Year after year the standard is outstanding

It is no mean feat to keep up this very high standard year after year. No silly branding with a celebratory chief's name, which does really provide food of the highest standard. The Dinning Room does this with the same core team and it is a real joy to go there and the pricing remains sensible. We... read more

We visited the Dining room in Rock in July. We have been past on many occasions and been put off by the tea room type facade. However great reviews on tripadvisor made us give it a try. The interior is much better than the exterior suggests, with muted beiges etc. All very tastefully done up. I think the restaurant only... More

We went to the dining room to celebrate a birthday and weren't disappointed. The menu is quite small but caters for everyone. This is true fine dining at its best!! The restaurant itself is an intimate venue, it feels very relaxed and all the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Spoilt for choice when it came to the drinks menu,... More

We went there for a birthday celebration and everything was superb. The food was innovative and cooked perfectly. It has to rate as one of the best restaurants I've been to. The service was friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. The wine list is comprehensive and the white Rioja we had was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We enjoyed a good meal with friends at The Dining Room. Menu is reassuringly short, a classic 'fine dining' experience with good local ingredients, crab, cod, strawberries etc. the homemade bread was delicious, the canapés interesting - I've never had beet root meringue with goats cheese cream before, they were delicious. With wine and gratuity the bill was around £100... More

We visited this place on the back of the excellent reviews and it lived up to expectation and more. The food was incredible, it was quite clear this chef went to a lot of thought and hours of careful planning to create and perfect these dishes. We felt as though we were in a Michilin star restaurant with the quality... More

After reading glowing reviews for The Dining Room, I booked a table to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary with my wife and our closest friends. We were certainly not disappointed! The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. A true fine dining experience. We will be back! Thoroughly recommended.

With the very many excellent reviews on trip advisor we were expecting a memorable dining experience. Well, we were certainly not disappointed. The complimentary amuse bouche dishes were an excellent start the meal. While the menu had a limited number of dishes the selection was sufficiently varied to cater for everyone's taste. The dishes were presented exceptionally well and the... More

This was our first visit but certainly will not be the last. The food was of a standard seldom found outside of the Capital but at a very reasonable price. The Chef deserves the highest accolade for being so creative yet ensuring that each mouthful is delicious. This is no ordinary dining experience yet you are able to enjoy a... More
