About The Rib Room at Ramside Hall Hotel
We're rightly proud of the reputation that the Rib Room has as one of the finest dining venues in the North East. At the AA award-winning Rib Room Steakhouse and Grill steaks are the house speciality, where we serve the finest Durham beef, matured for up to 32 days, to produce a succulent and tender steak.
And don't just take our word for it- you can take a peak in our unique meat locker and see the quality of the product for yourself.
The style of the dining room goes towards creating the perfect atmosphere with round tables with banquette seating available.
And to wash your delicious dinner down choose from our extensive wine list offering more than 50 hand-picked wines.
Food was delicious, huge portions and value for money. Atmosphere was lovely and staff was exceptional. 10/10
Serice was very slow waited ages for a pot of hot water and wasnt told where to go and pay at the end causing a bit of confusion.
Have left review on TripAdvisor (you have the info on the card u leave with the bill). Staff are pleasant but attention to detail is lacking. Nice food but experience spoilt by the long wait we endured and failure to follow a simple request about cooking preference for one element of the dish. It’s very clear you have a significant and loyal following: really pleased to see a business thriving, but on this occasion, we left disappointed.
I couldn’t fault the full experience, it was fabulous
We reported to reception on arrival and explained we had a booking for afternoon tea. We had expected to be shown to the Rib Room, as per our reservation, but instead we were told to take a seat in the adjacent Norman Cornish Lounge and that someone would be with us soon. We liked the lounge very much but after about 20 mins. no one had approached us and I had to go to find a waiter to ask to be served. When it came, the food itself was of good quality but small portions, much less than we have had in other establishments so not great value for money. When we were approximately half-way through our tea, a complaint was being dealt with on the table next to ours between four dressing-gown clad "guests" and a Ramside member of staff. This was loud at times and something we did not need to hear or experience during what we had hoped would be a peaceful time for us! Surely a better place could have been found for this "discussion"?! We liked the lounge itself but would find it difficult to recommend Ramside for afternoon tea due to value-for-money and service.
Great dining experience! The food was amazing, my sirloin steak was the best I’ve ever tasted. Lovely staff, great service and the French Head Waiter just delightful, we’ll definitely be back, highly recommended
The waiter got our order wrong 4 times to the point my fiancée had to question the order he wrote down and amend it. Paid £14 for a “Mac n cheese” which was the depth and width of a normal pasty. There was a very long wait for food approximately 40minutes we waited for a burger to be cooked. We purposely booked the table at 8.30pm to avoid busy periods and we then felt rushed to finish our food as the same waiter who had taken our order kept asking “have you finished” a few times which made us feel very uneasy and rushed. The food was tasty we had two burgers and a side of Mac n cheese and this came to £78! Yes £78 for two normal burgers and a side. We are regularly diners who eat at “not cheap” places but this was a disgrace. A few other people around us didn’t seem to pleased with their food either. It’s a shame because it was our valentines evening and this did ruin the night as we where looking so forward to dining at the steak house.
Lovely food , service could be a bit better but overall very good
This was our second time dining at the Rib Room and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Lovely food, friendly attentive service, great selection of wines, interesting decor. Our only critique would be that the wait between our starter and main course was about 50-55 minutes and the steak arrived more ‘medium’ than the ‘medium-rare’ we had ordered, however the waitress and the manager both apologised to us for the wait which more than made up for it. Would definitely look forward to returning.
First time at the Rib Room and didnt disappoint, would highly recommend to anyone and will certainly be going again
Excellent food and service as always. Would like to see the menu change a bit more frequently though on the specials as it has been the same for quite a few years
Excellent food and service in a very civilised setting, just a little pricey maybe . . .
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Felt really special and food was delish...... thank you
We couldn’t have been happier with the food and service. We had a lovely waitress looking after us (Rebecca we think). She was very professional but still managed to be extremely friendly. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
Food was excellent venue was excellent only problem i had was i was sat half hour without been offered a alcoholic drink i was given water on arrival but i was really looking forward to a nice glass of wine asap to be honest i felt have hour was too long to wait
Really enjoyed it, will definitely dine here again.
We went for the Sunday lunch as we were celebrating a birthday! The restaurant was so busy but this didn’t effect the service. Staff were beyond helpful and nothing was a problem. Food was amazing and great selection of wines. Will definitely be back to again soon
We dined on Sunday 3rd February at 1.30pm and were greeted by host Michael who arranged drinks in the lounge while we looked at menus. Our waiter Adrian was very polite and courteous and our meals were served promptly and hot. We both had mussels to start and then one halibut (extremely well cooked portion thank you) and one lamb which looked a bit under but melted in the mouth. No room for desserts but piping hot coffees ended a very relaxing lunch with a great buzz in the restaurant.
Lovely food and staff
Great atmosphere. Staff where very good and knowledgeable regarding food and drink. Highly recommend.
5* all the way. The food was amazing and the service was absolutely top class. Special shout out to Michael Brett who is an asset to the restaurant. He stood out in a service that was all 5* and top class. Just wish I had been there for more than 1 night but will definitely be back.
The restaurant itself was quite cold so it wasn't as enjoyable as I expected it to be.
Absolutely beautiful from the starter to the dessert, the service was also fantastic. Will definitely return soon
