I have visited this restaurant several times for dinners and afternoon teas and the quality on the food is exceptional. The chefs certainly know what they are doing. Their dinners are often 4-5 course which always makes it a wonderful evening, more of an experience...More

Hard to say anything positive about our visit for dinner: zero welcome, cramped table, harsh lighting, intrusive background music, perfunctory service - plates simply brought and taken away. No enquiries as to whether we had enjoyed the food - and maybe just as well, as...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
