Food & service was excellent. Considering there was a wedding that day too, staff were attentive & food was good.

On an overnight stay we visited the Clocktower early evening and selected from the menu of the day. We chose the chicken ballotine ( very good, meaty but filling) and an onion cake with beetroot pickle (also good). My wife chose the burger which, with a toasted brioche), onion rings, fries, blue cheese topping was excellent but enormous, leaving no... More

We stay at Rudding Park often, and a trip there would not be complete without a trip to the Clocktower. I have eaten breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner on numerous occasions and are never let down

I have been lucky to dine here many many times. At one of our earliest visits I happened to mention a family treat of having skate wings. Since then on special occasions the hotel goes to the trouble of sourcing skate for me. Not every time because that would dilute the treat element, but enough times to keep me very... More

I have to go to Rudding Park once a year for a corporate event. I've done this twice now & taken clients (which is my job), each time I notify them that I am Celiac.

I was here a few weeks ago for our work Christmas party. As a vegan, I was impressed that I was actually given a full menu of options to choose from in advance. On the night though, the service and food was a bit of a let down. I alerted the staff to the fact I was to have the... More

Dear Guest We're delighted that your company chose to hold its annual Christmas Party with us at Rudding Park, but feel that your review is somewhat unfair on those of us that try to ensure that each person that orders a special diet receives it.

Oh how we love the Rudding Park afternoon tea, it's the best we've tried and we keep retuning. It's the most relaxing but indulgent treat, wonderful and in a gorgeous setting. Relaxed but special not too formal. This experience was the best yet, mostly due to the most amazing waiter this time, Clemont Sevant, who was the perfect person to... More

Just popped in for some lunch and was spoilt for choice with the menu. A very varied choice of hot meals or sandwiches and plenty of other tasty bits. Had a lovely egg mayonnaise sand which whilst my other half had fish and chips. Both fresh and delicious.
