Judge Christopher Moore says:

“The customer service from start to finish was impeccable, friendly and discreet. The front of house team, led by Sarah, were all very knowledgeable about the menu and Eric’s passion for his contemporary French/Mediterranean dishes. The menu was well balanced, with imaginative flavours. The presentation was stunning and the portions were a good size, too.”

Highly commended:

Nick Sinclair at Emlyn Restaurant, Dorking

Chris Richards at Queens Head, East Clandon
