We had a fantastic meal and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing! Our Tuna and Trout starters were the star of the show! The second best restaurant I have ever eaten in. The first was a Michelin Star so that's pretty good going! The only downside was that we would normally have a couple of cocktails each with our meal but we had to choose a cheaper option as the 4 cocktails would have costly £80 alone.

Fabulously looked after by head sommelier Daniel Jonberger and his assistant David. Our option was the a la crate menu. We left the wine choices, by the glass, with Daniel for each course. Could not fault his choices at all. Be aware that there are more choices of wine by the glass than shown in the wine list.

Another amazing dining experience in the orangery, we have the six course tasting menu with wine pairing with Daniel and the whole experience was amazing yet again, we visit Rockcliffe about every 3 months to treat ourselves and we always eat in the orangery and we are never disappointed .

Beautiful restaurant, the tasting menu was superb but the wine pairing stole the show and Daniel, the Somelier was a fantastic host... the handbag stools are definitely worth a mention! The only issue we had is the service is a little slow getting our pre dinner drinks, but we will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the tasing menu and wine pairing and it was a truly memorable experience. An exciting menu beautifully cooked matched perfectly with delicious wines. Amazing service by the old hall team, notably Owen and Daniel made us feel very special, thank you all, can’t wait to be back

Great meals from the a la carte menu and hints from the sommelier. Only small disappointment was the long wait for our cocktails and then the delay with the wine which didn’t arrive for the main course.

We had the amazing tasting menu along with wine pairing for our visit. The setting was dreamy and romantic with perfect views. Liam explained every dish to us and also the wine pairing, his knowledge was amazing and made our experience even better! I have discovered wines that I didn’t think I would like but now adore and the flavours of the food were simply wonderful. We will definitely book again and would recommend this wonderful dining experience to anyone

I've visited Rockcliffe Hall many times and absolutely love it. From the minute we arrived at the entrance we are made to feel welcome. All the staff are very friendly, particularly Samantha who served breakfast. We stayed in an apartment that catered for three people It had one double room and one single room. The lounge/dining kitchen was a generous size even though we didn't use it. We spent most of our time in the spa or walking around the grounds. The food on the al la carte menu in the orangery was fantastic. Lots of things to choose from and some combinations of ingredients I'd never tried before. My mum likes very plain food but the staff catered for her needs just as much as ours. The deserts were fantastic. Just be warned, if you have a large appetite, the portion sizes are small.

We had the ten course tasting menu with wine pairings. The food, as always, was superb but the evening was made all the better by the knowledgeable sommelier who produced some amazing wines and was extremely knowledgeable about each and every grower. It was a real pleasure to chat to him. I was impressed that my wife’s dislike of cheese was accommodated - not always the case in certain upper end restaurants! It’s time for Richard to get his Michelin star!

Great food, setting and staff. Shame that standards have slipped and many clientele are allowed to behave in such ways not fitting the environment. (Scruffy, No shoes, loud overbearing and totally inebriated )
