We went to The Dining Room with 2 friends (both foodies.) Between us we had over the years eaten at some of the UK's finest restaurants. We all agreed that this as the best meal we had ever had. The presentation of every course (starting with the divine canapes) was superb and each course offered a superb combination of taste... More

We visited again during our annual visit to Rock, on Halloween weekend. Actually dined on the Thursday evening as fully booked on both Friday & Saturday and booked in August, another testament to how great this place is! Service is excellent, efficient yet unassuming, and the menu absolutely brilliant! Could have chosen any main course and been very happy! I... More

The Dining Room is the best place to eat in the locale....it is also one of my all-time favourite restaurants. I am fussy. I love cooking & I adore good food. I am SO fussy about food that sometimes I would rather stay in & cook for myself lest I be disappointed by the cuisine elsewhere. Dining out has to... More

Charming dining room, beautiful service, the prettiest plates of food that delight the eye, even before you eat. This was a return visit, our first was 2 years ago. The standards remain extremely high. This is a lovely place to go and I don't understand why the Michelin people haven't recognised The Dining Room. The bill was fair for the... More

Chris W's review has taken words out of my mouth. Totally agree. Went with 3 friends for dinner. Warmly welcomed, enticing menu which more than exceeded our expectations. We were well satiated. Very enjoyable evening.

As all the previous reviewers have stated this restaurant serves great food served perfectly cooked and presented by staff that are friendly and knowledgeable, even remembering you from previous visits. Every part of the meal was excellent except for 1, the portions are very small and after paying £57 per head for a 3 course meal and a reasonable bottle... More

This restaurant far exceeded our already high expectations from reading previous reviews on this site. The intimate and non pretentious ambience created by this family run restaurant should not distract from the delights of culinary genius that awaits its diners. The food was truly exquisite. The combination flavours were exciting and both my husband's dishes and mine were delicious. We... More

We have eaten at The Dining Room twice recently and on both occasions the food has been amazing. The quiet and calm atmosphere adds to the feeling of being spoilt and each group I went with felt this was a very special place. just the place for a special occasion.

Its seems everyone has had an equally special experience at The Dining Room. A fairly unassuming looking place from the outside, but a lovely cosy and attractive dining room inside. The services was brilliant and table plenty spaced apart, unlike other places where you are on top of each other. The menu is selective but part of its charm. The... More

I ate at The Basement with 3 friends after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and speaking to the owner of the hotel we were staying in (The Woodlands Country House, Padstow) The food is very, very good. I really don't need to say much more. All 4 of us had something different and we were all delighted with our meals.... More
