    Great Michelin restaurant. Tasting menu, with or without paired wines is excellent. Additional cheese board provides a very nice mix. Wines are good quality, with the Beaujolais Blanc being particularly enjoyed. House champagne is also excellent. Semi-private, one open-side room in corner of main dining area is pleasantly separate without being isolated. Weather permitting, the large walled garden is perfect for sitting and enjoying an aperitif. There is also a nice anti-room and bar area before entering the main dining room. The Manager and all the staff are excellent! All tables are well spaced and during Covid the general staffing activity has been very well managed.

    We had a Friday lunch at the Clock House in Ripley as a special treat to ourselves. For us it a very occasional treat as we know it is not cheap. But it exceeded our expectation with quality food and drink as well as first class staff making it a special and memorable event. We will definitely re-visit at some point in the future.

    Superb! Exceptional food and not expensive for the quality and the service. We were so well looked after, and the staff worked so hard with the mask wearing, and keeping us safe in these difficult times. We will definitely be back, and recommend to all. A beautiful restaurant in a great location.
