Very pleasant lunch

Well treated and very nice lunch. We ate off the set lunch menu which we felt was good value. I do agree that although the service we received was very good 12.5% is quite a steep service charge. Food well presented and tasty but not exceptional. Nice place for a lunch.

I booked The Dining Room for our belated office Christmas lunch. Although I arrived early I was warmly greeted by Tony Tobin and his staff. We were very well looked after and the food was excellent. I do not have a large appetite but I enjoyed the food so much I waddled out. we were allowed to mis and match... More

We enjoyed our meal at Tobin's restaurant, However, like most things in life it is the little things that make for a great rather than a good experience. This was the case here. The website is way out of date and prices shown therein are incorrect. The spicy fish cake starters were ok but the only spice was in the... More

As returning diners, I'm disappointed to give Toby Tobin's restaurant a poor review. We arrived around 7 on a Saturday evening as we like to eat early before the Saturday rush. Menus arrived although we waited 40 minutes before anyone asked us if we wanted a drink. We also ordered our meal and selected a red wine. After a further... More

Arrived on a Saturday evening at 7.15pm. We're offered a drink at 8pm. Being returning diners, we were puzzled. Ordered drinks, meal choices and wine. Waiter arrived with bottle of wine we hadn't ordered. Said as much and waiter argued that we had ordered one in his hand. Showed him our choice on menu and he admitted he had wrong... More

Just back from dinner. Arrived at 7.15pm. Offered drink at 8pm. Had to ask for water, not offeree. Sent my wife's starter back THREE times as cold ( was supposed to be seared scallops). Mains arrived after an hour's wait. Food average. Not worth the wait. All diners were waiting an age for courses. The so called manager simply said... More

We went to The Dining Room for our anniversary meal last Friday. For starter I had the Smoked Haddock Scotch Egg in tomato sauce which didn't taste of Haddock at all, in fact I forgot it was supposed to be Haddock so I didn't point this out to the waiter. My wife had the Scallops which she said were excellent.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed lunch here. A good selection of food with a choice of taster, a la carte or set menu. Eating off the a la carte, it was difficult to choose but went for a starter of seared sea scallops, followed my fillet of beef for main and finished off with chocolate brownies. Although pleased with my choice I have... More
