The Orangery at Rockliffe Hall is among the Michelin inspectors' favourite new restaurants

The Orangery at Rockliffe Hall has been chosen to join The MICHELIN Guide 2023.

The MICHELIN Guide Inspectors are on the road all year round, assessing existing restaurants as well as uncovering new ones worthy of recommendation in the Great Britain & Ireland selection. While The MICHELIN Guide distinctions – Stars, Green Stars and Bib Gourmands – are only revealed at the annual MICHELIN Guide Ceremony, the Inspectors add restaurants to the selection year round.

MICHELIN said of The Orangery: "Rockliffe Hall, a sprawling country house hotel and spa, is the setting for this elegant restaurant. Enjoy a drink in the buzzing cocktail bar while you choose from the à la carte or tasting menus, which feature produce from their own walled kitchen garden. Once into the restaurant, expect quality cooking that benefits from a modern and unfussy approach. Dishes are simply presented with clean, distinct flavours which complement each other beautifully."

Well done to Head Chef, Paul Nicholson and team for creating food worth celebrating!
