Emlyn Restaurant, Dorking

Judge Jane Garrett says:

“The Emlyn Restaurant at the Burford Bridge Hotel offers an exciting gastronomic adventure. It aims to create a contemporary cuisine using local produce wherever possible and the dishes are beautifully presented, taste wonderful and have unexpected juxtapositions of ingredients that work. There is a passion in its support for local farms, and the desire to create something different that comes across in the menu and the dishes. Service and staff attitude are great: helpful, knowledgeable but not intrusive.”

Highly commended:

Kinghams, Shere

La Barbe, Reigate
