Food and Drink

Rockliffe Hall offers guests a choice of three outstanding restaurants, The Orangery, The Brasserie By Atkinson & The Clubhouse. Kenny Atkinson brings his Michelin-star style to The Orangery with seasonal, locally-sourced dishes and a daily-changing Market Menu plus a choice of five, six and eight course Tasting Menus with Sommelier matched wine pairing - The Orangery is a foodie heaven! The Orangery's partner restaurant 'The Brasserie by Atkinson' is cool and understated with menus reflecting a more simple style of food that of the Orangery but with the same strong focus on local fresh produce from carefully chosen suppliers. The Clubhouse, adjoining the championship golf course, fills the hunger gap with British classics, from bacon butties to chargrilled ribeye steak - and does a terrific Sunday lunch.

Rockliffe Hall also offers guests a choice of lounges and bars. The Morning Room is a pretty space for afternoon tea - the terrace, too, for when the weather is warm - while the dramatic colours of the Cocktail Bar make the perfect spot for pre- and after-dinner drinks.
