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 time .. everyone was very polite, attentive and friendly. Branka was charming ! Food was delicious, however only complaint- we thought wine list rather over priced.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Cliveden. Entire stay was great and dinner was one of the highlights, food is always great, but the staff were super attentive and made our special occasion feel even more special. Thank you to everyone.

I was so looking forward to Sunday lunch at Cliveden but I'm afraid to say, I left very disappointed. I had the Saddle of Lamb for main and found the meat to be overcooked and tough. The dessert menu was also quite disappointing - despite being winter there were no hot options, and instead two mousses and a panna cotta. Didn't particularly enjoy my meal considering the price point, won't be returning and wouldn't recommend.

Excellent service in the Dining Room, food choice ok, desserts superb - not related to the food experience but I feel compelled to say how disappointing the ladies restrooms were (all 2 of them) where we had quite a queue for an average ladies bathroom experience

The food was good but not great or high end as the prices would suggest. We seemed to be forgotten about from about half way through the meal so served our own water and had to call out for help with desert. It all seemed a little clumsy and uncoordinated. Not the standard I was expecting.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of the food. The service was also very attentive but relaxed. We really enjoyed our whole time at Cliveden, it is ‘an ‘old school experience’ in the best possible way.

our table was immediately adjacent to admin table therefore not at all private. Food was good but not excellent. Flavours were a little bland other than sauce with venison which was too strong but not tasty. Dessert was excellent - caramel soufflé. Atmosphere not helped by mediocre lighting. Staff professional. All in all, slightly disappointing given reputation.

We love coming to Cliveden House for special family occasions.We always receive the best service and the setting and delicious food is always on point.Also as a gluten free guest I am always catered for, never feel left out and your bread rolls are absolutely exquisite I could just eat those for my meal as usually the gluten free options is a lot of establishments are below par.Thank you for maintaining such high standards and we will return again soon.
