Dating back to the 19th Century, the Old Hall will undergo a major renovation project in January which will see capacity at our flagship restaurant, The Orangery, increase and potentially a number of new jobs created.
Rockliffe Hall's 18th century Old Hall including Orangery restaurant, Cocktail Bar and lounges are currently closed for a major refurbishment and will re-open on Thursday 17th January 2013.
The project includes a complete refurbishment of the triple AA Rosette Orangery- with new artwork, décor, furniture and lighting, the creation of a state-of-the-art walk-in wine cellar and a restructure and extension of the kitchens to increase production capabilities throughout the day.
Following the refurbishment project, The Orangery
will extend its opening hours to include lunchtimes due to customer demand with capacity increasing to around 80 covers.
More events are also planned including celebrity chef dinners featuring some of the UK's top TV chefs, wine and champagne evenings to showcase the new walk-in wine cellar and Rockliffe Hall's extensive wine selection and 'faces behind the food' events to give guests the chance to meet the team of chefs, sommeliers and Maître d's and go behind the scenes to tour the new double-level kitchen.
As many of you might know, Rockliffe Hal
l opened in November 2009 following a £65 million renovation project to transform the run-down building into a 5* leisure resort complete with three restaurants, a world-class golf course
and an award-winning spa.
Since then, the business has won numerous awards and accolades including three AA Rosettes for the flagship restaurant, The Orangery,
and the gold award for VisitEngland's 'Large Hotel of the Year'.
We'll constantly re-invest in Rockliffe Hall
to allow it to grow and remain world-class, unrivalled anywhere in the North of England. This is a substantial investment which is creating new options for our guests, new jobs for people in the region and new opportunities for us as a consistently growing business.
This whole project is all about bringing Rockliffe Hall's 19th Century Old Hall to life, all day every day. It's the hub of the resort and we want all of our visitors to experience it- whether it's for morning coffee, lunch in The Orangery, afternoon tea,
drinks in our cocktail bar
or dinner in the evening."
"People are so much more interested in the theatre behind food these days and we want to be able to give them the chance to see behind the scenes at special events where we can reveal the faces behind the food and wine. It really is a very exciting time for Rockliffe Hall and to see the business growing even further is great news for the region as a whole."
