By having just one sitting and one menu for all diners it is a bit like going to a dinner party in someone's home. Excellent for family get togethers with no one having to cook (or do the washing up). Homely relaxed environment to be enjoyed by all ages. Taking your own wine is a bonus as it keeps costs... More

We had a wonderful time at the Dining Club on Saturday. The food was fantastic and the courses worked so well together. The atmosphere was perfect. An excellent find!

Returned again in April for another excellent meal. Great staff and Scott is always trying to be creative with his menus. Keep up the great work and we look forward to our next visit.

Great place and food is lovely . You have to be a member which is £10 per year but well worth it . Plus you can take you own wine and you only pay corkage !

Having been to the Dining Club a few times now, I feel that it is time to put "pen to paper" to say how thoroughly impressed I am. My 50th celebration in the upstairs room for 12 people was delivered effortlessly, despite a couple of friends being a little rowdy (that could have been me) However, I know somewhere is... More

On Sunday we went to the Dining Club for brunch. We started with Apple.smoothie wth cinnamon and honey followed by porridge with nuts and maple syrup, then salmon with spinach and poached egg on toasted cheese bread and finished with Cornish scones and cream. All this for £13.50. It was fantastic value and beautiful flavours. Once again Scottie excelled. Suzanne... More

We have eaten at the Dining Club many times over the years; most recently for the 'Fish on a Friday' menu. Scott was on great form in the kitchen and Suzanne, as ever, kept things running smoothly at the tables. All five courses were excellent but, as so often with Scott's cooking, the soup was a highlight. The 'beurre blanc'... More

This place is "Simply The Best." Valentine's Night was exceptional, even better than their normal very high standard.
