Kenny Atkinson at The Orangery, the fine dining restaurant at Rockliffe Hall in County Durham, is to only offer tasting menus from now on to help set it apart from the hotel's more relaxed brasserie restaurant and best showcase produce from the region.

Atkinson, who moved to Rockliffe Hall when it opened in 2009, has devised five (£59.50), seven (£69.50) and 10 (£85) course tasting menus through which he hopes to 'increase the awareness of the north east’s larder' and provided a 'gastronomic experience' for diners.

The chef also wants to refocus the fine dining restaurant to clearly define it from its sister restaurant, The Brasserie by Atkinson, which was relaunched last year and which offers a three course Market Menu alongside the a la carte menu.

"Both the Brasserie and the Orangery are already focused on quality and originality, but we want to give guests the opportunity to experience something completely different in both restaurants. We want to offer something different to showcase the north east’s food offering in the best way we can,” he said.
