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

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.

I have reviewed the Dining Club a number of times and each time I rate it 5 stars. We have already been four times this year and each was wonderful. Five course meal for ₤29.50 plus a small corkage charge for bringing your own wine. They supply; well thought out foods to generate uniquely themed menus. “Winter flavours”, “Valentines weekend”...

Last night was our first trip to the Dining Club, what a wonderful experience, the food was superb. I loved the intimate setting as we went as a couple and took the wine of our choice. It's fantastic value for money and we will definitely be visiting more often.
