Rumwong Thai Restaurant

18-20 London Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 2AF

Located at the top of London Road, near to G Live, The Rumwong has grown from a small and modest restaurant to one of the most renowned Thai restaurants in the area. Rumwong is the sister restaurant to the Thai Terrace, however, I personally prefer the atmosphere at the Rumwong, where the service is good and it is a great place to come and enjoy truly authentic Thai food.

77 South Street Dorking, Surrey, RH4 2JU

Sorrel offers modern fine dining at its best. This award winning restaurant in Dorking is simply wonderful. The ambience, service and the delicious beautifully presented dishes make this restaurant a very special place to dine. Trust me, once you have visited you will leave planning your next visit. You will definitely need to book in advance. Click here for the menu.

The Grantley Arms

The Street, Wonersh, Guildford, Surrey, GU5 0PE

The Grantley Arms is situated in the picturesque village of Wonersh. I really enjoy coming to this pub, not only for the tasty food but for the friendly atmosphere.  I totally agree with how the owners describe it  “Casual enough to be comfortable, smart enough to feel special’. It is a great place to come with friends and family and I can highly recommend the Sunday roast. There is a private dining room which seats up to 22 people and is a nice option for a special occasion. There is a good choice of dishes available, click here for the menu.


447 Kingston Road, Epsom, Surrey, KT19 0DB

This top Indian restaurant is run by two former head chefs at Mayfair’s Michelin starred Gymkhana. Dastaan offers a fantastic range of delicious dishes, full of fresh flavours  which will not disappoint. Vegetarians are also well catered for here. It is good to know that you don’t have to trek to London and pay high prices for authentic award winning curry! Click here for the menu.
