Refurbished and re-launched in 2014, Wortley Hall’s Ruddy Duck restaurant has been earning a reputation as the new local fine dining experience. Its official launch is on February 4 2015, where guests are invited for an evening to celebrate its success and to taste samples of Head Chef Matt Robinson’s new menu.
With seating for 30 people and an open kitchen, the restaurant has a charming and cosy atmosphere. It is located in the stunning main hall but is open to non-residents and has its own entrance. It prides itself on using only the best local produce and ingredients and the halls own kitchen garden is often used for its vegetables and herbs. Its aim is to showcase the best of Yorkshire ingredients cooked with a modern twist.
Head Chef Matt Robinson and his team are proud of the seasonal menus they produce. The new menu includes Pan Fried King Scallops, Serrano Ham, Roast Pumpkin Puree and Roast Garlic Oil as a popular starter followed by Slow Cooked Lamb, Sweet Potato, Baby Leeks and to finish a Tonka Bean Crème Brulee, with Yorkshire Rhubarb and Gingerbread.
The launch of the new restaurant at the hall is just part of the ongoing refurbishment of this well-loved ex stately home. Originally home to the Earls Of Wharncliffe, Wortley Hall then became a centre for the local trade union and labour movement. Today it welcomes all and is one of the most popular wedding venues in the area. With 49 bedrooms, lounge, bar and function rooms the hall still operates as a non profit venue with all the revenue earned directly going to ensure the future of this beautiful house and gardens.
The Ruddy Duck @ Wortley Hall is a great place for all occasions and is open to all.
Booking is advisable and the restaurant is open Tues to Sat 6pm until 9pm
