Harden's survey result
“Eric and Sarah Guignard continue to command a loyal following with their innovative modern French cuisine, relaxed and friendly hospitality and carefully chosen wine list” at this long-standing bright spark in the ’burbs: “a surprising find” (if a “cramped” one) for first timers, providing “amazing value in the heart of suburbia”. As one of Surrey’s better restaurants, it commands a much-more-than-local clientele: “we travel for at least one and a half hours by car/taxi then train to eat here; if we lived closer we would dine at TFT at least twice a month”. Top Top – “lunch is a steal that’s well worth braving Surbiton for”.
“An unexpected find for such a modest suburban location” – Sarah & Eric Guignard’s well-known bright spark in a shopping parade “consistently maintains a high standard” and is “still providing memorably good food after all these years in its slightly poky setting”. The cuisine has a discernible French accent but comes with “creative touches” (“there’s always something that’s exciting to try!”). “The attentive service is just right” too – “helpful without being distracting”.
“Fully-booked, all night, even on a wet Thursday evening, in deepest Surbiton!!” – this well-discovered Gallic gem can, to first timers, seem like “an amazing find for somewhere hidden in a suburban shopping parade on a minor road”. “Consistently excellent over many years, it’s a fantastic achievement for the husband & wife proprietors”, Sarah and Eric Guignard. “Seasonal produce is always centre-stage and unfussily marshalled into unfailingly delicious dishes, while front-of-house staff make you feel very well looked after”. “I feel genuinely blessed to have such a wonderful restaurant so close to where I live!”
This “ever popular French gem lost in suburbia”, delivers “a really enjoyable experience every time”. The interior is “slightly poky”, but that’s the sole caveat: service is “with grace and kindness” with “excellent attention by owner Sarah” and the cuisine is both “faultless and sensibly priced”.
‘You can go to many expensive restaurants in London and other countries but you still come back to The French Table as one of the best at delivering exciting, tasty and frankly fantastic food. Each course leaves you dwelling on what makes each morsel so delicious-is it the herb used, or is there cream added? It’s simply heaven for any foodie.’ OpenTable Diner, 2015 Private Dining Our private room is located on the first floor and ideal for group bookings of 16 (up to a maximum of 32 guests) Available Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday Dinner - with a required minimum spend of £800.

The French Table Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Amazing tasting menu"
"One of the best meals we've ever had anywhere in the world. The entire tasting menu was delicious, the cod was sublime. As ever excellent service with little touches for our silver and seeing anniversary. Wine flight was interesting, mostly I agreed with the pairings but personally felt that the Vinho Verde didn't balance against the scallop dish and the Pinot Noir with the cod wasn't a perfect marriage for me. "
"Always a treat to dine at this lovely restaurant where good food and wine are the order of the day."
