The Clockhouse at Ripley

Formerly known as Drake’s, this elegant restaurant held a Michelin Star and 3 AA Rosettes for many years. Within weeks of Serina, the current owner, taking over the restaurant and appointing a new Head Chef, the AA reinstated the three Rosettes, and within a year Michelin had reinstated its star.

Head Chef Fred Clapperton, aged 29, joined the brigade of what was then Drake’s. He has worked at establishments such as Bibury Court in the Cotswolds, where he learned about different breads – a skill which is much in evidence at The Clock House today. His passion for creativity and design, alongside his attention to detail and keenness always to use the finest quality, seasonal produce sourced within the UK, has garnered rave reviews. The menu is an outline of ingredients but the details of presentation are left to the individual reader’s imagination – until it arrives at table! His food, served by a friendly and professional front of house team led by restaurant manager Joseph, has enabled the Clock House to retain old customers and attract a new clientele.
