Just 30 minutes from London, the 3 AA Rosette award-winning Clock House is an outstanding gastronomic dining establishment in the scenic village of Ripley.

Housed within an impressive red-brick Georgian building, The Clock House Restaurant offers beautiful views of the garden from the boutique-style dining room which exudes a light and airy ambience. Oozing flair and finesse, the delectable dishes from The Clock House menu are presented with elegant simplicity and strong flavours from the fresh, seasonal produce.

Amongst the signature dishes are lamb saddle with slow cooked belly, thyme and braised chicory or the halibut served in a rich oyster cream with sea purslane, radish and sea water sauce. Tempting and decadent, the dessert menu at The Clock House Surrey boasts sample dishes like the delicious warm pistachio cake with black olive and banana parfait.

The relaxed lounge area at The Clock House Ripley features local gallery art and drinks are served in the walled garden during the summer. The exceptionally well picked wines also complement the superb menu.

    The Tasting menu was the best we have had. Staff, as always, efficient and courteous.

    This was our first time there, so we do not have favourite dishes yet but we definitively will come back to try some more. The freshness and flavour of the vegetables are obviously a hit. I particularly enjoyed the chilian sauvignon blanc with the cod.

    This was our first visit to the Clockhouse.. We enjoyed every aspect of our dinner - the food was excellent and well-presented, the staff were attentive and the dining room had a lovely ambience with plenty of room between tables.

    We were celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary! We had lunch after a visit to Wisley and we were absolutely delighted with our experience at Drakes. The staff were exceptional. Chris has a prawn allergy so we decided to order the cod without the brown shrimp accompaniment. When our mains arrived the cod contained brown shrimp and the waiter immediately removed the meal. We asked for the other meal to be kept warm. Both meals were replaced and arrived together. We were offered wine whilst we were waiting. This is an example of best practice. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Our coffee arrived with delicious petit fours. We hope to return soon and will recommend Drakes to our friends.

    Great choice for our celebratory evening. Exceptional service and the food was delicious. Fabulous experience

    Myself and my husband booked dinner here for my birthday. The food was wonderful and although the wine was very pricey it was very nice. The restaurant lacked atmosphere which was surprising as it was a Thursday night and not a Monday which it felt like. Overall an enjoyable experience but sadly we won't be rushing back.

    Our first time back in a year, and the quality is as good as it before when it was Drakes. I appreciate that we get a call in advance to check for dietary requirements, and these are always accommodated willingly. In particular, the wine flight was excellent.
