First time at the dining room having had lots of recommendations. The dinner exceeded all our expectations - welcoming staff, great service, beautifully presented food and amazing flavours. Looking forward to returning in the summer.

Had another superb meal at The Dining Room. Food, service and presentation excellent. Cannot understand why they have not got a michelin star rating at this family run business. This establishment is simply brilliant.

We were staying in the St Enedoc Hotel and wanted to go out for dinner on our second night. The restaurant is very close to the hotel and well worth a visit. The restaurant is family run; the service was excellent and so was the food.

We have a house no more than 2mins walk from this incredible restaurant and have always been put off going by the look of the exterior. WHAT a mistake. On recommendations from several friends, we finally took the plunge this Easter. WOW indeed. We have been lucky enough to eat at some amazing michelin starred restaurants all over the world... More

A great surprise! Great food and excellent service- would thoroughly recommend. Please don't be put off by the rather uninspiring exterior- the decor inside is elegant as is the food.

We ate here as a celebration for my birthday in April and had a lovely evening. With a very warm welcome and comfortable surroundings the food (and wine) were superb. And although we hadn't mentioned the reason for our visit they heard my husband say 'happy birthday' to me and I was given a delicious platter of desserts and a... More

The décor was stylish and elegant, all the tables beautifully presented. Ordering was a pleasure, the menu including some mouth-watering seasonal choices for Spring. The food was incredible.

We have been to The Dining Room several times and are always extremely impressed with the exceptional food and service. It is one of the best restaurants we have been to and up there with the top in Cornwall. A must visit for anyone coming to the area. Superbly cooked and presented food in our view it is more than...
