We round up some of the top destinations for an expertly-mixed cocktail in Surrey

 

 

The Ascot Bar

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

“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

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.

10 Station Road West, Oxted

 

Caballo Lounge

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.

11 High Street, Epsom

 

Komo

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 Funky China Town (Fernet Branca, Southern Comfort, jasmin tea, marjoram, lemongrass and bergamot shrub, hibiscus) sound?

The Long Bar

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

Long a celeb haunt in a town used to famous faces, sit back and enjoy an Espresso Martini or Weybridge Iced Tea (5 white spirits shaken together with lemon juice and topped with Perrier Jouet), while listening to live music or the latest resident DJ.

105 Queens Road, Weybridge

 

So Bar

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

10 Brewers Lane, Richmond

 

Stovell’s

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.

125 Windsor Road, Chobham

 

The Winterton Arms

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.

Petworth Road, Chiddingfold
