We ate in the orangery as part of a overnight package. We upgraded from the al a carte menu to the tasting menu for only a £10.00 supplement. Then food was fantastic, as good as our recent meals in both Peace and Loaf and House of Tides.

Took the 10 course tasting menu. Memorable meal on the whole. Imaginative cooking, beautifully presented. Two slight disappointments: bread offered was very mundane, cheese course was neither here nor there, but other than that - brilliant!

My wife and I enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu and it was incredible. The wine pairing was beautifully matched and the Somelier was great too. Overall a 10/10 experience.

The setting at the clubhouse is lovely as you are surrounded by the Golf Course. The only criticism I would give is that I went to Rockliffe Hall a few years ago for the Afternoon tea and it was presented much better as it all came out on one tray instead of individual courses therefore you could pick and choose what you want. Scones were slightly dry but the cakes and sandwhiches were gorgeous! Very good service from excellent staff.

We were only offered 6.30pm table and yet weren’t seated until 7.00pm. The food was ok but we weren’t offered any additional vegetables. The service was extremely slow and we were half an hour late for our booked car. The coffee was cold and served with cold milk. No hot milk offered. This was a special anniversary meal and we would not recommend this restaurant.

Another very enjoyable experience, service was excellent in all areas, our upgraded room was superb and the acknowledgment of the reason for this particular visit (Wedding Anniversary) were very nice. Our first time in the Orangery since the change to Al a Carte menu was nice but we were a little surprised at portion sizes, they could have been a little larger on the basis of 3 course, the portion sizes were I believe the same as those on previous Tasting Menu, in truth I had the intermediate course as well, that plus the Amuse bouche and petit fours was certainly enough, will not anticipate larger portions next time. All round excellent.

Firstly the staff were excellent, in the bar before dinner, in the restaurant and the sommellier. Very attentive and informative whether about the food or the wine. The food was excellent, a good tasting experience but whilst you won't die of hunger, the portions are of a size that aren't going to blow you out either. My star reduction was for the cheese; my colleagues and I were looking forward to a nice bit of cheese at the end of the meal but the allocations of cheese were literally miniscule and there was an extra charge for it. Some mistake surely? Overall a lovely place for a special meal, but give the cheese a miss!

We had a lovely evening. The service from the restaurant manager and sommelier was excellent, attentive without being intrusive, knowledgeable and engaging. The food was delicious and of good quality. The portions were on the small side but the variety of choice, flavours, textures and execution was superb. The ambience and decor were lovely, understated elegance, warm, inviting and comfortable. This wasn’t our first visit and won’t be our last. Well done to the team at Rockliffe and thank you.
