The £10 per household membership fee is probably the best £10 we spend each year. With a menu that changes at least weekly you could be excused for thinking that the quality may suffer, in our experience, this is certainly not the case. On the numerous occasions we have visited this eclectic bijou restaurant, hidden away in the conservation area... More

Had an amazing meal at The Dining Club on 9th May - "A Celebration of Herbs." All five courses were delicious and bursting with amazing flavours. The tuna, appetiser, and Sea Bass, the main course, were to die for. Scott certainly surpassed himself with this particular menu. I am coeliac ( there were 2 of us that particular evening) and...

Had a superb meal at The Dining Club last night - booked on the off-chance as a post-election cheer up - and, incredibly, I reckon the food is getting even better. It is within a gnat's eyelash of the standard of food we experience in South Africa, which is the best we have eaten anywhere in the world. This was... More

We came here for dinner on a recommendation and depending on the week you come there are differing menus.Our menu on the evening we came was themed on Spain. We had five courses which included fried manchego cheese, a chorizo, bacon and bean soup, a lovely crab tart, a rich beef and chic pea course, and then followed by a... More

This was our second visit to The Dining Club. Once again a wonderful experience. As ever, the evening's menu was themed. Tonight was Spain, and the five courses took in fried manchego cheese, a deeply flavoursome chorizo and bean soup, crab tart, a beef course, and all finished off with a Catalonian orange creame cake. All totally delicious, served with... More

Another great evening at the Dining Club. The food, as always, was excellent and imaginative and Suzanne, Scott and the team always strike the right balance of friendly and professional. Love this place.
