Top notch fine dining experience by the seaside. This restaurant has the usual atmosphere associated with a posh dining experience with a smart dining room, crisp table linen and attentive service but manages to also be incredibly laid back as befitting its "by the seaside" holiday location. We shambled in as a family group with three children pretty much in... More

I brought some friends here who were visiting and they were just as impressed as I was. The whole evening was an experience rather than just a meal. So many little details and amazing attentive service it was a wonderful evening and I will definitely be returning. I would say the creative menu and service was on par with some... More

Another year and my annual homage to my favourite restaurant in the UK The consistency , the quality of ingredients ( hand churned butter & in house baked bread ) the subdued ambience and the fact that Fred, Donna and Philippa hold it all together in such a sublime way ! Happy to see they have ( at last moved... More

Possibly the best meal I have experienced. The service was great. The menu was varied. The surroundings were classy and welcoming for our party of ten. The main course of lamb was cooked to perfection and the chocolate dessert was very tasty. An excellent meal for a special occasion.

Absolutely the best meal we've had in Cornwall for years. The food was amazing and the service was spot on, a pleasure to see a small menu of well crafted and innovative dishes. Great wine list too. We will be back.

We visited The Dining Room while on holiday in Rock and booked a table. Family arrived late and we asked if we could extend the booking to 10 people but were told no, because if you have a table for 10 or more people you must pre-pay and choose your food beforehand because the kitchen can't cope if they are...
