The outside of the restaurant isn't very inspiring but the inside is a clean, fresh and modern. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. It seems a little expensive but if you take into consideration all the extras - i.e. amuse bouche, pre-starter, delicious home made bread and butter as well as petit fours together with delicious food which is...

James and I have dined here twice since we moved to rock and both times found the food incredible. We love how the restaurant is independant and all the produce is fresh, seasonal and local. The service was 5 stars and the interior design of the restaurant was simple and classy. This restaurant deserves recognition.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we actually went twice during the fortnight we were there. Firstly I would say that this place is not cheap so anyone on a tight budget should give it a miss. However if you want a special treat then if you go to only one restaurant in Rock go here. The...

We ate on a Sunday evening with few customers there. It was our first visit. It certainly will not be our last. The welcome was easy and professional. The menu was explained clearly. Generous glasses of champagne. Excellent bread rolls. We had a tasty and inventive amuse bouche, then followed by another ! A choice of five starters, five mains,... More

Possibly the finest meal we have ever had, and coupled with excellent and very friendly service we can't recommend The Dining Room highly enough.

This has to be one of the best eating experiences in Cornwall, small, intimate, relaxed, amazing staff and the food is just fantastic. The chocolate pudding was so increadable I just didn't want it to end, it made me feel so happy eating it. I've been to the Dining room several times and I've never been disappointed. If you are...

Having visited Rock for a number of years, finally decided to go the Dining Room. Wow! Fabulous food, wonderfully presented and lovely friendly staff. All the dishes we had were universally enjoyed and we all agreed the amount of detail and effort was worthy of a Michelin starred restaurant. Highly recommended.

Came here in September 2015 whilst on holiday and now returned to the dining room, once again. Just like the first visit, the whole evening was faultless. Attention to detail across all areas is impeccable. Once you walk into the restaurant its like walking into another world. The food is outstanding, from canapés, amuse bouche, fresh baked bread, homemade butter,... More
