The Dining Room restaurant review, Leigh on Sea, Essex

The Dining Room prawn cocktail

The Dining Room prawn cocktail

The interior of the Dining Room is modern, contemporary and comfortable. We liked the layout and were seated at a nice table near the bar. The Manager was very friendly and took time to chat and the service was very good – they serve wine and food in a professional manner which we like.

The menu was inspiring enough and I opted for a Prawn & Crayfish with Mixed Salad & Mary Rose Sauce to start, which was a huge portion, but with a light and delicious dressing, so I managed to polish most of it off! For main, I had the sea bass fillets (Fillet of Sea Bass with Grilled Courgettes & Olive Oil Dressing) which were cooked beautifully with the creamiest mash I have had in a long time.

Michael’s choices were not quite as successful, but not bad either. He had the Chargrilled Vegetable with Ciabatta Bread & Balsamic Reduction vegetables to start. They were really good – just perhaps lacking something….. His main of Lobster Linguini, Chilli & Sun Blushed Tomato Sauce, unfortunately, didn’t have much lobster in it, so he was disappointed, but the flavour was good.

We shared an Eton Mess to finish as we were quite full, and that is worth having if you have a sweet tooth!

I like a restaurant that does champagne by the glass, as Michael doesn’t always want champagne, and we prefer wine with our meal, so I was pleased to find they had Paul Herard Brut Champagne NV by the glass – £7. Very nice!

I wish I could remember the wine we had, but I will update this review when I go back again and get the name as it was really good!

I would recommend this restaurant!
