I have known this restaurant for many years and it is a place we return to for special occasions. The food is very fresh and the cuisine is delicious. The staff are friendly, deft, experienced and always there when you want them. We always enjoy our visits - which we wish could be more frequent.

We were here for a family celebration and had a really lovely meal. We all had three courses and were impressed with everything we'd ordered. The food was very nicely presented and tasted amazing. Service was a little slow towards the end of the meal, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, so overalll it was a great evening.... More

Having not been to The Dining Room for some time, we were not disappointed.. The room was comfortable, the service good but unobtrusive and the food first class. Highly recommended.

Have been here many times, food amazing as always but sadly the service was not so great. It was my husbands birthday, Thursday night not busy only 12 people, 3 waiting staff, very polite but not very attentive, had to ask for the wine to be topped up more than once, had to find someone to ask for the bill....

Amazing food. I had the taster menu with matching wines which was perfect. My partner had scallops, turbot and banoffee profiteroles. All very good. Minor issues in that the kitchen was slow, I had to remind the waiter to swap out one of the wines when I changed from lamb to fish on the main and the maitre d' saved... More

We have been going to the Dining Room for many years and always have a great experience. We have had special family events there, evening meals with friends or on our own and especially enjoy Sunday lunch. Love the food staff and the atmosphere. You can purchase gift vouchers from the restaurant, I find this a great present.

Booked for daughter's birthday occasion. Usually visit twice a year. All the front tables were taken creating a pleasing atmosphere. Service was prompt but not rushed. All meals served as requested and delicious. Orders taken by Tony Tobin which was a nice touch. Celebratory decorated plate presented with desert to mark the birthday girl - note they don't do a...

Fantastic food & service for a Saturday evening. Toby Tobin took our order & had some friendly banter with our table.
