This was our first time back to The Dining Room since it re-opened. Fantastic food. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch menu, The Pate was very tasty and well presented, my wife had the Crayfish starter she said it was superb. Main meals were Battered Haddock with Chips served on the plate with brown paper underneath the fish, a... More

My daughter treated me to lunch here for Father's Day. Was a wee bit apprehensive as I had been before and it wasn't that good however I think it looks like it has been taken over by new owners. Lovely friendly welcome from Colin who took our drinks order and explained the specials. Really nice menu and a few different... More

Food was ok and waitress was friendly. But the music, oh the music. Was musical-ish. Not good. When you're by yourself, these things matter

This small restaurant has very friendly staff and, a small, but well balanced menu. The quality of the food is excellent. I will be returning to this restaurant again.

We last visited in December 2013 for my birthday party. At the time our family enjoyed the evening however the staff did not go out of their way to make it a special night for example when we arrived our table was not even ready. This time when we arrived we were warmly greeted and shown to our table, our... More

On Visiting The Dining Room we were greeted with friendly warming staff who made us feel very welcome indeed. The decor of the restaurant is very contemporary and up to dates with the times. The food that we received was delicious and presented exquisitely exquisitely. We were not not rushed at all and made to feel at home. The service... More

Booked for dinner with family (9 of us in total) as a birthday meal. Had not been before, but were very encouraged by the website, the menu and the recent feedback trends (since new ownership) on Tripadvisor. We were certainly not let down. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, and very relaxed in nature. The service was friendly and attentive, without... More

Yet another great meal tonight. Service was fast and professional. good atmosphere. We had a selection of starters, and the kitchen even gave us extra special garlic bread, as asked. Lovely dessert - All it needed was a nice glass of wine - but driving :-( Certainly recommend the food and the service.

Went here with a friend for lunch and it was amazing. Nice restaurant, friendly staff and really nice menu. The food was excellent. I had the soup to start with followed by the beef goulash with wild rice. The food was super nice with nice portions and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommended this place to anyone looking for... More
