Interesting themed menus based on famous chef inspirations. The food is very well prepared, of good quality and presented as one would expect. Bring your own wine(corkage applies) and this works well. A fine local reputation and well attended.

Located on one of the back streets off the main high street. Look for the menus on the window!! However, don't forget you need to be a member to book a reservation. Luckily we have family who are so it was fine. It is like private dining as the rooms are separated and have a good ambient atmosphere with willing... More

The Dining Club never fails to delight. The food is consistently excellent, the service delightful and the Dining Club 'house' is just so different. Love it for long dinners at the weekend & scrummy Sunday lunches with lots of friends. Taking your own wine is such a bonus!! When arranging menus for large groups /Suzanne is always so helpful. Don't... More

We dine here maybe 10 times a year and it is always outstanding - food, service and ambience. I can’t wait for the two upcoming bookings.

Every time we have been, including hiring he whole venue for our wedding dinner, Suzanne and Scot have been amazing, food always excellent and service wonderful. The added bonus of being able to bring ones own wine makes dinner very reasonable.

We have a been a few times and have never ceased to be staggered at the beautiful flavours that are conjured up there,the originality of the conception and the quality of the produce. Also great atmosphere....not like eating in a public restaurant....personal and more intimate....at times animated! Great fun!

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
