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.

    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.

    Food is always excellent at Sorrel, stunning flavour combinations and simplicity of presentation itself evidence of the amount of preparation involved. Service was also excellent.

    Another memorable meal at Sorrel - beautifully presented dishes that were all unusual combinations. And great service. We had the 3 course lunch which we really enjoyed but did lol slightly envious at other tables that went for the 7 time.

    We had the 7 course taster menu and would have trouble giving our favourite dish! They were all absolutely delicious and immaculately presented. The flavour combinations were some which we had never come across before, and worked so well. Nice ambience with very professional and welcoming staff. A lovely visit, thank you.

    A lovely meal and afternoon spent in Sorrel yesterday. I Don’t eat meat and was offered a Pescatarian menu alongside their Discovery Tasting Menu which my husband enjoyed, the food and wine was delicious! A big thank you to all the staff, particularly our lovely helpful waitress, Adlene. We will be back when we can book a table ??
