ROCKLIFFE Hall has revealed its brand new restaurant set to open in August. 

‘Nu Sana’, which means 'Nourish the Soul', is described as a casual eatery situated above the hotel’s award-winning spa.

The new restaurant will offer a dining menu consisting of both healthy, nutrition-led menu items such as superfood salads, smoothies, fresh juices alongside nourishing dishes and buddha bowls.

With a strong emphasis on garden-to-plate, many of the dishes use ingredients from the estate or are grown within the kitchen garden.

Inside, the restaurant includes precise attention on materials such as marble, timber and botanical essences.

And in a first for the hotel, guests and spa day visitors will be welcome to dine ‘in robes’ to allow for ultimate comfort and relaxation.

Nu Sana will be accompanied by the launch of new Spa Day experiences, which will also be available from 2nd August.
