I have reviewed The Dining Club before, this is a little different - they catered my husband's 65th birthday birthday event this weekend and it was truly superb. Not only delicious food but I also made it even more difficult for them by needing everything...More

If you live in Deal and aren't a member of this club, you're crazy. This one-off dining experience is such a surprise for a small town like Deal. It’s not a restaurant that you just walk into. One must be a member to make a...More

Hi Cathy, We are a couple and are members of The Dining Club, they do cater for 2/3 people, or people on their own too, as well as larger groups. Hope this helps.

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
