Went here recently with the wife, very good Saturday evening meal. Very good level of innovation while maintaining solid classic roots. The basket of bread was excellent too, very fresh and very tasty with a nice range. The terrine was one of the highlights and again excellent - some nicely chosen accompaniments Will definitely return

Sitting in the opulent upstairs bar or in the restaurant you could be anywhere in the world. Lovely food, fabulous attentive staff, great setting.

We decided to try The Dining Room based on their Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Our first visit was on a Tuesday evening and on arrival we were warmly welcomed. We started with a drink in their lovely garden which is a real plus as no other places in Boroughbridge seem to have a pleasant outdoor seating area.... More

This is truly a night of firsts, the starters were followed by the very best and most tender fillet steak I've ever had. Can't wait for pudding! Not at all disappointed! My Creme brûlée was fantastic! Call me bias but I love eating and socialising at The Dining Room Boroughbridge!

Once again our evening at the Dining Room Boroughbridge was an outstanding experience. This is one of our favourite places to eat, and every time feels like a special occasion. There is always a warm welcome, and it is a pleasure to sit in the comfortable and stylish lounge, choose a drink from the extensive and sensibly priced wine/cocktail list.... More

While staying in Boroughbridge I was able to eat in The Dining Room on two occasions - lucky me! The food was absolutely delightful; all fresh produce and exremely well cooked, providing culinery delights. The service was always discreet, efficient and very friendly. I would highly recommend The Dining Room for anyone passing through this area.

We spent the evening here with friends on Saturday 28th May and we have to say it was fantastic from start to end the service was excellent the location great, the interior was totally unexpected you would not realise from the outside as it does look quite compact but it opens up into a very large space the furnishings are...

Really like this place. The décor is great with a lovely lounge upstairs for a pre dinner cocktail and the dining room downstairs very welcoming. The service is very good but not rushed. We enjoyed the food; obviously very fresh and well presented. It was slightly bland though, so will have to go back and sample some of the other... More
