Elegant setting, good selection, super service

Ate at Toby Tobin's after several years of not going (not for any reason). Whilst the decor looks a bit tired, it is an elegant setting, the food was very well prepared and presented, with dietary requirements no issue. Service was good, other being what dessert we wanted when we'd already had... read more

We have eaten here a few times and the food was always good but we had an amazing dinner maybe three weeks ago on a Wednesday evening - everything was just delicious. We were warmly welcomed by one of the lovely waiters at the front of house who recognized us although it have been awhile since we had dined here... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times now and each time it has been very good, have had different dishes each time and have loved everyone of them as have the people we have been with. Great staff, very attentive but not too much. very relaxing and very reasonably priced meals.

We often go to The Dining Room for special occasions and it is always a pleasure. Staff are attentive and polite, food is delicious (although occasionally has been tepid upon arrival) and the restaurant is well decorated and clean. A great place for a special meal.

I'm not a fan of the so called 'celebrity chef', we have tried various establishments of this ilk and generally we have found them lacking. I want a chef to be an artisan of the craft of cooking more than someone who's main claim to fame is ponsing about on the telly. Alas our visit to the dining room has... More

I love this restaurant because it has a special vegetarian menu so I always eat something special. The other half eats meat and is well catered for. Great wine list. Attentive service. And nice touch that the proprietor greets all customers. Yes it is not cheap but worth every penny

The food in this Restaurant is excellent with fantastic service as well, the only thing I don't recommend is you sit in the door table, with the constant opening of the door it can be a very annoying and be gets quite cold as well, otherwise I cannot fault this restaurant.

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.
