Yep, all good

Nice food, well prepared and freshly cooked. Service is good as you’d expect and the environment is lovely for a relaxed family meal or a business lunch / dinner. All round, very good.

Supper at The Dining Room is always fabulous. The food and atmosphere make for a very enjoyable evening. The service is superb and Tony Tobin often welcomes and serves at table himself. The standard of cooking is outstanding and the mid week menu is not expensive given the standard of cooking.

We had the set lunch menu in early July and it was unbelievably good, even more so at 18.95 (I think!) for three courses. Portions were generous, especially the slow cooked barbecue rib of beef which was full of taste and flavour, accompanied by triple cooked chunky chips - fabulous! A great feature was a gin menu listing half a... More

The Dining Room on the High Street is in my opinion the very best in Reigate. Tony Tobin is a great chef and demands perfection from his chefs and waiting staff. All the food is good its impossible to say what's best, you will not be disappointed. The Dining room waiting staff look as thought they were trained in France... More

Super food, beautifully presented with good service. Tony Tobin is now "front of house" and makes you feel very welcome. Cooking was to a high standard and atmosphere of the restaurant made me want to go again.

I've lived in the area for many years, always dined out at la Barbe but always meant to visit this restaurant. So on Friday night we went for our monthly date night and came away feeling indifferent. The food was absolutely delicious but it was something about the atmosphere, a near desserted setting for a Friday, and a tired and... More

I really liked this place, very classy but not intimidating decor, the bar upstairs is a great place to go for an aperitif and has a fantastic range of gins - if you like gin (I don't). Food and service are of an extremely high standard and in terms of value for money; well I would expect to pay at... More

The Dining Room never fails to disappoint! Staff are always attentive but not over bearing, suitable for slightly larger groups and meals for one or two. The menu changes seasonally and it is refreshing to see Tony Tobin there so often, showing a real hands on approach and a sense of pride. It is always nice to have drinks in... More

Delicious food and great service; we went for the tasting menu and they were very happy to accommodate for a vegetarian and also were happy to change the lamb main for veal. It was a lovely evening and we hope to return very soon!
