the staff were all charming and the service was outstanding.

We stayed at Cliveden for our silver wedding anniversary. We were treated very well during our dinner. We asked in advance for a table by the window and were given a prime spot with a perfect view of the gardens. The food is expensive and during this post-lockdown phase, the menu is limited, but that does not detract from its very high quality. The wine list is phenomenal, although does cover a broad range of prices. The staff were perfect. I would highly recommend Cliveden for a special occasion.

Utter delight to be dining here again. All of the staff went the extra mile to give us both a really lovely evening minimising the inconvenience of the Covid-19 safety measures. Delicious chicken and pistachio terrine. Zarah superb with wine advice. Thank you.

Way to expensive Portions very small, starter was bland and tasteless, crab salad had shell still not taken out, main dish knife not washed, bread bland, beef wellington not cooked correctly and pastry just wrapped around the meat after beef cooked and not very nice. We paid £164 for a meal for two as a special anniversary treat, and to honest we could have spent £40 at our local village pub and had a better meal We left the Clivedon House restaurant feeling still hungry and very upset

Thank you so much for the wonderful Sunday Roast followed by cocktails in the bar. The staff are so attentive- lots of careful distancing. They took our temperature on arrival and offered loads of hand sanitatizers in every room. It felt a safe haven from the world we live in (July 2020) Brenka and here team were superb and moved us to the desired window seats.

Dinner was superb. The food and service was excellent and the staff coped very well with the additional restrictions imposed during lockdown. The team had responded really well to our request to have the same dessert as we had at our wedding breakfast after our wedding at Cliveden. Thank you.

An iconic room but the lighting was too bright ! Ps.Beef Wellington main was great Comprehensive wine list but too pricey overall. St Emilion Grand Cru I chose was good. Overall a great dining room to experience with the unique view of Cliveden gardens. Dimmer lighting would have made it more intimate
