Sourced from Surrey! Exactly what it says on the, er, finest watermarked paper. These are the restaurants/pub/cafes that you felt went beyond the call of duty in establishing produce from the farm down the road

Botley Hill Farmhouse, Warlingham

“From the moment we bought the farmhouse two-and-a-half years ago we started contacting local producers, so seasonal ingredients are always on the menu,” says owner Nicole Joubert. “We source from all around us; beef and lamb are raised here on the Titsey Estate, while venison and rabbit come from a local gamekeeper when in season, and apple juice is pressed for us at Hookwood. Customers really do enjoy a true local food and drink experience every time they visit, and we’d like to thank them for their support in voting for us.”

The Stephan Langton Inn, Friday Street

“Since taking over in May 2015 we have followed our vision of working with local suppliers in all our menus,” says director Anneliese Cameron. “Passionate about offering seasonal and tasty dishes, we are delighted that the inn attracts guests from round the corner to far and wide, be it for a light lunch or celebratory dinner. We’re proud to promote the wealth of local produce on our doorstep. Winners of this category in 2016, we now work with even more local producers and our talented chefs can immediately respond to what’s available.”

Waters Edge, Horsell Common

“We always set out to support local food and drink businesses so it’s great for that to be recognised with this nomination,” says chef patron Aneke Spacie. “One small example of why it’s such a good ethos for an independent business like ours is that when, just the other day, on a cold and wet Sunday, we ran out of Sir Hans Sloane hot chocolate. They’re based in West Byfleet, so we called Brin and 10 minutes later, we were re-stocked! Boz, our veg guy, is great at going to the market everyday and sourcing unusual varieties of vegetables and fruit.”
