Rockliffe Hall estate is synonymous with luxury, offering 5-star rated accommodation, a world-class golf course, stunning surroundings and a fabulous spa.


Now it’s turned it’s attention to the dining experience for guests, bringing on board Michelin-starred Chef Richard Allen, who will take the helm at the Orangery Restaurant.
Richard, who has held a Michelin star since 2011, will also work with the teams in the other two restaurants – The Clubhouse and The Brasserie. Speaking on his appointment he said:

“Rockliffe Hall and the North East have so much to offer and I have so many ideas that I am really looking forward to sharing. The team in place is so enthusiastic and, together, I am confident that The Orangery will become the region’s flagship restaurant offering a mix of informal yet informed dining.”


Each of the three restaurants at Rockliffe Hall offers a different culinary experience to delight guests – here’s our lowdown on where to eat and when…
