Beautiful Meal

Relaxed immaculate surroundings to enjoy food that is well presented and bursting with flavours. This is one of those places that is too busy to blow its own trumpet because it is concentrating on providing a quality eating experience for guests. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

Blown away, what an experience from start to finish. I get why it's called 'the dining room'. You are made to feel like home from home.. (With out the washing up!) I am a big foodie being a chef so its hard to please me.. The food is just on another level. The service was punctual but never over powering.... More

We had to change our booking twice as we were stuck in traffic driving over from Devon. We eventually made it for 8.15 after originally being booked in for 7pm, this was no problem for the staff who gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. We struggled to choose from the menu as everything looked so delicious so we... More

The food was incredible! It's almost hidden away a short walk up from the beach but is fantastic. We had such a delicious meal. The lamb with courgette purée stood out as a highlight, so too did the chocolate ganache, incredible! Great service and wines as well. Will certainly recommend it to others and be back again!!!

Arranged for four of us for dinner whilst we were staying in Rock, though unfortunately because I had to collect my eldest daughter from Exeter stn after she had to see a consultant in Bristol - for some serious medical issues - we were half an hour late; my wife and 15 year old daughter explained we would be 30...

We had a table of 6, no views, a bit of a converted shop, but great atmosphere inside, and very relaxing. Husband ( Kitchen ) and Wife ( Front of house ), made us feel very welcome...fresh homemade bread to get us started...and we then went for 3 straight courses, each one great. This was somewhere special away from the... More

The Dining is a hidden gem as good as any of the posh nosh restaurants either side of the estuary. Delightful front of house staff led by co owner Donna, really great food prepared by Fred and his team (the other co owner and prices that put many to shame ...some would say they should even be outlawed!

Came here for an anniversary dinner whilst on holiday. Simply the best meal we've had in a long time. Lovely quirky setting, great service and out-of-this-world food. If you're in the area and want a special meal out, you must come to The Dining Room.

We went to the dinning room for a family dinner and we weren't disappointed. The food and the service was top notch and we would recommend it without hesitation. About £60 per head with desserts and wine but worth the money.

A truly spectacular meal; we cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. Do not miss out. Simple, elegant surroundings and with understated and brilliantly professional service. A joy. A wonderful memory
