Featured Surrey Restaurants
1. The French Table French restaurant in Surbiton 85 Maple Rd - KT6
“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”.
2. The Glasshouse British, Modern restaurant in Kew 14 Station Pde - TW9
“A five-star experience” – this posher-than-usual neighbourhood haunt, by Kew Gardens tube station is “the lowest profile in the Chez Bruce stable”. Arguably “the dining room itself is a little uninspiring, but it has a good atmosphere when it’s full”, and the operation generally shows “similar care and professionalism” to its siblings, down to the “expert cuisine”; “well chosen, affordable wine list”; and “top cheeseboard”. After a rocky patch, long term fans feel it’s “sprung back to form”, but scores have yet to hit their old highs here, and a more representative view is that “it’s not as superlative as it was, but of very high quality nevertheless”.
3. Le Salon Privé French restaurant in Twickenham 43 Crown Rd - TW1
“Excellent French food prepared by an Italian chef” – Gianluca di Monaco, who trained under the great Pierre Koffmann – wins solid ratings for this “very pretty” St Margaret’s bistro. Its prix-fixe menu offers “excellent value and choices”, ensuring it is “always busy”. Top Tip – “good venue before the rugby at nearby Twickenham”.
4. Meejana Lebanese restaurant in Weybridge 49 Church St - KT13
2018 Review: Limited but positive feedback on this ten-year-old Lebanese (which also has a Kensington sibling), praising its high standards, including enjoyable mezze, lunchtime wraps and more substantial fare.
5. Mezzet Dar Lebanese restaurant in East Molesey 39 Bridge Rd - KT8
2019 Review: “An unusual blend of cuisines that really works” – this café a short walk across the bridge from Hampton Court mixes Spanish and Lebanese inspirations in its tapas dishes, and inspires positive (if limited) feedback.
6. The Royal Oak British, Modern restaurant in Twickenham 13 Richmond Road - TW1
At Hippo Inns we want to ensure our pubs are one of a kind within the neighbourhood. Just a short stroll from Twickenham station and you’ll arrive at The Royal Oak. Spread over two floors, downstairs you’ll find a classic, relaxed pub complete with wood fire and sp...
7. Megan's at the Post Office British, Modern restaurant in Surbiton 38 Victoria Road - KT6
“Affordable and with a nice vibe” – these good-looking, all-day hang-outs major in brunch, but make reasonably-priced options for a relaxed meal at any time. This year, they added Kensington High Street and Islington to the stable and spread beyond inner London to Surbiton and St Albans.
8. Coppernose British, Modern restaurant in Hampton Court The Mitre, Hampton Court Road - KT8
Riverside views from a new boutique hotel will make this all-day restaurant (including afternoon tea), named after Henry VIII, a popular spot. Ronnie Kimbugwe, who worked with Gordon Ramsay at Claridges and also ran the food at the Bel and the Dragon inn group, is in charge of the food here and at 1665 (see also).
9. 1665 British, Modern restaurant in Hampton Court The Mitre, Hampton Court Road - KT8
There are fine riverside views from this newly refurbished boutique hotel; Ronnie Kimbugwe, who worked with Gordon Ramsay at Claridges and also ran the food at the Bel and the Dragon inn group, is in charge of the brasserie food here and the all day and afternoon tea offer at Coppernose (see also).
