A tempting prospect for hungry diners, tasting menus can be difficult to read when they've already been half eaten. Enjoy a greater variety of flavours with today’s Groupon: £49 for a five course tasting meal for two at Tony Tobin @ The Dining Room.
Creating bold new flavours with time-honoured ingredients, The Dining Room serves modern British cuisine in the relaxed surroundings of historic Reigate. The head chef Tony Tobin has serviced the restaurant since 1993, in which time he's perfected a menu containing braised pork cheeks, herb-crusted cods, and baked goats' cheese tarts. Whether attending a gourmet evening with champagne reception, or lounging out in the living room bar, guests are welcomed into elegant surrounds.
Showing up in hungry pairs during the afternoon or evening, visitors can begin the taste extravaganza with a pea and pesto 'cappuccino'. The intermediate courses commence with wild boar terrine, before moving onto seared sea scallops. Roasted lamb cutlets concludes the parade of savoury sensations, and is followed by a resounding finale of warm chocolate tart, topped off with white chocolate and fudge ice cream.

The Dining Room received a tantalising 4/5 courtesy of TripAdvisors, along with a toothsome review from Surrey Life. Reviewers were keen to praise the service and ambiance, though special mentions went to the quality of the food itself.
The restaurant is beautifully appointed, fresh and welcoming. The service is efficient and polite without being obtrusive. The food is of excellent quality and beautifully presented in typical "fine dining" style.

The tasting menu makes a splendid meal for a special occassion [sic]. Atmosphere is very good and waiting staff very attentive but unobtrusive - no asking are you enjoying the meal when your mouth is full!!
