Relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, food never disappoints. If you want to be less formal try the bar food, the Club sandwich with chunky chips is a winner!

Gracious-living environment - beautiful people (weddings guests, top hats & tails & ladies that lunch) - but I find The Clocktower Bar & Restaurant is a lovely quiet spot for a bit of lunch (together or solo). Initially I felt somewhat abandoned & had to approach the staff to have my table cleared & to be offered a menu -... More

A delicious dinner with excellent service. We had 2 small children with us and the staff helped immensely. The 2 year old could choose her pizza topping which she enjoyed doing. The children's meals came out quickly so they could get started. Very enjoyable.

We were seated at a large round slightly screen off table so felt private . Food was excellent . Service good . Nothing too much trouble for the chef.

I'm actually surprised to be writing this, I had such high expectations of The Clock Tower Restaurant! Maybe it's my own mistake to expect too much?? But the thousands of great reviews would only back up my expectations.. Anyway, 10 of my family members met for my grandads 80ths birthday. We eventually ordered from the set menu for £40 a... More

Came here for afternoon tea with darling husband. Very enjoyable afternoon and nice tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes. Service disappointing - not very attentive and had to chase for things. Have been to Betty's in Harrogate for afternoon tea recently - a much better all round experience.

I'd much rather have a smaller selection of high quality dishes, and that's exactly what they deliver. The salt baked beetroot starter... More

Rudding Park have got this just right. Elegant stetting marrying a light and easy modern feel whilst making the best of the Georgian surroundings. Caring staff - polite and there at the right moment (and it is a skill) without unctuous pestering. And the food - it was good - very very good. We met up with friends from further... More
