We booked the two upstairs rooms at The Dining Club for our special family birthday get-together and to cut a long story short, it was an occasion to be remembered. On discussing the occasion beforehand Suzanne was most accommodating regarding the venue and menu. On the day itself the rooms looked great and the meal was superb in every way.... More

Since moving to the area we have eaten here several times and, whenever we take guests, they always want to return! The menus are imaginative and every course is superb.

I liked the idea of this restaurant. Taking you own drinks is great and saves a fortune. Staff are lovely, also i like if there are any extras they offer them round. Good value for money and lovely food.

A lovely place to dine in a relaxed atmosphere with friends/family. Be open minded and sometimes try a new dish, you won't be disappointed. Scott is an excellent chief. You might need to book in advance as it is very popular and only seats a set number.

We visited the Dining Club as a group of 7 and were allocated their lovely room at the top! The lady that served us was very attentive throughout the evening - the service was fantastic. Upon arrival all our drinks were taken away and chilled for us and then served upon request. On the evening we visited the menu was... More

Wow what an experience. We went on Scandinavian night which at first I was a bit apprehensive about the food, but once it arrived I enjoyed it all. One of the highlights for me is that you feel like you are sitting round a friends house having dinner so you feel so relaxed and comfortable. I would highly recommend The... More

Visiting the Dining Club is always a pleasure, not the least because of the wide range of food that is offered. This lunch, a Middle Eastern Menu, was no exception with 4 very different, but all lovely, courses. For £17.50. Really excellent value for money.

The Dining Club although now established for 7 years, is a new style of dining venue. It is unique in that you book a table and will be seated in individual dining rooms that feel more like a private dinner party than a restaurant - Proprietors Scott & Suzanne Roberts offer unrivalled hospitality that can be a discreet or familiar as your company requires.
Scott (Head Chef & Proprietor) has been cooking for over 20 years and has previously won 2AA Rosettes for 6 consecutive years whilst running his family owned hotel in Boscastle, North Cornwall. Wife, Suzanne (Front of house & Proprietor) has been in the hospitality industry for 25 years and will provide a warm, friendly welcome and ensure that your experience compliments the food
