We have previously been to the East Coast Dining Room (on two other occasions) and really enjoyed the meal. So, we decided to book it for a friend's 50th birthday lunch. When we arrived at the restaurant we were warmly welcomed and taken to a great table (with perfectly chilled British bubbly at the table as previously requested). The menu had great choices and the wine list was just the right mix and length and grouped by cost - which was helpful. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and every plate left the table empty. The service and space between courses was spot on for us - at no time did we feel overlooked or rushed - which provided the perfect balance for a celebratory meal. We felt the overall cost of the experience for the four of us reflected both the quality of the food, the portion size - and the quality of the wines. We all left the restaurant very happy and will have fond memories of the birthday celebration. We don't often write reviews as they can be subjective. However, this experience was beyond our expectations so we wanted to record that. We hope to return next time we are on the coast. With thanks to the team that served and cooked on Saturday.

Very much enjoyed the food, the excellent wine list and impeccable service. Moving to the area & this will probably be our 'local' restaurant - only drawback is the unnecessary "music." It detracts from the elegant, subdued, classy atmosphere.

The East Coast Dining Room never fails to offer fantastic food, excellent service and great value for money. The food is wonderful and imaginative, using local seasonal produce. Definitely a much favoured restaurant by me and my friends.

We had an amazing meal with friendly but attentive service. The oysters in particular are amongst the best we've ever had. A real "find" and we hope to revisit.

Food, drink and service were excellent. No-one in our party of 5 had a bad word to say about it. It did seem a bit quiet for a Sunday lunch. There were plenty of spare tables and did feel a bit self-conscious of being loud.

Food was excellent; the strawberry ice cream especially; wine good. As it was a supper club, it was very busy. Everyone was having a good time, but being miseries, it was a bit too noisy for our taste, to be honest. Service was also a little slow initially. But, on the plus side, supper club is great value for money.
