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.

we really enjoyed our meal at Sorrel. We had the 9 course meal and enjoyed every course The atmosphere in the restaurant was high end but also not stuffy or too clinical (as experienced in some other Michelin star restaurants)

i cam from france especially to have lunch in sorrel with my mother (x-mas present). it was great experience, customer oriented, kind service, fantastic food. Favourite dish was the desert with meringue , i also liked the green green green, and the duck was fabulous just maybe something we think should be changed : we think that all the dishes were just a little bit too much salted.

Very happy with everything. If I was nitpicking I'd say perhaps the seats are a little bit low? We received a warm welcome and the comfortable surroundings made it so that we didn't feel awkward, as you sometimes can in a Michelin starred restaurant. We had the 9 course menu, but one of the tastiest things I had all night was the first mouthful - the pork/filo canape. But rather than it all being downhill from there it was just a taste of things to come. My wife's favourite dish was the duck, which I also enjoyed very much. She is a chef herself and every course seemed to trigger something in her in a different way. She also really enjoyed the Green x3 dish, even though all three main ingredients are not her favourite when had in a conventional way. But the combination of kiwi, caper and broccoli really wowed her. I have a really sweet tooth and so although I also loved the duck my favourite dish was the dessert, a crazy combination of flavours that really set the meal off perfectly. The IPA was very nice, too, while my wife enjoyed her gin - both were local as I understand it which was a nice touch also. The staff attending us were all helpful and there when we needed them. Overall, we enjoyed it very much and look certain to return for my wife's 40th in November - a decision she made before the starters had arrived, I think!

Amazing, just wonderful. It was a special occasion and this was the perfect place to celebrate. High end without being pretentious, we had the 5 course tasting menu and it was just amazing. The duck was sublime. We then asked to also have a dessert from the main menu so good to have them be flexible with such requests. Having been before we had high expectations and these were exceeded. Service as one would expect but not stuffy or too formal just right.
