About Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa
The Restaurant at Rookery Hall is renowned for its 2 AA Rosettes and is perfect for modern British food. To us, dining is all about taking excellent local ingredients and preparing them with care, creativity and respect – we believe the results should be as tasteful as the surroundings. Rich wood panelling and decorative latticework adorn the walls and ceiling, whilst large bay windows offer stunning views of the grounds and countryside beyond.
Head to the Drawing Room to put up your feet with a good book, freshly brewed coffee or light lunch. By day, the room affords peaceful views across the grounds and by night it is a cosy place to unwind, not least because of the open fires. It is the perfect place for sampling our afternoon tea, featuring homemade scones, fruit cake and, for some extra sparkle, a glass of Champagne.
My husband and I throughly enjoyed our afternoon tea. The food was delicious and from the moment we entered the hotel we felt very welcome. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. It was our first visit and it won’t be our last.
Helen and Aggie both provided excellent service with a smile. Both ladies are real assets to the hotel. Thank you.
Good quality at a reasonable price.
We had an excellent evening, with delicious food in relaxed surroundings.
Food, service and surroundings excellent however, you could die from dehydration waiting for someone to serve you in the bar!! When we finally ordered 2 G&T’s they finally arrived at our table (approx 10 feet from the bar) after about 10 mins !!!!
Excellent afternoon Tea as always.
Very friendly staff and excellent quality of food.
Afternoon tea on the whole was lovely. However, service was poor, not because of manner of staff they were very polite. There was one person serving the bar and afternoon tea customers we therefore had to look for staff and wait to even been acknowledged and seated. Possibly we came at a bad time and would still recommend Hand Picked Hotels for food and a stay,
Everyone in the party thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Will be back soon. Thank you
Thoroughly enjoyed Champagne afternoon tea. Celebrating my sisters 50th Birthday Staff were all pleasant and attentive
Excellent food and service.
Felt compromised when paying to find a surcharge.
I have stayed in a few hand picked hotels and even though rookery is lovely and we enjoyed our stay, in comparison to the other hand picked I’ve stayed in I’d say Rooney is below par. The breakfast wasn’t great, the evening meal food wise was excellent (albeit an odd menu) but the atmosphere and setting of the restaurant isn’t pleasant - the building is beautiful and the bar but I did not like the restaurant and the bar tables need to be arranged more intimately.
Food was delicious!! Staff so friendly & professional! Ambience was great! Loved our stay at the hotel & the bar & restaurant just added to it.
The afternoon tea was a nice addition to our stay. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and the building and surroundings are spectacular.
The service was fantastic and the food was delicious! At first glance you might think it is expensive, but the entire experience is well worth it. The staff are attentive, but in the background and are just the right level of professional, but personable. I would definitely recommend!
Staff and atmosphere lovely. Food good but had better afternoon tea for less money
Everything was just wonderful for our Champagne Afternoon Tea. It was our second time taking up this offer and the service was absolutely lovely, with familiar faces.
Went for my mum's birthday, reminded them before dinner and they forgot! Need more attention to detail. All table booking numbers were incorrect too and waited a very long time for a table despite booking in advance. Not impressed at all really and unimpressed especially condidering what we paid.
Very impressed with the location accommodation ,service ,and quality of food.I would certainly recommend to friends and will be back in the near future.
Enjoyable experience with lovely staff
Lovely afternoon and gorgeous setting! Cakes and food all gorgeous! Never fails to impress at Rookery!
Steaks were cold and had to be sent back. The fresh ones weren’t much better. I was ill through the night, spending over 1 hour in the bathroom. Not a good experience at all 😢
Lovely atmosphere, polite helpful staff. Very friendly and attentive.
Lovely afternoon tea! We got that much we even brought some home! Staff were lovely and very helpful. Will definitely come for afternoon tea again.
