Exceptional food and service over two evenings. Extensive choice from the A La Carte and Daily Menu. The food is beautifully presented and delicious. I particularly enjoyed the honey roasted goose breast and the venison with wild boar tortellini. The Colcktower also delivers and excellent breakfast.

Salt baked beetroot starter and ginger cake dessert were particular highlights! Only improvement could be to make the dining area a little cosier with mood lighting and soft music.

We stayed overnight in the hotel and wanted to dine in the restaurant but it was fully booked until after 9pm. However we checked again before we ventured out and they managed to find us a table earlier so a good start. We enjoyed crab and scallops to start followed by minute steak and venison. All were perfectly cooked although... More

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
