My friend and I dined at the Dining Room last night.From the moment we arrived everything was A1.Parking was ample and the ambience of the dining room was just right. We were seated in a booth by the waitress Joann who was lovely and couldn't be more helpful. The food was delicious. I had the Penne pasta dish and my... More

Had an enjoyable evening at the Dining Room where my wife and I ate for our anniversary. The staff were attentive without being visible, the ordering was straight forward, the meals arrived and were both interesting and invitingly appealing. We had the pork fillet and sirloin, the pork was well plated, and taste was equally pleasing, the steak came as... More

Went in for lunch with a friend. Staff very attentive but not intrusive. Food was cooked and presented at a high standard and good value for money.

Had been away for the weekend and was a bit lazy on my return so we decided to go out for Tea. However, it was Father's Day and the first Restaurant we went to was very busy and off course we hadn't booked. Was actually glad as we decided to try our luck at the Dining Room. Fortunately, we did... More

We were so looking forward to our meal,but were very disapointed to say the least. My wife had the pate starter which ended up being the best part of the meal. I had the fish for my main course with side salad which was wilted and warm the fish and chips was just normal battered fish and chunky chips and... More

Visited the Dining Rooms a couple of times over the past few weeks . I can't fault the food or service. I was especially impressed with the smoked haddock,very tasty and well cooked. I can also recommend the vegetable and venison sausage soup. Apparently the soup is the chef's granny's recipe. I wish she was my granny!
