Amazing food!

Me and my partner have dined out alot in various types of restaurants and I must say the food here was amazing. From starter to main and desert nothing was disappointing. On top of that the service was second to none and had a lovely warm environment.

This was an interesting restaurant..they seem like they try to be Michelin star style, but fail. I went with my partner as a bday treat but we were both disappointed. The food looked great but wasn't full of flavour. And the service was slow and they weren't very busy. Looks great and has such potential but sadly didn't live up... More

I have rated very few restaurants with an 'excellent'. Perhaps my last such review was the Square in Bruton Place, London. So by giving The Dining Room an 'excellent' this means that this restaurant in Rock is one of the best that I have ever been to. I had heard much about this modestly-presented restaurant, somewhat curiously situated in a... More

Just a pleasure to take my girlfriend celebrating her 30th birthday. We got back from a trip in London visiting The Shard, Gordon Ramsey's, And a few other 5 star's and this more than matched up! The staff are lovely, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. Great price, great wine list and a great menu.. Couldn't find... More

Waited 9 months to visit this restaurant,and can honestly say it was well worth the wait. From the outside the restaurant looks nothing special, this all changes once you step through the door. Lovely warm welcome, lovely calming surroundings, soft music and very attentive staff,but the show stopper is the food. Fantastic culinary skills demonstrated and presented with beautiful flavours.... More

My husband and I ate at the Dining Room again yesterday evening for our third visit. Our first visit had the real wow factor; the second was a little less good as there was a large table booked at the same time as us. Yesterday was back to the best. The service was attentive (I note the negative comment below... More

Our meal here was the perfect end to our holiday in Cornwall. We had been told that this was a very special restaurant but it exceeded our high expectations. After a warm and friendly welcome, we had the difficult choice of choosing our meal as it all sounded wonderful. The delicious canapés, tempting freshly made rolls and butter, exquisite mains...
