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.

    When you feel a smile come to your face as you taste the food you know you are onto a winner. This happened with almost every first bite. An extraordinary dining experience. Would highly recommend!

    Dishes cooked to perfection with every ingredient on the plate matching perfectly with each other and creating an extraordinary experience on the palate. The pork belly starter and the venison main were both equally exquisite. Service was excellent, attentive and detailed. Even with face masks on, one can tell from the eyes that the staff were genuinely happy to be there.

    Amazing dining experience. Everything from the food, wine, atmosphere and the service was incredible. All the dishes were lovely but the scallops stole the show.
