Restaurant description

Holder of 3 AA Rosettes and winner of the AA Restaurant of the year 2018, Michelin-starred 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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Superb in every way. The staff could not have been more delightful and the restaurant is beautifully decorated and a lovely cosy space to be in. But the food? The food was sublime, every course and all the additional little tasters were just excellent in both taste and presentation. Thank you Sorrel for yet another truly wonderful lunch.

    This was our second visit to Sorrel, it did not disappoint! From the time we arrived to the time we left it was as we remembered it. Excellent food, service and staff, what more can be said apart from the "green green green dish was amazing. Thank you Sorrel.

    Amazing experience. The food was exquisite, the staff were excellent, the venue is stunning. The 9 course taster menu was brilliant because I tried dishes that I would never order however they were amazing. I opted for the wine to accompany each dish and every single wine was perfect.

    Utterly amazing experience and hands down best service and culinary experience we’ve ever had. The restaurant is charming and the attention to detail is amazing. The 3 course set menu was amazing and turned out to be 6 courses after Ashley the head chef had sent out amazing little tasters of their fantastic menu for us to sample. A firework of flavours from every dish that left us so full up that dinner in the evening was not necessary. The staff could not do enough and gave us a tour of the entire restaurant including meeting the chefs in there amazing glass cased kitchen. A truly wonderful time and made my wife’s birthday very special indeed! In the words of OBIWANKENOBI, “we will return and in greater numbers!” Definitely patrons for life! Keep up the good work team! Regards Stuart & Charlotte

    Fantastic food, friendly and excellent service. The steak tartare was the best I have ever tasted, even in France. My wife's duck dish was really tasty as was my venison, though could have done with a little more jus. Desserts, as ever, were exceptional.

    We really enjoyed the experience . The food was the best we've had for some time and our waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable .The old building surroundings are as we prefer . The only minor issue was with the booking which we did online .We would have preferred a slightly earlier time and received calls from two different people who did not seem to have communicated with each other .
