Warm and generous hospitality, outstanding modern French style cuisine, creative and reasonably priced wine list, elegant and spacious dining room. A top restaurant in every respect and only a pity it is a little difficult to get to by public transport.

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.

    Greeted at the door with a smile. Service was impeccable and the food divine. A great way to treat a new mum.

    A wonderful lunchtime with friends. The pre-lunch nibbles were marvellous and the food overall was just a wonderful experience. The wine list is very extensive and an excellent French red was suggested after giving the sort of price we wanted to pay. All in all a very happy lunch time and very good value. I will certainly return.

    Excellent. Not one whit down on what is was under Michelin starred Steve Drake. Surely the current chef will get his well deserved star soon.

  • ((((( 18 March 2017 by Chris Bingham from Cobham

    The whole experience was great. At least as good as when it was Drakes. Tasting menu was innovative but not over the top and the service was impeccable throughout.

    Wonderful lunch for four. We had drinks in the bar with complimentary snacks, followed by a lovely set lunch menu. Excellent Brill dish and the guinea fowl also looked to die for. Rhubarb 'spoon' will stay in my memory for a long time.

    A perfect evening from start to finish. No fault could be found on any issue, food wine and service first class.

    I haven't been to the Clock House since it changed it's name and lost it Michelin star. I was uncertain if it could maintain it's star quality so I took the opportunity to visit with my Godson for his 18th. We had a warm and friendly welcome on arrival. The tables were appropriately spaced for comfort and privacy. For the full experience we opted for the 7 course Tasting Menu (10 if you include the amuse bouche, cheese board and the coffee & petit fours to finish). Each dish was well presented and of a high quality with a range of colours, tastes and textures. Although one dish was not fully to our personal liking, highlights for us were the exceptional chicken and scallops, the pre-dessert which unusually included tapioca and the fabulous dessert which had wonderful textures and flavours tantalising our palates. The cheeses was appropriate to our preferences and the coffees & additions were a great way to finish an exceptional evening. The toilet facilities were good and the waiting was attentive without being overbearing. All in all I expect to see a Michelin star again in the near future. Well done Serina and team.
