On the High Street in the historic market town of Dorking, Café Rouge is an authentic brasserie-style restaurant serving an array of traditional French dishes.

As part of the nationwide group of Café Rouge, this branch offers their range of classic French dishes such as confit duck, beef bourguignon, steak frites and mussels. Smaller dishes are also on offer for a lighter bite. Particularly good value for money are the set menus for lunch and dinner (available most days). To accompany the food there is also a good range of French wines, many from less well known producers.

In true French style, breakfast is also an important meal at Café Rouge. With croissants, pain au chocolat, omelettes and croques, as well as hot chocolate, tea and all types of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

An 11-minute walk from Dorking Deepdene Rail Station, Café Rouge – Dorking offers delicious French cuisine at affordable prices.

    When booking on line we were offered the dine for £12.95 each deal. We also had a 40% off main voucher. We weren't offered the menu for the former, even though I explained the 2 deals available to me at the outset. It was basically made clear we should order from the main menu and take the 40% deal, even though it then became clear, on examining our choices, that this was the probably the most expensive option. However, we were not to know that we could have done better or been well satisfied with the £12.95 deal.
    We were celebrating and it would have been embarrassing to make a fuss, so I did not say anything.
    My wife's meal was fine. I had the duck. The beans were rubbery and almost inedible. The duck was obviously not prepared fresh for my order and was not very nice. I told the waitress so, but nothing more was said by her or offered. She said she would report my concerns, but no explanation was later offered by her about the result of my complaint. Again, we were celebrating and I did not want to make a fuss. I will think twice before returning.
    The air conditioning was such that it was really cold in the restaurant. Another customer on the next table complained, but nothing was done. The waitress told that other customer that she would report it, but again nothing was done. My wife and I had jackets, so we were ok but it would have been much better if it was warmer inside the restaurant.

    A very pleasant dinner. Minute steaks were perfectly cooked. My very fussy sister, who normally will normally find fault in something, did not have a single complaint. Our waitress even managed to fulfil our request for a desert that was not on the menu.

    Booking was very easy with quick confirmation. Lovely welcoming staff . Our table was very nicely decorated. The service was prompt despite the cafe being full. The food was wonderfull our party of 8 chose a selection of dishes which covered the whole Christmas party menu and everyone said their food was delicious. We all like the presentation especially the little saucepans of sause/graveyOne person had requested a well done steak which was medium rare but still enjoyed it. The lemon tart was light and delicious but the chocolate putting was delicious but too rich to finish. The menus was good value for moneyOverall it was a great evening with excellent service Very welcoming. We will definitely return. Thank you cafe Rouge Dorking
