Lovely!

We took advantage of the kingdom fm vouchers and have since returned a few times. We especially like the relaxed but classy atmosphere and have had good service every time. Some of my family members feel that sometimes the menu could do with being just a tad more down to earth, with some of... read more

My partner and I visited the dinning room for dinner. Was blown away by the décor, lovley, warming atmosphere. I can be quite fussy when eating out, hard to find a place I really enjoy, but I found it here! Food was fantastic! I highly recommend the pulled pork burger! My partner had it, and I've never tasted anything like... More

We went to the dining room last week about 4pm it was very quiet at this time. Service was very good as was my husbands chicken supreme, I had the penne pasta which could have done with being offered more Parmesan cheese but that's maybe just me. The only negatives are the portion sizes which were quite small and a... More

We stumbled across the dining room while trying to find some place to eat in a town we're not familiar with and were so glad we found it. Was a busier saturday night than the staff had expected to so were invited to have a drink in the bar while we waited on a table, which didn't take too long... More

Firstly thank you for taking the time in reviewing your recent visit to The Dining Room. I really appreciate your kind comments on the food and service and I do apologise for the lost drinks order and of course for selling out of the cheesecake As you said it was incredibly busy that evening but I'm glad it didn't affect...

Wanted to check out reopened restaurant. Nice surroundings, efficient unobtrusive service and food of high quality. Bit pricey to use as regular lunch eatery as most restaurants offering deals for lunch time so would like to see this as option -happy to consider restricted menu.

Visited on a Wednesday at 1.30 and it was fairly quiet, but inviting nevertheless. Lovely comfortable seats, good mood music, and lighting. Not a huge menu, but enough to make you undecided on what to have if you know what i mean. Young lady serving was attentive without being overbearing. Drinks a reasonable price and the food excellent. Would certainly... More

Took my mother here following Mothers Day, the staff were friendly but the decor and food were disappointing. We all ordered the Fish and Chips as thought it was a safe bet on the first visit, with Carrot and Coriander soup to start. The soup arrived piping hot.. good so far however the warm crusty roll had been replaced by... More

Therefore I'm disappointed to... More

Went to The Dining Room after it was recommended to us. So glad we went with the advise. We had a relaxed evening in very ambient surroundings, food was of a varied nature so everyone will find something they like. Portions were a sensible size so not getting stuffed and uncomfortable but you won't leave hungry either. Very friendly service... More

We visited this local restaurant recently and were totally disappointed. The interior was pretty shabby despite being recently renovated. The gents toilet door opened onto the main dining room, this was left open by a guest and despite staff working directly at the side of it, remained open throughout our visit. The food was average to poor, undersized overpriced portions,... More

Dear Helen, I am very disappointed to read your recent review of the dining room. I can only apologise that our restaurant was not what you expected. It is completely untrue however to say the restaurant looks shabby. In regards to the disabled toilet door this is located at the back of the restaurant behind a partition and does not... More
