Very nicely presented food and good selection on the tasting menu. The strawberry & pea dessert was fantastic.

From acclaimed chef Steve Drake, Sorrel specialises in creating stunningly presented dishes, filled with bold imagination. The menus constantly evolve with the changing seasons, while the restaurant setting is filled with historic British charm, and features rustic exposed wooden beams alongside other original features.

The Sorrel menu celebrates seasonal British flavours, and uses carefully sourced ingredients from the local area, and further afield in the UK. Game dishes include Norfolk quail with tamarind, rhubarb and grapes, while fresh seafood delicacies are showcased with options like scallops with apple and celery cannelloni and cucumber ketchup.

Carefully chosen wines from the sommelier at Sorrel in Dorking perfectly complement the bold, imaginative menu. For dessert, there are unique creations such as hibiscus poached pear with cardamom, goats' milk and crystallised gin.

Combining bold, modern British recipes with a classically styled setting, Sorrel is a 5-minute drive from Dorking West Rail Station.

    Sorrel restaurant is amazing, the food was fabulous and explained to us all the way through. The staff are very friendly and polite and helpful. The restaurant is in a
    fabulous very old building and thankfully has not been modernised and still feels like the original building it has always been. Thank you for the wonderful service and will definitely be recommending it to friends, especially for special occasions. Expensive but well worth it for special occasions.

    This is a very special restaurant- each course was an experience and the dishes were highly original and well thought through. The ambiance was very relaxed and the staff were attentive but never overly so. A most enjoyable evening.

    Really delicious fine dining. Tasting menu was varied, exciting and so tasty. Service was great - friendly, informative and attentive (but not overly so!). Restaurant was immaculate with lovely personal touches. Would absolutely recommend for a treat.

    The usual very high standard of service cooking and presentation. From many years of Michelin dining n I would give Sorrel 2 stars immediately. Steve's inventive menus are impeccably prepared and presented. I usually have some criticism but my only concern is the travel distance and the need to book so far ahead. Obviously many other diners rate Sorrel highly

    Amazing, delicious, textures and tastes.... I’m
    Salivating thinking about it. Steve Drake has an amazing team which made our anniversary experience superlative. Thank you

    Fabulous food. Perfect presentation with wonderful flavours. Once again Steve's kitchen skills did not disappoint. Decoration of table and restaurant modern and reflected the food.The table appeared good although when we arrived we did not notice we were beside a service position which did intrude into the quiet enjoyment of the evening. The restaurant was busy and the hard flooring echoed the footsteps the staff had to take. Just different from the quiet atmosphere we expect from such a restaurant.We will ask for a quieter table position if we go again.

    The food was amazing, we had the 9 course tasting menu and every course was a joy to eat. The staff were really friendly and welcoming,

    A superb and memorable meal for our wedding anniversary. We had been looking forward for some time to our visit to Sorrel and it lived up to all expectations. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent and advantage has been taken of the lovely old building with the layout of tables.
    Everything we ate on the a la carte menu was so full of wonderful tastes and the portions were such that one didn't feel too full at the end of the meal.
    We look forward to our next visit.
