Top destinations for an expertly-mixed cocktail in Surrey

The Ascot Bar

Pennyhill Park, London Road, Bagshot, Surrey GU19 5EU. Web: exclusive.co.uk

There are not many places that you can be supping a top-quality cocktail and bump into an England rugby star passing through these days but Pennyhill Park’s The Ascot Bar is one of them, as the team are based at the hotel.

The Botanist

Townhall Buildings, The Borough, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7ND. Web: thebotanist.uk.com

“Curious libations with added botanicals...” The Botanist is a secret garden that has bloomed and bloomed across the country – you can even order a ‘watering can’ for sharing.

Cattle and Cocktail

10 Station Road West, Oxted, Surrey RH8 9EP. Web: cattleandcocktail.co.uk

A steak restaurant that specialises in cocktails? Sounds good to us. While the beef brings the brawn, there’s plenty of finesse to their Champagne selections – and they don’t shy away from throwing a little fizz into the mix of their cocktails either.

Caballo Lounge

11 High Street, Epsom, Surrey KT19 8DA. Web: thelounges.co.uk

The furnishings at Caballo Lounge are as bright as the ingredients in their drinks. This is a place to sit back, relax and sup with friends – fittingly for such a sit down and enjoy place, it used to be a furniture shop.

Komo

Weymead House, Millbrook, Guildford, Surrey GU1 3YA. Web: komo.co.uk

A great one for live music here. They also take their ingredients seriously enough to introduce coffee from the local roastery, Redber, into the mix. Not a coffee fan? How does a Komo Spritz (passion fruit liqueur, lime, raspberries, cranberry and rosé prosecco) sound?

The Long Bar

Guildford Harbour Hotel, 3 Alexandra Terrace High Street, Guildford, Surrey GU1 3DA. Web: guildford-harbour-hotel.co.uk

As its name would suggest, taking centre stage here is a spectacular sweeping 120ft marble top bar. Their cocktail list doesn’t quite give the bar a run for its money in length, but it’s extensive nevertheless.

Red

105 Queens Road, Weybridge, Surrey KT13 9UJ. Web: red-restaurant.co.uk

Long a celeb haunt in a town used to famous faces, sit back and enjoy an Espresso Martini or Diamond Surrey Fizz (Zubrowka, elderflower and apple juice – shaken and rounded off with Luc Belaire Brut), while listening to live music or the latest resident DJ.

So Bar

10 Brewers Lane, Richmond, Surrey TW9 1HH. Web: sobar-richmond.co.uk

An intimate table service bar, found off the beaten track down Brewers Lane near Richmond Green, So Bar certainly keeps the drinkers talking. Their Smokey Mexicana and Bloody Mary are particularly special, while a bowl of Jamaican John Thirsty should keep you and a few friends busy.

Stovell’s

125 Windsor Road, Chobham, Surrey GU24 8QS. Web: stovells.com

First and foremost, this is a restaurant – and an exceptional one at that. But, they’re also home to an exciting and intimate cocktail bar – oh, and they produce their own gin. Multi-tasking! From barrel-aged cocktails via traditional offerings, this is very much a place for pre-fine dining connoisseurs.

The Winterton Arms

Petworth Road, Chiddingfold, Surrey GU8 4UU. Web: thewinterton.pub

A country pub that takes its drink offering very, very seriously, the list of gins here is long enough to open a shop with. Cocktails like Pink, Tea & Tonic (gin, rose and white pomegranate tea and tonic) mean there are adventurous flavours to explore.
