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

On a recent visit to Cornwall we decided to visit Nathan Outlaws restaurant at Rock and also Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant in Padstow, both were excellent and equalled our expectations. On the recommendation of a local taxi driver we decided to try the Dining Room and this insignificant restaurant from the outside offered a level of cuisine to match if... More

We are based in London and eat out a lot, both in the UK and abroad. We thought we may be disappointed after reading the excellent reviews of the Dining Room but it exceeded our expectations. Really good food, superbly presented. The menu is limited - 5 choices per course - but I don't think anything would disappoint. There were... More

We had a fantastic meal at this lovely restaurant in Rock for my boyfriend's birthday in July. The food is sublime, with a very interesting menu - delicious and experimental combinations of flavours from a very talented chef. We were treated to numerous complimentary "amuse bouche", including a beetroot meringue with horseradish cream, a mini cauliflower cheese with parmesan crisps,... More

The Dining Room doesn't look like much from the outside but we decided to give it a go as we were tempted by the interesting menu. Happily, once inside we found ourselves in a comfortable and elegant restaurant. The staff were attentive and friendly, creating a great atmosphere without being intrusive. The whole place made us feel relaxed and ready... More

I really can't fault the meal or the service we enjoyed at the Dining Room. Beautiful presentation, wonderful tastes, lovely service and pretty good value considering the quality. It's an hours drive from home but we'll definitely be back soon. Well worth the journey.

We went there a day after going to Paul Ainsworth and the Dinning room is on a par with that in quality and cost. A low key dinning room with well spaced tables and a small number of covers ably managed by 2 staff. Pretty plates of food that tasted as good as they looked. Star of the show was... More
