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

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
