With Normandy-born Romain Havard as its head chef, La Barbe offers award-winning French cuisine, specialising in classical and provincial dishes. The long established restaurant hosts regular events, with taster evenings focussing on a specific region of France and offering themed food and wines.

Seasonal dishes are created to feature on the La Barbe menu, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. A typical favourite is the carefully grilled swordfish, flavoured with pesto and served with a traditional pepper, tomato and chorizo piperade. Alternatively, try the original roasted duck breast with sweet red wine sauce and innovative fig polenta. The tantalising dessert list at La Barbe restaurant includes refreshing homemade sorbets, and an appetising crème brulee with fresh, tasty raspberries.

Whitewashed wood panelled walls and brick partitions give the dining room at La Barbe in Reigate a traditional feel, while light pours through the large windows. A seasonal wine menu offers an exceptional list of French wines, alongside some New World labels.

Authentic French cuisine is served at La Barbe in Surrey. The restaurant is opposite Reigate's stunning Priory Park.

    I had a really nice time here, both the food and staff were excellent. We had a very good meal, punctuated lightly by friendly and professional waiting staff. The restaurant itself we very nice and had a pleasant atmosphere, with conversation bubbling away in the background. There's nothing else I can add, or would change.
