Having had many tasting menus in the past and enjoyed them I was disappointed with the Orangery. Found the food a little bland and the wine wasn't cold enough. Also felt the lighting was far too bright amongst seemed like spotlights in my eyes during the meal. Find came out too quickly! Best part was cheese and biscuits! Good breakfast... More

We ate of the tasting menu and the whole thing is an experience in itself. When visiting make sure you have nothing else planned because we were there for 3 and half hours. The food is served so beautifully in small sample sized portions. Stunning food would recommend to friends and family.

Unfortunately we chose a 2 night break at rockcliffe hall when the Orangery was routinely closed. So I just had to remember the lovely meal and wine we had on our last visit here. Superb. Will have to make sure we choose different nights on our next stay. Still The brasserie was a lovely substitute

Excellent service even though we arrived fifteen minutes before breakfast was ending as we had been for a swim. Food is cooked fresh and was delicious. The setting is beautiful and the hotel truly deserves its five star rating

Ate here as part of a weekend spa package. Unbelievably good! By far the best and amazing food I've ever eaten. It's very expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

We had the four course dinner during a recent stay. The four courses were actually 6 as we had an amuse bouche (shrimp risotto) and a pre-dessert. My husband was able to switch one of his courses to one from the 7 course menu due to a food intolerance and appreciated having this flexibility on the menu. Next time I... More
