Fantastic food and excellent service

We visited this restaurant for a birthday meal. The food was exceptional, the restaurant buzzing with atmosphere and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely be returning.

We attended the restaurant for the first time for my husbands birthday with a couple of friends, very warm & friendly reception. Started with the canapés which where delicious & very well presented. The food was of the best we have ever had, looked beautiful & tasted even better. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience & would go... More

We have eaten at the Dinning Room many times as a couple, with large family parties and with friends, and we have always had a wonderful meal beautifully served. As foodies who have eaten at many Micheline starred restaurants, many of whom do not match the excellent food on offer here, we continue to be baffled why the Dinning Room... More

The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was outstanding,fantastic presentation and delicious. The outside of the restaurant is unassuming, do not be fooled. It is a celebration of taste and artistic presentation.

What a fantastic night starting from the service, the ambience and most of all the fantastic food. I cannot fault it and after a week of beautiful restaurants this topped the lot. The dark chocolate ganache, slated caramel and popcorn ice cream has to be one of the most divine deserts I have ever eaten. Definitely worth a visit but... More

We have tried a couple of times to get into the Dining Rooms and they have always been full. We managed to get a reservation and can now understand why so many people book in advance. What a super restaurant. The food is just excellent, one of the nicest meals out that we have had. The service is second to... More

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
