We were a bit surprised that on Friday of August Bank Holiday weekend, there was no difficulty at all in getting a table for two at any time we wanted, but when we got there there was us, and thankfully another table of four, otherwise we'd have dined in solitary splendour. The Dining Room is a delightful little place, with... More

Superb staff from owner to waitress they made every effort to make us feel it was a special evening. Very personal service; lovely pre dinner lounge and incredibly spacious table, homemade warm bread and really nice touches such as canapés and sweet treats with coffee. High end eatery at local price.

Firstly, it is just our opinion and, to be fair, you should make your own decision. For us, it was just an okay night out, nothing memorable, doubt if we would return in a hurry. On arrival you head upstairs for a pre-dinner drink, which was accompanied with canapes, which was a nice touch. You choose your menu before heading... More

My friends and I went for a meal to celebrate my birthday and had such a lovely evening. The food was incredible and every course was beautifully presented. The owners were extremely friendly and all the staff we really efficient. We loved the upstairs bar where we had pre dinner champagne and then coffee afterwards. I can't wait to go... More

We've eaten here quite a few times before and although we've often found the atmosphere and clientele a bit on the "old" side the food has always been excellent. Our meal on Saturday fell a bit short of expectation and having eaten in the Grantham Arms the night before couldn't help think that was better. On a positive note the... More

Absolutely loved this friendly, local restaurant. The staff couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. Really liked having the table for the whole evening meaning we never felt rushed. The food was fantastic, good portions and a range of seasonal choices. Cannot recommend enough!

For 6 years nothing has come close. A table for 2 or a party of 32 the quality and service is 2nd to none. Whether it is the steak, fish or vegetarian we have been spoiled by Chris's consistently great cooking everyone elses is a bitter disappointment. The atmospheric lounge and prestine dining room makes a perfect setting for any... More

We always make a trip to The Dining Room Restaurant when we are visiting Yorkshire, there are special touches here that you just don't get in most restaurants, such as being brought delicious canapés to enjoy with a pre-dinner drink in the bar to the lovely homemade sweets that are served with coffee. The service is seamless and the staff... More

Living fairly local, I am fortunate enough to have dined at The Dining Room on a number of occasions, and i can honestly say that the novelty of going has never worn off...i look forward to it that much!! Therefore I thought it only fair, after my latest visit, to tell everyone about it! From the moment you walk through... More

Firstly I was undecided whether to post a review as I want to keep this little gem of a place to myself. But in the end, it deserves to be reviewed and recognised as THE best restaurant in the area. So here goes... We've eaten at this restaurant 4 or 5 times and every time it has been consistently perfect.... More
