The orangery is a really warm and inviting place to visit, as is the whole Rockliffe Hall. Whilst many may believe that it’s only for the affluent, you could not be further from the truth, while the staff are polite and courteous, I witnessed differing...More

Stayed at Rockliffe to celebrate our anniversary (We had our wedding reception here too) - We opted for the 10 course taster menu which was exceptional. We didn't have the wine pairing as my wife was pregnant, so I opted for a bottle of Sancerre...More
