The Dining Club although now established for 7 years, is a new style of dining venue. It is unique in that you book a table and will be seated in individual dining rooms that feel more like a private dinner party than a restaurant - Proprietors Scott & Suzanne Roberts offer unrivalled hospitality that can be a discreet or familiar as your company requires. Scott (Head Chef & Proprietor) has been cooking for over 20 years and has previously won 2AA Rosettes for 6 consecutive years whilst running his family owned hotel in Boscastle, North Cornwall. Wife, Suzanne (Front of house & Proprietor) has been in the hospitality industry for 25 years and will provide a warm, friendly welcome and ensure that your experience compliments the food

Brilliant

Me and my partner visited the dining club for the first time last week and it is by far, the best dining experience we have ever had. The service was impeccable and the food was on another level. We're debating if it is worth fine dining again as the dining club cannot be beaten. 10/10

Was so looking forward to visiting the Dining Club and it certainly lived up to expectations. Thought it FABULOUS. The food was exquisite, the staff friendly and attentive and great atmosphere. Extremely good value and can't wait to dine there again. Would highly recommend.

Fabulous Sunday lunch with a great atmosphere. Delicious mackerel, fabulous soup and great roast. Followed by a very memorable dessert - the pink peppercorns made it :-) Will be back.

We booked for a Gourmet afternoon Tea, and this lived up to our expectations. There were three courses with multiple items in each one. All the individual items were flavoursome and a delight to the eye too, with a good mixture of savoury and sweet. Unlimited Tea and Coffee was included in the price, it was good to be ablate...

Never had a poor meal at the Dining Club, but at our last dinner the club was on a different level. The Pork menu displayed every skill in the book and was a triumph from start to finish. Needless to say one of our party asked for a membership form on departure.

We visited the Dining Club for Sunday lunch. The place was busy but as usual the service was brilliant and friendly. The menu was a good balance with fish starters and the most delicious beef with a fantastic gravy. The whole menu was fantastic and the best beef I have had. The other guests were so friendly and it made... More

Been on many occasions and the food, service and ambience are always wonderful. I usually have the alternative menu options as I don't eat meat and they are always special and equally as imaginative as the regular dishes. I think the price is great too given the whole package and the fact you can take your own wine! Definitely recommended!

Recently enjoyed the North African evening with friends. Superb food and great surroundings with very attentive yet unobtrusive service. I like being able to take my own bottles of wine to enjoy for a nominal corkage charge. The menus are excellent value for money especially given the quality of the produce, the presentation and the intimate setting.

We ate here with friends last Saturday and can see why it's been voted number 1 restaurant in Deal. The food is a set menu of 5 courses for £29.50 plus a cheese board for £9 for 2 which is definitely worth it. You eat in individual dining rooms depending on the group size which makes it more personal and... More
